Starting out in 1877, Lincrusta was the ingenious invention of Frederick Walton. Following his part in pioneering linoleum floor coverings in the 1860s, Walton went on to produce the first premium, washable wall covering. Lincrusta was an instant success as it replaced the painstaking artisan plasterwork found across Victorian England, appealing to upper class tastes with its sanitary properties, not to mention that it was beautiful, practical and durable. Absolutely unique and exceptionally beautiful, their wall-coverings remain unsurpassed for their deeper emboss, exquisite detail and enduring strength - adding a special edge to any interior.
In the 1880s, Walton expanded his production beyond the UK following hugely popular demand. His first overseas factory was opened near Paris, and would mark the start of Lincrusta’s fame as an international brand. Their impenetrable, water resistant qualities set Walton’s products above other competitors. By 1883, Walton’s brand has achieved popularity in the US, within the upscale property market - even being used to adorn the White House. Over the years, their coverings appeared in all kinds of homes, to government buildings, railway carriages and ships. One of its most notable uses was on board the doomed RMS Titanic.
Lincrusta is still highly desired and admired across the world. With 140 years of experience, the company understands what it takes to create a lasting impression. They sell an elegant, “indestructible” collection of wall coverings, dado panels, friezes, and borders - designs that add character, class and perfect styling to any home that they enter.

As a brand, they have retained their integrity by solely producing in the UK even to this day, a fact that Lincrusta is extremely proud of. With a rich and illustrious history, they continue to enhance the interiors of the most desirable addresses the world over.
Initially manufactured in Sunbury-on-Thames, production moved to Lancashire in 1918. From the beginning, Walton’s unique designs have never needed improving.
