MT Casa: XL Washi Tape For Decorating

I’ve got washi tape on the brain now after seeing Tina’s home, don’t you? Do you recall when just last year lots of bloggers were a-buzz with the news that Japanese washi tape company, MT Tape, had launched a line of super jumbo tape called MT Casa that you could use on your walls, ceiling, floor – anywhere and everywhere? I do. Do you remember this post from Hello Sandwich? She really got me exited over it. Then, as quickly as the buzz started, it died… blogs went silent and nothing else was mentioned again. Until now.

MT CASA

Seems it was super tricky to find MT Casa in the US and Europe but now that British writer Ellie Tennant visited French design fair Maison & Objet this past week and reported about it on her blog, I have hope that we just may see it becoming trendy (and available) very soon. This is so much fun! I’ve been talking about designing wallpaper for years and years that you can peel and stick for those who rent and this stuff could very well help those who lease property and want to personalize it without begging the landlord for paint and paper. TAPE IT UP!

MT CASA

Ellie reports on her blog, “Available in 5cm, 10cm or 20cm widths, the new tape is specifically designed for home decoration and, as if stripes on your surfaces aren’t exciting enough, there are 5cm diameter sticky polka dot spots available, too.” Check this kitchen out below. Wild, right!?

MT CASA

That’s a little over the top for me, but in moderation I can see this stuff really working. You can watch this crazy kitchen (above) come to life here via this video that MT Tape put on YouTube. What a riot! Apparently, you can stick it to cabinetry, floors, glass and appliances, too. If it comes in white, I can see applying it together with black for a funky graphic black and white floor. The idea of being able to cover a horrible floor in a rental apartment, like a 1970s avocado lino in a kitchen, is a delight – right!?

Ellie reports that this will also be on display soon in London at TOP DRAWER. Looks like we’ll be seeing MT Casa in stores soon, exciting!

    I adore washi tape and have recently discovered a little company that sell it in the UK, Superlovely http://www.superlovely.com/ I had a super lovely chat with the owner at the Farnham Maltings Monthly Market

    So funny b/c just this morning I was looking at a German online shop and noticed they sell the aqua dot wide version (23.5cm wide on a 5m roll) and I was thinking, huh, so I guess they’re selling the big stuff in shops now! =D

    Has anyone who has used this on walls had luck removing it without damaging the walls? I had a pretty unfortunate experience with “removable” wallpaper in a rental apartment. I’d love to hear, if you have.

    Okay. This could seriously change my life. We have been living with an awful AWFUL off-white linoleum floor in our odd shaped bedroom for years. If I could experiment with affordable, low-commitment 20cm wide washi tape it would revolutionize that room and could quite possibly end my carpet dilemma forever.

    Oh please, please I hope this stuff is available soon! Thanks for the heads up!!!

    Oh my goodness this would be awesome! I have been staring at my walls wanting to paint/paper- but I lease and I plan on moving when it’s up, but I so want to do something like this! Hopefully it’s available in the US soon! I’d so buy it! LOTS of it! :)

    Has anyone been able to find the MT Casa XL tape in the US? I’ve attempted to contact Sweet Bella a few times but haven’t ever heard back. Wah!

    Here is a site I found that sells the Casa tape. I can’t where it is located, but I have ordered previously and the items arrive in 2 days or less! Great service and selection.

    I was hunting to see if anyone was using this for more than just wallpaper and came across your site. I’m about to buy some from http//www.mtcasa.com (they’re in the US) and wanted to see if anyone else is using it!

    I love washi tapes since seeing them for the first time this year at ambiente. I don’t think it would holdup on floors though, also it would be interesting to know on which wall surfaces it can’t be used?

    I would also imagine it could get very, very expensive pretty soon. Anyone have any experience in doing up a wall?
