Origins of European Wallpaper
Wallpaper use dates back to the 17th century when Frenchman and engraver Jean-Michel Papillion made the first repeating designs that matched both sides.
Interestingly, wall papers originated as an alternative to tapestries, which could only be afforded by the richest of nobles and royalty. In contrast, lesser well-off nobles and the working class are not able to afford it. Then came the industrial revolution, and everything changed.
Due to this, wallpaper saw a massive surge in popularity as it's seen as an affordable and very effective way of brightening up cramped and dark rooms in working-class areas.

The backing material refers to the material used to make the backside of the wallpaper, which is where adhesive will be applied to it. The backing material is made of non-woven paper; this material is much higher quality than regular material. Also, with this material base, we can apply glue on the wall directly, then paste the wallpaper on the wall; it is much easier than paperback wallpaper, which must glue on paper first, then, later on, hang on the wall. Honpo youtube explains it easily.
Most of the European wallpaper comes with 53cm(width)x10m long roll; it can cover about 1.5m(w) x 2.8m(H) wall, so a typical wall in Singapore (ig: 3mx2.8m heigh) needs 2rolls of European wallpaper.
Smaller width also has a fantastic advantage; it allows you easy to paste wallpaper DIY.
