Faux Leather Fabrics
Engineered Leather or Faux Leather has been produced in North America since the 40’s and is used in many products, including jackets and upholstery, shoes, & automobile interiors. The materials used in Faux leather production vary from matte vinyl to 100% polyester products, some that are just a coat of treatment on other fabrics to create a leather-like appearance or texture. Consumers began to notice some attractive attributes to Engineered leather. For one, it’s not absorbent, which makes for an easy-to-clean, stain-resistant couch covering. It also fades much slower in prolonged sun light and holds its shape much longer than traditional upholstery. Many people today are taking advantage of these features while furnishing their living rooms, family rooms and bedrooms.
