Sensuede® and Flannelsuede® high performance fabrics were developed to be the best and most luxurious faux suedes for home furnishings. They are manufactured with the latest technology using microfibers that are derived from recycled plastic bottles. Sensuede is the ecological choice in engineered suedes. Flannelsuede has all the features of Sensuede, but with the heathery look of a wool flannel fabric.
Sensuede has many applications, including furniture for dining rooms, kitchens, family rooms, offices, yachts and sailboats, RVs, and many types of accessories. It upholsters beautifully and is one of our favorite choices for dining room chairs.
What makes Sensuede so special?
A soft, elegant touch.
You can immediately feel the difference -- a soft, smooth, drapable texture. Sensuede's luxurious hand is due to the use of recycled microfibers that are finer than a human hair. However, these fibers are extra-strong, resulting in a very resilient fabric. Sensuede is breathable and wrinkle resistant, so it's comfortable to sit on.
Easy to clean and washable.
Sensuede is water, stain and soil resistant. Most spills simply bead up on the surface and can be blotted off, or spot cleaned with a damp cloth or soap and water -- even ground-in chocolate cake comes right out! Sensuede can also be machine washed or dry-cleaned. Sensuede is resistant to mildew and is not attractive to moths.
Engineered to last.
Sensuede and Flannelsuede surpass the heavy-duty upholstery abrasion test -- that's more than 75,000 double rubs! So it's perfect for everyday use. Unlike less expensive imitations, the strength of Sensuede is inherent in the product, so it does not require a backing. Some faux suedes may lose resiliency over time, but Sensuede will remain beautiful through years of use. Sensuede will not shrink, pill or crock and resists fading in normal residential settings.
80 colors, Sensuede and Flannelsuede can be used for home theatre seating, bedding, pillows, bar stools, formal dining room chairs, family room upholstery and much more.
