I love these clever paint rollers from The Painted House. These traditional  handmade block printed wallpaper rollers not only look great, also, the paint is reusable, interchangeable, has 9 different designs and the choice of two applicators, one for use on fabric and the other for papers and walls.

When I stumbled across these paint rollers in a market in Romania I was so excited I bought the lot and spent the next two months of the hiking trip regretting my cumbersome purchase. They have been used there for the last 100 years or so as an alternative to wallpaper. As an ardent up-cycler I have been using them ever since to bring unloved fabrics and wonky old walls back to life. I have adapted the traditional roller system for use in fabric printing particularly; there is also a more simple foam roller for paper and walls. - says founder Clare Bosanquet.
