Product Information

Flexi Mother of Pearl Aphrodite is a hand‑crafted, flexible veneer of layered round capiz shells, with a stain‑resistant coating. Edges of each tile are scalloped to disguise seaming. Thinner and more flexible than the original, Flexi Aphrodite turns corners and wraps columns with ease, even at an extremely tight radius.

  • Wallcoverings made of fabric and natural grasses may be lightly vacuumed for normal dust accumulation.
  • Avoid direct, bright or reflected sunlight. Our wallcoverings are not guaranteed against fading or color change.
  • Maya Romanoff wallcovering materials are primarily formulated for dry-use areas.*
