Porter Teleo wallcovering must be installed by a qualified professional installer. When applicable, panels will be labeled numerically. Liner paper is recommended. Please review our Hanging Instructions for further details.
Durability & Maintenance
Porter Teleo wallcoverings are Class A Fire rated, The wallcovering can withstand some moisture, but like other fine wallcoverings, cannot withstand ink, makeup or heavy marks. Product is not guaranteed against fade, color change, wear or bleed.
We offer an acrylic sealant for the wallcovering for an additional fee. The sealant we use has no effect on the look or feel of the paper, and helps provide protection against everyday dirt and wear, as well as maintaining the Class A fire rating.
Regular dusting with a clean, damp, soft towel will ensure paper stays free of dust. A mild, dye-fee, fragrance-free cleanser that has been diluted by 50% can be used with a clean soft towel for light marks. For difficult marks, a white artist’s grade eraser is recommended.
how it's made
The hand painted patterns are individually made to order, panel by panel – never mass produced. Through the process of aesthetic judgments made by our highly trained team of studio artists, each composition is artistically produced – never created with stencils, digital printing, copying imagery or any manufactured techniques.
While each panel varies slightly, Porter Teleo’s mindful and meticulous process allows for continuity within the design. The patterns enliven the best interiors with a bold, distinctive color palette and a refined aesthetic.
