How Much Does Grasscloth Wallpaper Really Cost?

Natural Grasscloth
Made from single strands of seagrass, the genuine article has a finer sheen than synthetic. It’s water-sensitive, so it’s best cleaned by vacuuming. In high-traffic areas, it’s easily damaged (and some cats can’t wait to get their paws on it).

Synthetic
This fabric-backed vinyl captures the rich texture of grasscloth but is scrubbable and strippable, which makes it easy to remove. Marks can be simply tackled with a damp sponge, and it’s suitable for moist areas such as bathrooms.
