Ayaka - 彩華 is truly a revolutionary product. Sounds like a really elegant name, isn't it? Aya(彩)means colorful, vibrant, like rainbow which is full of life, passion, love and fire. Ka(華)means elegance, superior and sophistication. When the two are combined it's indeed a powerful, colorful superior elegance.
Ayaka is an innovative wall coverings of Healthy Wall series featuring new textures for interiors. A unique blend of diatomite, non-toxic dyed natural wara, with a specially formulated color ceramics which produce a deep finish whereby the natural material of straw matches the variegated color tone.
