Where it started
Established by the Brown family in 1977, we were joined by our daughter Cristina Marrone in 1999, whose natural flair for fabric design and impeccable attention to detail helped elevate Covertex and the Cristina Marrone brand to a new level.
Cristina Marrone is now a well-known West Essex-based designer and purveyor of premium, designer contract fabrics to commercial sectors such as hospitality, healthcare, leisure, education and corporate environments.
We are experts in combining excellent quality with great value in order to supply unbelievably durable products in a huge range of stunning contemporary and traditional designs.
Our commitment to you
There will always be a Cristina Marrone team member available to talk to you whether you call us on the phone or email in. We pride ourselves on our expertise and our ability to give you the answers you need.
We deliver the best possible value without compromising on quality, selecting fabrics for their style and elegance. This means you can achieve a high-end aesthetic on budget without the associated price tag or over-inflated markup.
We offer a broad range of fabrics including faux leathers, velvets and luxury chenilles for a variety of contract applications. This includes hotel fabrics, as well as high-performance fabrics suitable for office interior designers, restaurant designs and healthcare settings.
Our customers choose us for the quality and longevity of our fabrics, many of which are high-performance fabrics with commercial-grade Martindale rub tests well in excess of the minimum 30,000 rubs.
We’re a family-run business that is committed to ongoing innovation. We stay at the forefront of the industry by continually expanding our fabric selection and exploring sustainable production practices such as GreenFR®.
Green FR: A sustainable approach to flame-retardant treatment
We are proud to be able to incorporate GreenFR® treatment into our processes. This is an innovative and exclusive flame-retardant (FR) coating suitable for all fabric types which offers a safe and efficient flame-retardant solution that is both sustainable and eco-friendly.
Traditionally, halogen-free flame retardant treatments have been limited to cotton or cotton-rich fabrics. GreenFR® has changed the game by making this treatment available for all fully synthetic fabrics, ensuring the highest safety standards across our entire collection.
In our commitment to greener and more sustainable production, GreenFR® maintains uncompromising safety standards. Each collection specifies its flame retardancy level, with many meeting the stringent Crib 5 standard. It's worth noting that even fabrics treated against Cig + Match can be further enhanced to meet Crib 5 standards, ensuring the utmost safety for homes and businesses.
“We have been using Covertex for a number of years now and James and his team offer us an excellent service all round, from sampling, bespoke fabric and colour options and a very efficient delivery service.
