Adelphi Paper Hangings are producers of the finest quality blockprinted wallpapers, meticulously reproduced from original documents and hand-printed by skilled artisans using the same methods and materials employed in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. Founded in 1999, Adelphi grew out of a symposium of some of the world's foremost experts on block printed wallpapers, as it was clear that the art of producing these unique papers had been in sharp decline since the early 20th century. The Adelphi catalogue ranges from the 1750ís to the 1930ís, but Adelphi also has a service to custom reproduce a pattern.
