Introducing: New Cover Materials!

Every once in a while we cull through samples of book-cloth fabrics to see if we can add to the offerings available to our customers. We look at the quality and durability of the fabric as well as its visual appeal. We were immediately interested in the new line of Euro-Buckram Fabrics when they crossed our desk. They smacked of urban industrial beauty and seemed a perfect fit for our sensibility.

Cover Materials: Color, Texture & Finish

At Mullenberg Designs we offer a wide array of cover materials to customize your Portfolio Presentation. We separate our cover materials into three categories: Coated, Uncoated and Leatherette.

Coated Fabrics:Mullenberg Designs Cover Fabrics: coated

Coated: These ‘coated’ fabrics are 100% cotton. They are durable and have a contemporary look and feel. They are treated with an aqueous coating making them stain and mildew resistant and easy to clean with the wipe of a damp cloth. These fabrics pair nicely with either the Uncoated or Leatherette fabrics.

Uncoated Fabrics:Mullenberg Designs Cover Fabrics: uncoated

Uncoated: These high quality, 100% rayon book cloth fabrics have a natural finish. They offer the look and feel of linen and come in a variety of colors. Note that the lighter colors are more vulnerable to staining so we recommend using them for interior cover materials. These fabrics pair nicely with the Coated and Leatherette fabrics.

Leatherette Fabrics:Mullenberg Designs Cover Fabrics: leatherette

Leatherette: A polyurethane cover material with a look and feel of calfskin. Durability and easy clean-up make this fabric a great choice for a cover material. These fabrics pair nicely with the Coated and Uncoated fabrics and take a beautiful blind deboss.
