No more than one in a thousand trees will yield an uncracked sheet of bark large enough to become a continuous 3-D textured wall covering. Harvested with environmentally friendly practices and attention to timing, using methods created exclusively at Bark House® – poplar bark is a reclaimed waste product of the logging industry. The Bark House® 5-point quality control protocol ensures precision in manufacturing. Application techniques should be followed precisely.
Due to limb scars, epicormic knots, growth stress, bird peck, and lightning scars, no two panels are ever alike. Textural variances give each sheet its own unique identity. The distinct colors that flow from the north side to the south side of the bark also reveal the direction the tree faced throughout its lifetime. As an interior wall covering, the rich 3-D texture is only matched by its acoustic and insulation values. There is no substitute for nature’s beauty in a living space.
Poplar Bark Wall Covering is the world’s first and only product to have achieved a Cradle to Cradle® Platinum Level Certification (2017 – 2018) Gold (2007 – 2017). The certification is wholistic and rigorous in scope with third party verification of material health, material reutilization, renewable energy and carbon management, water stewardship, and social fairness.

“"We’re getting fabulous, fabulous response. There’s an incredible interest in organic materials, for the more sensual side of clean, modern design. When the bark was installed in Denver, everyone had to touch it. It’s a powerful and compelling material. We were all smiles. It’s an intellectually compelling product as well as a really physically beautiful product. And it performs well. It’s a sheer joy. We’ve all been wanting more. The bark installation is right on the money."”
