Want the beautiful appearance and luxurious feel of natural cloth at the economy of recycled paper? Essex combines our 80# dyed-through kraft colors with a subtle print and tactile cloth embossing, giving you a rich, linen-like covering material ideal for packaging, hardcover books, journals, slipcases and binders. This material has the same stamping and screen printing capability as natural cloth, but makes a great eco-friendly alternative for those looking for added value in a fully recyclable material.
