Tres Tintas, a Barcelona-based company, was founded by three brothers, Jaime, Mitos and Daniel Bermejo. In part inspired by their father, Jaime Bermejo Sr. whose company Papeles Pintados Aribau has manufactured beautifully printed papers for the past forty years, with Tres Tintas the three brothers have taken the concept a step further by collaborating with Spanish and Latin-American artists to produce printed fabrics and wallpapers.

The trio makes it a point to collaborate with and encourage new talent. With that in mind, they've worked with over two dozen contemporary artists and clothing designers to produce each of the four collections that the brand has put out since 2004. Some of these artists include Ines and Ivan, the designers behind the immensely popular clothing line La Casita de Wendy, Chilean-born artist Judy Kaufmann and, of course, their own father. Each unique design retains a sense of rich texture, whimsy and intricate detail, whether displayed on a wall or printed on bedspreads or couch covers.

And as befits a young, modern company, Tres Tintas also pays due homage to environmentally sustainability. All of their clean-woods-certified papers use water-based inks and recyclable glues.

A roll of Tres Tintas wallpaper retails for around $160. Stateside the paper sells from Kirk Gallery in Austin, TX, Urban Source in Chicago, IL, Walnut Wallpaper in L.A., CA, or Studio Four in NYC.
