Book Description

Wait until you get your hands on this rugged paper that looks, feels, and wears like leather, but sews, cuts, and washes just like fabric. kraft-tex is supple, yet strong enough to use for projects that get tough wear. Use it to bring an exciting new texture to your craft-sewing projects, mixed-media arts, and bookmaking. Color may vary slightly between rolls.

    Play with it! Sew it, stamp it, draw on it, fold it, inkjet print it
    Durable enough for totes, belts, wallets, book covers, luggage tags, and more
    The fiber-based texture softens and crinkles with handling and washing.

19" x 10 yards bolt in natural, unwashed colour.


Workshop on the Web

Kraft-Tex is a new paper from C&T Publishing that has the appearance of thick card with qualities of leather and fabric in that it is robust, can be stitched and cut and has a soft feel to it. It looks a bit like Grungepaper but without the rough, recycled and compressed feel to it.

It can be used like card for mixed-media work but because it can be stitched into, this

opens up more possibilities for making bags or quilts, or using for applique and cutwork.

It comes in five colours White, Black, Stone, Natural and Chocolate. I used the Chocolate and Stone to make a book cover. I used the Scan'n'Cut machine to cut out the shapes of a simplified outline of an ammonite from both pieces of Kraft-Tex (below left). Then I inserted the Chocolate pieces into the Stone outline (below middle) before backing the sheet onto a piece of Decovil to give it stability. Finally, I stitched the large ammonite pieces into place.
