What Is Suede Made Of

- Nov 24, 2018-

 what is suede made of? Amazingly suede leather can be made from almost any animal hide, but the most common is lamb, alongside goat, deer, pig and calf. The type of animal has an effect on the finish of the suede; when using thicker hides of older cows and deer, the nature of the fiber results in the suede having a much shaggier ‘nap’ which isn’t as soft as the lighter suede we’re accustomed to. The ‘nap’ of the fabric is the raised surface on the texture; a result of the way the tiny hairs lie across the top of the material.
