    Hello, I have read the various threads and contacted various suppliers all to no avail.

    I have a small damaged patch max 40x40cm in my hallway from building work and I would like to match it if at all possible. I have uploaded a photo and I wondered if anyone can identify the maker and pattern for me please?

    Alternatively if anyone knows where I could get a piece made if possible by doing a sort of imprint cast? Its worth it to not have to strip and replaster!

    Many thanks
    Ann

    The problem with blown vinyl , like wallpaper and clothes is they have fashions that come and go , depending on the age of the paper I would be amazed if you could find a match.

    Even if you could get a small piece you would have trouble disguising the patch as the paper will be a different colour as your paper doesn't appear to be painted? Plus you would see the lines as well

    I would bite the bullet and replace

    Thank you for your response, I know its a long shot!

    Just to clarify it is painted its just a pale colour.

    Maybe there are companies who take an imprint and digitally print you a patch?

    Have you checked the loft for spare paper?

    There really needs to be a website that specialises in old half rolls of wallpaper.

    Thanks yes we have. Been here nearly 20 years, previous owners left spare tiles, paint, other old paper long gone, but not this. I suspect its been on for a long time and is several owners ago......
