Does anyone know whether there is a source for reproduction Dupont Fabrikoid? The exterior of my Edison P-1 has pretty much lost all of its texture, and most of its color (besides having a slight tear on the lid). It would be nice if I could get it restored to a presentable appearance.

None that I know of. There are some modern types of artificial leather that emulate the grain pattern and look of Fabrikoid/leather, such as:

Ratchford's leathercloth from England is almost identical. They used to make "Rexine" leathercloth years ago.
