Heritage and Bauhaus roots
Woodchip wallpaper has been around for the best part of 100 years and can trace its history back to Germany and the Bauhaus period following world war one. Woodchip suited the period well with a move to simpler plainer forms, in this case, simple clean homogenous painted walls rather than elaborately decorated ones.
By the 1930s production sprang up in the UK to serve Bauhaus influenced trends and by the 1960’s dawned the Anaglypta Woodchip had become almost everyone’s favourite wallpaper, its high popularity lasting right through into the 1980’s -cheapened quality from unscrupulous competitors playing a big part in a declining reputation.
This year Anaglypta Paste the Wall Woodchip is being relaunched with a new focus on a high-quality user-friendly product in a traditional texture to be followed by new designs with less traditional appearance – but all reminiscent of the original design ethos of good simple, elegant and attainable form.

Anaglypta Paste the Wall Woodchip is substantially heavier wallpaper than woodchip ever was - at 150 GSM it is naturally thicker and stronger anyway making it tolerant of uneven and damaged surfaces.
On top of that, it now contains textile fibres, which means it is not just stronger but that it is dimensionally stable. Because of this bubbling and poor seams are a thing of the past and you don’t have to use a paste table either – just paste the wall and roll on the Anaglypta paste the Wall Woodchip.
