GENUINE LEATHER
Natural animal hides made smooth and flexible to provide that unmistakable luxurious feel and smell of true leather. Many finishes available from smooth through to pigmented, woven and overprinted damask patterns – the latest fashion essential and quite stunning. Genuine leather can be quite expensive and price depends greatly on quality.

FAUX LEATHER
Forget old fashioned leatherette, the new faux leathers are quite remarkable and extremely stylish. Textured to mimic true leather their versatility is truly amazing. Hard wearing (rub test of over 100,000), wipe clean and stylish beyond belief, from smooth to exotic finishes with ostrich, snake and crocodile, plain plaited and woven, more finishes than you can imagine and they all look and feel like real leather but at a fraction of the cost.

VINYL
Vinyl is a manmade fibre on a tightly knitted backing which is very hardwearing and extremely durable, smooth in texture for ease of cleaning and inexpensive to purchase.

VELVET
Velvet is a type of tufted fabric in which the cut threads are very evenly distributed, with a short, soft dense pile, giving it its distinct feel. Velvet has long been considered a luxury fabric because it requires more thread to manufacture than other fabrics, as well as multiple steps. High performance FR velvet is one of the most durable fabrics on the market with a rub test of over 200,000. Highly suitable for high wear areas.

MICRO FIBER
Micro fibre is a soft, lightweight, warm and welcoming fabric with a silky soft textured surface. Micro fibre is also shrink-resistant, durable and provides protection against the wind, rain and cold. Concealed in a waterproof membrane, which is both breathable and anti-microbial, ensures that spills and soiling are effectively prevented from soaking into the under layer and can simply be wiped away.

CHENILLE
A raised or mixed texture fabric with a soft and silky cut over weave, in either manmade or synthetic fabric, giving a tactile handle suitable for all environments that require a more sumptuous look.

FAUX SUEDE
A fully synthetic fabric that looks and feels like real suede but without any of the draw backs. A truly reliable hardworking fabric.
