Our own range of quality covering materials have kept in line with the modern requirements of our customers, but we have not forgotten where we started and our ongoing wishes to see continuation of the traditional cloths being used by traditional book binders.
Alongside our own ranges of bookcloths, and Heritage Library buckrams we also represent several overseas manufacturers, in particular BN International pvc coated papers from Holland, SEF suede products from France, Hoffman Fine Leathers from Germany, Tex-Libris design led materials from France, and several others. A large selection of their products are available for immediate dispatch from our ware house, and samples may be requested by emailing: firstname.lastname@example.org
