  • Care

  • 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.*
  • *Polyurethane can be applied to some of our products after installation to improve our products' retained beauty over time through increased resistance to occasional or light moisture.
