Re: [BKARTS] Airplane linen (was Leather rebacking and alternatives)

In addition to the super-expensive airplane linen, Talas carries
airplane hinging linen (not quite so fine, but about half the cost).
Bookmakers also has airplane linen at maybe a dollar or two cheaper than
Talas per yard (judging from current website prices). I think that they
both have quantity discounts for greater yardage.

Could you please tell me where one finds air plane linen?


Talas has it as already mentioned (but pretty pricey)

Cotton Muslin works very well..., and is much cheaper.
