VENICE, CA, JULY 19, 2011: Blik, the innovative maker of self-adhesive surface graphics, and Threadless, the international community-driven design company, have collaborated once again to launch new self-adhesive
Pattern Wall Tiles. These "green" wall tiles are eco-friendly, non-toxic and free of both PVC and phthalates. The environmentalist in you will love them.
Blik is kicking off Pattern Wall Tiles with five self-adhesive sets that will bring bursts of pattern into standard home and office spaces in a whole new way. Featuring designs from the Threadless community of 1.5 million artists from around the globe, the Pattern Wall Tiles are the first in a series of new Wall Tile designs that will be produced by Blik in the coming months.
How to Use Them
Pattern Wall Tiles were developed for surfaces that are not ideal for full coverage of pattern or paint - create an accent over a bed, behind a chair, on an interior door or kitchen cabinet or frame a small section of a wall. The sets don't require messy glue and can be repositioned and moved easily. They are completely customizable and can be cut, crafted, and arranged in a number of ways. Rotate them, combine patterns and use on any smooth flat surface. Each individual Pattern Wall Tile is sold in a set of two or four tiles that cover 16 square feet of space.
"Pattern Wall Tiles are a fresh new concept that pushes Blik in an innovative direction," said Blik co-founder Scott Flora. "The tiles encourage people to unleash their creativity by cutting, moving and combining patterns. I love their versatility and see the tiles becoming popular with consumers who live and work in small spaces."
"It's great to continue our relationship with Blik and our quest to cover the world in patterny goodness through these new wall tiles!" says Threadless founder Jake Nickell. "Magic!"

ABOUT THREADLESS: We're awesome people from all over the world who make mind-blowing art. Our process starts when a great idea is born in an artist's mind (that could be you, that could even be your grannie!). The artist submits their idea to our site, where our community of 1.5 million debates, discusses, and votes on that idea. If the idea gets a really good score, we make it into a tee, tote, hoody, or tube sock. (That last one isn't true...yet.) Then, as long as folks keep buying that product, we keep rewarding that artist with loadsa money, prizes, and exposure. So people who buy from us support great artists and their great ideas. Neat, huh? Join us at Threadless.com. Threadless ~ Make Great Together.
