Tori means bird in Japanese, and is a celebration of the artistry and skill of Eastern art. In Eastern art, birds are an important and popular form of imagery and symbolism, signifying longevity, luck and love.
Tori depicts an exquisite Chinoiserie bird trail with spring blossoms, delicately hand painted in our studio.
It features a subtle glistening shimmer of silk, on a luxurious fibrous textured paper in a deep regal teal colourway. Manufactured in the UK to the highest printing and quality standards for which Graham & Brown are held in such high regard.
Graham & Brown was established in 1946 by two dear friends Harold Graham and Henry Brown. With a severe shortage of paper following the war, Henry & Harold procured a large supply of surplus metallic paper, a surface printer and an embossing machine and started a wallpaper revolution! The company grew quickly and prospered until the energy crisis of the Korean war in the early 1950's and the tragic early death of Harold Graham at 39. Henry Brown, determined to keep their dream alive, appointed Harold's brother Herbert as Director and the business moved on.
