Book Cloth Recommendation Sought

Good morning,

I will be purchasing fairly soon a substantial quantity of book cloth on
grant funding for a project to last several years.  I am making very
large clamshell boxes for scrapbooks and will be doing a bit of repair
of general collection materials.  I am seeking two types of cloth:


All-purpose cloth for general collection books and boxes with the
following characteristics:

1.  Forgiveness.  We are not skilled binders or anywhere near.

2.  Durability and longevity

3.  Flexibility 

4.  Smooth surface for ease in cleaning/dusting books and boxes as our
storage areas can get very dusty


Paper backed linen-type cloth


If you are in a library or archive that has purchased satisfactory book
cloth recently, I would like to hear from you as to manufacturer and


Thanks in advance.
