van Heek is a leading producer of linen backed materials, with natural or coated finishes.
The natural finish qualities are distinctive because of the natural look and feel of real fabric. The dye compositions have been prepared with great care. Consequently, the colouring intensifies the structure of the fabric instead of weakening it. High-quality cotton and rayon threads are used for the base cloth.
The coating applied to the coated fabric provides additional protection and makes the material dirt and water repellent. The remarkably high tensile and folding strength makes these products easy to process. The increased wear resistance makes these qualities particularly suitable for products that are used extensively and intensively. The textile structure under the coating remains clearly visible.
