Anti Copying In Design

  A design of translucent squares, hand printed in shimmering colours to catch the light and create an interesting texture within its reflections.

We make Checkmate wallpaper in a careful process using different types of ink to achieve the varying degrees of light reflection.

At their most reflective, the colours have a sparkle which seems to give life to the design as it catches the light in different ways around the room. In contrast, some areas seem to absorb light, while others glow with a soft lustre. It is this spectrum of tonal values which creates the textural effect of the design. In the soft colourways of Mist, Silver and Ivory the chequered pattern has an understated presence, but the design becomes more marked in the other colourways.
