Faux Suede is a medium-weight, 100% polyester sueded woven fabric, ideal for projects (including upholstery) that require a soft, durable material. This member of our lineup features bright colors with a slight sheen, a stain-resistant finish and is soft to the touch thanks to its napped finish.

Wash separately in cool or warm water using a gentle machine cycle. Machine dry using a low temperature or permanent press setting and remove promptly to avoid wrinkles. If required, use an iron with a light touch with the printed side down for best results. Use the iron on a synthetic setting only. Higher temperatures may result in color transfer and melting of fabric. We encourage use of an additional stain protector for upholstery applications. Testing is recommended when the printed fabric will be exposed to heavy abrasion (rubbing).
