d'eco. The solution to healthy living in a sustainable home

All the wallpaper that we manufacture in Germany complies with the high standard of quality of our A.S. Création quality basis. Our customers have relied on this promise of quality “Made in Germany” for over 45 years.


However, that is not enough for us. Times are changing; our customers’ demands are greater. For that reason, we are constantly developing our wallpaper. A growing share of our range already fulfils the additional criteria for sustainability and healthy living. Since the beginning of 2023, we have labelled this wallpaper with the d'eco seal. As a result, we are providing customers who have a high sustainability awareness with a simple point of reference when buying their next wallpaper.

The d'eco criteria

Our wallpaper with the d’eco seal fulfils above and beyond special sustainability criteria of the A.S. Création quality basis. Our aim is to continuously improve the ecological footprint of our wallpapers and to keep them free from pollutants. With this, we are making our contribution to a more sustainable future.


The criteria for the d’eco seal are defined in accordance with the current state-of-the-art and can, in this way, be adapted or enhanced.

Free from PVC

The popular vinyl and textured wallpaper is characterised by its 3D visual and is particularly wear-resistant and durable. The term “vinyl wallpaper” is based on the premise that this wallpaper type is manufactured with polyvinyl chloride (PVC). The disadvantage: The expensive manufacture of PVC and its additives result in a comparably large ecological footprint. In addition to this, it is also difficult to recycle.


D’eco wallpapers are therefore free from PVC. Instead we use ecologically optimised formulae that manage without additives and are clearly better to recycle.

Water-based & solvent-free formulae

Organic solvents are used as an excipient for an optimal printing process in the manufacture of conventional vinyl and textured wallpapers.

Different with d’eco-qualified wallpaper: Here we use specially-developed print colour systems based on water. All the necessitated colour pigments and other formula components are blended in water instead of a solvent. Wallpaper with the d'eco seal exhibits the lowest ambient air pollution.

The criteria of the A.S. Création quality basis

With four base criteria, we guarantee our customers a high degree of quality, safety and safety. This applies to all wallpaper that we manufacture in our modern production sites in Wiehl-Bomig in Oberbergischen (NRW).

Exclusively FSC-certified print substrates

Each printed non-woven material or paper at A.S. Création is certified with the FSC seal. This guarantees the use of wood and paper products made from responsibly managed forests. With its valuable work, the Forest Stuartship Council (FSC) is contributing to the preservation of the forest’s ecosystem and in doing so, protects endangered species of animals and plants from dying out.

Phthalate-free wallpaper

The protection of the sensitive living atmosphere of our customers is part of our self-image. Therefore, we exclusively use healthy, harmless raw materials. For that reason, since 01/01/2023, we have voluntarily stopped using phthalates as plasticisers in the production of our wallpaper.

The RAL quality standard for wallpaper

All wallpaper by A.S. Création fulfils the strict requirements of the RAL-GZ-479 quality mark. The Fraunhofer Society regularly, randomly checks the maintenance of the numerous, ecological, healthy and qualitative criteria of the quality mark.

Lowest ambient air pollution

Our wallpaper is checked for its ambient air pollution. According to the analysis findings of an accredited inspection laboratory, all A.S. Création wallpaper complies with the thresholds of the best emission class “A+”. We achieve this result with the exclusive use of tested, emission-free raw materials in our formulae.

This is how you can recognise the d´eco-qualified wallpaper by A.S.Création

Our sustainable d’eco wallpaper is easy to recognise: Each qualified wallpaper is labelled with our d’eco seal on the insert and is easy-to-see on every single roll of wallpaper. 


In our collection catalogues you will find the d’eco seal on the back of the wallpaper sample alongside the item number. In the collection catalogues, which exclusively contain the d’eco-qualified wallpaper, the seal is also printed on the cover of the collection catalogue.


On our online shop and our customer’s online shops the d’eco seal is generally in the master data of the product.
