Our bamboo covers feature naturally occurring bamboo wood - a fast growing, sustainable resource. We oil them to preserve their beauty and then wrap the back cover with your choice of one of our fine cover materials. Top it off with a custom laser engrave for the perfect timeless look.

Bamboo: sustainable, organic warmth
Perfectly Padded Covers for the Right Touch
The spine & back cover are padded with a special 1mm high density foam. This allows each cover to have a luxurious feel that yields just a bit to the touch but bounces back to form - a bonus is that it also protects the inside contents of your album. Our foam looks good out of the box & for years to come.
1mm page cores
Our page cores are made from 1mm PVC that is impermeable to water. "What does this matter - I'm not swimming with my album?" We're glad you asked. We found that paper fibre based page cores (or substrate) were subject to subtle changes in humidity that lead to warping or bending of the album pages when transferring from our facility to yours and again to your client's house. Our albums stay flat forever. And that's a good thing.
