Some of the hottest looks in cover materials are available through Permalin Products. From tried and true favorites like our Permalin, Multicolor, and Iris, to newer offerings such as our Esprit, Balacron, and Chromo, Permalin offers a product for every situation.
One growing trend is interest in contemporary looks. This year we introduced Chromo, a futuristic-looking cloth that combines cool pastels and jewel tones with shimmering metallics. Chromo's high-tech look lends itself to binders, journals, albums, and high-end books.
You'll also find several ultramodern looks in Balacron. Brushed metals, silvery swirls, and glitter-dusted colors are just a small selection from Balacron's 500 available cover material treatments.
Balacron in particular provides options for another fashionable trend: reptilian embossings, which have slithered into the forefront of fashion on date books, journals, binders, and boxes.
Whether you choose crocodile in bright red, yellow, or blue; or cobra in cream, olive, or black, reptilian skins are in!
Speaking of skins, Permalin's genuine leather and bonded leather are the ultimate in elegance. Premier Pigskin's soft hand gives sophistication to deluxe books, bibles, and albums.
In addition to reptilian looks, dozens of unusual patterns are available, both deep and smooth. Colors can be custom matched, milky or bright, metallic or pearlescent—there's no limit to the looks you can create.
For those high end projects with exceedingly tight budgets, our Feora Bonded Leather provides a lower cost version of the real thing. Whatever you can do in Premier Pigskin, you can do in Feora.
Technological advances in cloth come to bear with our Duo product. The iridescence and liveliness of this fabric are obtained by weaving together two vibrant colors.
This vivid textile is, in our opinion, the most innovative cloth to ever hit the book industry. Covers for art and coffee table books literally come alive with any of Duo's 17 color combinations.
