Cover Materials

We carefully select our materials from the best quality sources around the world — classic choices for the years ahead. Fine silk bookbinding fabrics from Japan … beautiful hides from France and Germany … exceptional leather alternatives.

Lots of pages? If your album will have 25 pages or more we highly recommend that you choose a leather cover material, as leather is best able to support the spine of an album with a lot of pages.

Distressed Faux Leathers

Vintage ’60s. The times were definitely changing with the summer of love, the hippie movement, flower power and all things hand-made. Earthy leathers and the birth of Queensberry. Our distressed man-made leathers evoke a simpler time when nature and natural style ruled. Vegan friendly.

Japanese Bookbinding Silks

Our beautiful Silks are sourced from Japan’s best silk mills.

Durability notes: Silks don't have the strength and durability of some of our other materials and we strongly suggest keeping silk covers for lighter weight Q-Books, and albums with fewer pages, especially if they’re heavy. We suggest no more than 15 pages (30 sides), although you could go higher with Q-Book lights, or medium weight Pano Flushmounts. If you are designing a big album with lots of pages, leather is always your best bet, and won't really add much to the overall cost.
