A lot of customers think that because a piece of clothing or some shoes are made out of faux leather, they must be cheap, but this is not the truth, faux leather is not cheap and is in fact sometimes, more expensive than real leather.
I said sometimes, but usually faux leather is much cheaper than real leather and can be obtained very easily because it can be stored for a much longer period of time and will endure time and humidity more than real leather.

How much does faux leather cost?
It all depends on the faux leather quality and texture you are looking for, for example if you are looking for smooth and “textureless” faux leather, then it will be much more costly, however if you are looking for rough and “industrial style” faux leather, it is going to cost usually less than ten dollars per yard, this may look a bit expensive, but the truth is that faux leather is also very demanding in resources and more importantly the price is always in accordance with the price of oil.
And in these latter years, the oil prices have augmented considerably.
If you are looking for a much refined faux leather quality and texture, then you will probably pay more than fifteen dollars per yard.
These are the details you need to understand about buying faux leather, now let’s talk about the best place to buy it.
I don’t like shopping for faux leather on the Internet, I need to feel the texture and the smoothness of the materials I’m going to buy for my work, and as far as I’m concerned, I always prefer to buy directly from suppliers, they tend to give the best prices and have also the most variety when it comes to products.
However, if you cannot deal directly with suppliers, I highly recommend that you check this website: http://www.fabric.com/SearchResults2.aspx?Source=Header&SearchText=faux+leather&CategoryID=1d5f47dc-9991-4088-93f3-26a376046a5e
