Domino papers by Rossi 1931

Before wallpaper could be produced in continuous rolls, single sheets called “dominos” were printed and coloured by hand.

The “dominoterie” is a handcrafted technique from the 18th century. The so-called “domino paper” is cut into the printing block help from a metal block where the pattern is engraved in relief with floral or geometric patterns, then paint by hand or stenciled.

The domino paper was traditionally used to cover books, boxes and caskets and decorate the inside of chests or cabinets. It was also used to decorate the walls of small rooms such as corridors or alcoves. It was also frequently used to bind paperbacks, which today is a rare testimony to a large production.

Following in the tradition of 18th century style, the italian company of Rossi 1931 designs and produces romantically beautiful “domino” papers.

The domino papers are also made to cover their collection of bound notebooks and stationary.
