Natural Finish Book Cloth, paper-backed

Cialux Natural Finish Book Cloth is an imported cloth from Italy. It is a lustrous, vibrant, glossy,
fast-dyed, natural finish, rayon cloth with paper backing. Cialux cloth is made from spun rayon yarn,
which is composed of short-length filament threads.

This distinctively European looking cloth is colourfast to water, light and abrasion. It is also moderately
priced. Cialux processes well on Horauf, Kolbus, WBF Stall, and Smith manufacturing equipment.

Because of its versatility, you can use Cialux to create an intricately decorated cover with a striking
effect.
