Suede


SUEDE LEATHER, also known as nubuck leather, velour or suede is distinguished by a velvety surface. This effect is achieved by roughening the surface or underside of the split leather hide. The roughened, velvety surface of this type of leather type rules out applying a layer of dye after barrel dyeing, because the fibres would stick together.

It is interesting to note that leathers with the designation "SUEDE LEATHER" are made from the hides of wild animals such as roe deer and red deer etc. Due to the natural behaviour of the animals in the wild, the hide outer surface is heavily scarred, which is why in most cases the underside of the hide (the flesh side) is used, roughed and made into a velour leather. Did you know that?


A brief overview of SUEDE LEATHER:

• Very skin-friendly softness

• Feels very soft to the touch and warm

• Velvety soft, fine-grained and short-fibre surface

• Recognisable by the so-called "writing effect", i.e. if you stroke the nubuck leather with your hand, you will see the "stroke direction" as the direction of the roughened fibres changes:
