- Rough side: slight texture, usually richer in color than the smooth side
- Smooth side: even textured

Hanging Caba Barkskin is simple!
First you’ll need to choose which side of the Barkskin you prefer- the rough or smooth side. Caba recommends using a wall paper paste to adhere the wall covering, but we prefer to use non toxic AFM Acriglaze. Wet the surface evenly with Acriglaze, lay wall covering on area, let briefly set, and then apply approximately 2 more coats. Barkskin can be hung by the sheet or cut into squares and installed in a tile pattern.
CAUTION: Be careful to not overwet, as this may cause shredding or tearing of the Barkskin.
Barkskin a hand-pounded natural bark material. No two are alike.
Blend Caba Barkskin sheets. Do not try to match. There is no dye-lot match. If you decide to hang squares of this material, shuffle your cuts to vary the shading. This will enhance the look. The installer can grade the panels so there is a more gradual variation of color. Being a natural hand-made product, each sheet varies in color.
Caba Barkskin is a natural, hand made wood material
It is acid free and created with an environmentally sustainable process that dates from pre-Columbian times. The bark is processed with cold and then boiling water, hand pounded and sun dried. The resulting Barkskin is a masterpiece of beautiful tones and textures, in several natural, hybrid and designer colors, bringing a sense of stone, parchment, or leather to a variety of applications.
