Fabrikoid was an imitation leather manufactured by DuPont.

Fabrikoid consists of cotton cloth coated with nitrocellulose. Among other uses it has been used for luggage, bookbinding, upholstery and dress trimmings. By the 1920s Fabrikoid was used heavily in both automobile seat covers and the tops of covertible automobiles.[1] Some of the early experiments on its uses in upholstery were conducted by Gilbert Rohde.
