For over 150 years van Heek have been active as an industrial supplier of exclusive woven and knitted fabrics for the worldwide market. The entire weaving, knitting, upgrading and finishing process takes place in their own factory in the Netherlands.

van Heek produce and sell a vast variety of textile bookbinding materials for books and luxury packaging on a global scale. Whether you need a book cloth with a natural finish or coated, van Heek have it!

The natural finish qualities are distinctive because of the natural look and feel of real fabric. The dye compositions have been prepared with great care. Consequently, the colouring intensifies the structure of the fabric instead of weakening it. High-quality cotton and rayon threads are used for the base cloth.

The coating applied to the coated fabric provides additional protection and makes the material dirt and water repellent. The remarkably high tensile and folding strength makes these products easy to process. The increased wear resistance makes these qualities particularly suitable for products that are used extensively and intensively. The textile structure under the coating remains clearly visible.
