Lotura was extra durable wallpaper with simple designs that could adorn most walls in most homes. The name comes from Ivar Johnsson, who was nicknamed “Lotura” when he worked at Engblads Tapetfabrik, the wallpaper factory where the design came into being in 1957. Typical for the era with its linear style. Gravure and screen printing are used to create its fine, distinct lines. We decided to keep a link to the 50s with subdued pastels and a lively lemon yellow. The softness and simplicity of its style bring an almost monochromatic feel to this design. Lotura goes beautifully with Gårda, Ljungqvist Blad and Stilleben. Kitchens, open-plan spaces, hallways or children’s rooms – this wallpaper looks right in just about any space.
