Tactile walls, made to be caressed.
walls to talk about
Omexco is a Belgian brand of fine wallcoverings, founded in 1976. In our atelier close to Brussels, we design and manufacture exquisite wall decorations to dress your rooms in tactile beauty. Printed, woven or natural, each one of our creations is custom cut to bring poetry to your space. Reducing our environmental footprint is at the heart of every decision we make, since the seventies. We don’t cover your walls, we make them stand out.
design & environment
As a manufacturer, we limit our impact on the environment on different levels. We use recycled fibres as much as possible and favour renewable energy for the production process. We always opt for products with a non-harmful base and renewable materials such as cork or recycled sari silk.
Omexco has a long history of being eco-conscious and we push our creativity whilst trying to reduce waste, e.g. by custom cutting every order. Almost all of our products are eco-certified and PVC free. All these efforts allowed us to obtain the Ecological Label as well as the certificate for sustainable forestry.
Inspired by nature, we are driven by design, innovation and craftsmanship.
As an established designer and producer of luxury wallcoverings, we control the whole process from the original idea all the way to the production process and the shipping of the final product. This allows us to always offer a flawless high-end product.
A team of in-house designers is in continuous dialogue with a highly qualified production team to create new designs, with subtle colours and unique textures. A lot of research and development goes into the creation of those new designs in order to offer an ever more qualitative product. Over the years, we acquired a broad expertise in printing on non-woven and textile wallcovering. Our « colour lab » also offers a custom colouring service on request.
A full range stock-holding enables us to offer a swift and flexible cut length service. An efficient customer service and warehouse team do their utmost to ensure that every order is shipped worldwide within 24 hours.

Size and nature of your design, weaving and/or printing and a large choice of finishings, personalization, the colors of your choice, the required stain release or fire retardant coating… as far as customization is concerned everything can be done to meet your needs and wishes.
We are proud of our Belgian/Flemish origin and of our Belgian and French workforce. Everything we sell is made in our own mills, with raw materials we source from central European countries. What better proof of quality can you possibly require?
The roots of the Fibertex company go back as far as the nineteen-twenties when Emile Legon started his flax and cotton bleaching and dyeing business in Kortrijk. In the mid-seventies the actual Fibertex company was founded, now combining both weaving and finishing activities.
Continuous growth and subsequent investments led to the need for larger production facilities. The actual plant and headquarters on the grounds of the Kortrijk/Wevelgem airport date from 1992 and present the state-of-the-art in weaving, printing and finishing of textile niche products such as upholstery, curtains and textile wall coverings.
The common thread through the entire company history: the Legon family. Today’s ownership and management of the Fibertex company is in the hands of already the 4th Legon generation. This family approach stands for a daily and far-reaching involvement of the management, for real customer intimacy and for short communication lines.
