In the textile industry, the faux suede style fabric is called faux suede or synthetic suede. However, in the textile industry, it is generally used to call microfiber suede or faux suede directly as suede. Suede is divided into knitted and woven.

When developing synthetic fiber-like suede products, the selected raw material is ultra-fine fiber filaments, which are woven into fabrics. After special dyeing and finishing processes, fine and uniform piles are formed on the surface of the finished fabric. Microfiber has the advantages of being fluffy, elegant, and soft to the touch. The drape and softness of the microfiber fabric are excellent, and the hand feels comfortable. There are many types of microfibers, suitable for making suede like polyester/polyester sea-island type and polyester/nylon orange petal type, sea-island type fiber is opened by dissolving method, and orange petal type fiber is opened by peeling method. It is more reliable to dissolve polyester/polyester sea-island type fiber by dissolving method to make it become superfine fiber after opening.

How to distinguish suede:

  1. The shape of the real suede is irregular, and the thickness is uneven. Its surface is often more or less, light or heavy, with some natural defects, and its surface is smooth and meticulous. 1. Generally, the sides and abdomen are loose, the full-material leather has obvious pores and patterns, and the leather generally has piles. The synthetic suede has uniform thickness, smooth surface, no natural defects, uniform pores and patterns, and generally no lint in the leather.
  2. The thickness of real suede is generally between 1.0 mm-2.0 mm. The thickness of faux suede can be 0.5 mm-2.0 mm or even thicker.
  3. Real suede has a sensual touch to the touch and a powdery texture on the surface. The faux suede feels different to the touch, and the softness can be customized.
