About us

Brief History:

Marco Polo Co. was founded in 1971 when we began importing and distributing natural, renewable wallcoverings from Japan and Korea. We put together our Marco Polo Grasscloth collection, which we offered to designers and wallpaper stores. Today, our grasscloths come predominantly from China.

Our natural, renewable grasscloths include jute, sisal, triangle, abaca, and paper (straw). We also include cork among our grasscloths, and although cork is not a grass, it is natural, renewable, and is packaged similarly in 3 foot x 24 foot bolts.
