Quality designer fabrics

When you opt for a Cristina Marrone Fabric, you're selecting an upholstery material sourced from the most prestigious mills and crafted from top-quality yarns worldwide. Each fabric has been handpicked or specially designed by Cristina for its premium designer appearance and exceptional quality.

We offer a wide and varied collection of fabrics, encompassing classic, transitional and modern ranges to cover a wide spectrum to meet with the demands of today’s changing markets and fashions.

Upholstery Fabric Wholesaler
Murano Sofa and Chair upholstery fabrics

Covertex is an upholstery fabric wholesaler now based in West Essex, founded by the Brown family.

We started as a business back in 1977, using our knowledge and experience in upholstery to build a name for ourselves. Covertex quickly became one of the leading wholesalers to the industry, supplying an extensive range of over 2,000 upholstery fabrics both in the UK and across Europe.

We’re still running the business, alongside our daughter Cristina, who joined the business in 1999.

Who is Cristina Marrone

Cristina began with Covertex by working with us during the school holidays, and her flair for art and design eventually took her to the London College of Printing and Distributive Trades. Her studies culminated in gaining her Textile Design degree at Central Saint Martins, one of the world’s leading design colleges.

Turning her passion for textiles and her academic achievements into a career soon followed, joining the family business so she could make her mark on the industry.
