You can buy here any of the textiles, fabrics and other materials we use to manufacture our own products, as shown throughout the Cover Systems website.

Almost all can be sewn easily on a domestic sewing machine, and if you have an industrial machine they are a piece of cake to sew. We tell you if this is not the case.

Brief technical descriptions are given, what we use each for, and any other uses we can think of that you might like to put them to; all new ideas gratefully received !

We use denier to indicate the thickness of our textiles. This is not the same as weight, which will include the weight of any surface treatment sprayed on, as well as the textile itself.

DEFINITION OF TERMS (click to show/hide definitions)

Denier (or D) can be roughly defined as the diameter (thickness) of the thread used to weave the textile, and this approximation is acceptable for everyday use.

A textile can be defined as a fabric or cloth created by either weaving or knitting (also crocheting & felting) with a thread, fibre or yarn.

Breathability is about water vapour evaporation, not breathing ! For a technical definition go to the BSI (British Standards Institute) website; our textiles comply with BS3424 (water vapour permeability).

We also use two plastic materials, for which thickness is defined in microns. A micron is 1/1000th of a millimetre; for comparison, a human hair is about 100 microns. For true English we also show the approximate 1/1000th of an inch equivalent !

These plastics are 100% waterproof (ie completely impervious to water) and therefore not breathable.

OFFCUTS of all the fabrics/materials are also available.
