What is fibrous plastering?

Fibrous plastering is a centuries-old process for decorating internal walls and ceilings. It involves casting architectural features using three materials: casting plaster, wooden laths and hessian or canvas scrim. Features are manufactured in workshops, transported to side and fitted using strong adhesives or mechanical fixings.

Award-winning skills

The history of fibrous plastering stretches back to the 18th century. Today, thanks to its lightweight, resilient and fireproof qualities, this traditional material is still widely used. Techniques for moulding, manufacture and fitting are highly specialised and Tomei & Sons’ award-winning craftsmen undergo many years of on-the-job training.
