This is a hero amongst our fabrics, fire retardant! It can be safely washed on a medium wash, medium tumble, or happy to hang when damp. Loves a good iron, steam and brush, but loathes being wrung out, so pretty please, take care of it.

How Does Faux Suede Fabric Printing Work?
The soft brushed yarn fibres are backed with a synthetic rubber that has a slightly waxy feel, making this a great fabric for lining and upholstery. Our specialist dye sublimation process fuses the ink deep into the fibres, creating a permanent print. Your designs won't peel away or scratch off, so you can enjoy your homemade creations for years to come. Everything is done to order and finished to your specific requirements, allowing you to concentrate on being creative!
*When you design your made in the suede fabric, you have 4 edge finishing options: cut on the line for precision, hemmed with white thread, hemmed with black thread or left as a plain rough cut.
How to Care for Your Custom Suede Fabric
This is not a diva fabric by any means, and is relatively low maintenance. Machine wash on cold-medium, medium tumble dry or hang dry when damp. It loves to be ironed, steamed and given a brush if you feel the fibres are starting to stiffen. You don't need to wash it often, leaving you to enjoy getting on with other crafty hobbies.
What Can I Make at Home Using my Suede Vision Material?
Due to the rubber textured backing, it's a great material for cutting and sticking, so indulge your children in a fun arts and crafts afternoon using our faux suede fabric. They'll love that it's customised with bespoke designs, photos or patterns.
Being largely opaque with a structured, stiff drape, it's one of our favourite textiles to use for making curtains. A less labour intensive use is to line storage or jewellery boxes with custom suede fabric. Restoring old furniture and gifts is super popular, and this suede style material is perfect for doing just that.
