This post is going to be very short, in it, I’m going to talk about the best faux leather fabric for clothing purposes, in other words, I’m going to discuss with you the best maker of probably one of the best quality fabrics that’s only designed for making clothing, and here, I’m not talking about upholstery.
There is a difference between faux leather fabrics that are meant for upholstery making and faux leather fabrics that are meant for making clothes.
The first fabric is much more rigid and is also treated with chemicals that can be a little harsh on the skin, while the second one is much more flexible, stretchy, and most importantly, it’s treated with chemicals that are skin friendly.
Can you use upholstery faux leather fabrics for making clothes?
Absolutely not, most of the time, a faux leather fabric which is designed for making upholstery is thick, very tough, and not very flexible, not the kind of faux leather that you can use for making clothes, and one more very important thing: it’s not very stylish and the texture is “rough”.
However, you should also understand that a faux leather fabric for making clothes should also be cotton backed, in other words, it should be thick enough and with cotton fibers inside or outside in order to support it and to make it more durable.
Let’s talk now about the best faux leather fabric for clothing, and from my experience, the best brand I’ve found is: Big Z Fabric.
Although the prices are little expensive, this brand offers some of the best quality faux leather fabrics for making clothing items, and I especially like their “stylish” faux leather, for example, they offer many leather imitations, likes crocodile, and even ostrich, and the fabric is very stretchy, durable, and most importantly, easy to work with.
