Fabric Names Explained

It can be difficult sometimes to realize what different fabric and manufacturing terms means. Here is some additional information on “micros”.

“Micro Denier” refers to the yarn used in the fabric. “Denier” is used to indicate the size of the yarn.  So, a micro denier yarn is smaller than a normal yarn, and usually is made from a polyester/nylon blend.  The fabric has not been through the suede process.

“Sueded Micro Denier” is a micro denier yarn fabric that has been put through the suede process. This process involves brushing the fabric before it is dyed, then again after it is dyed.  The brush used has many small pins. After the fabric is sheared, it will have the final suede look and touch.  A finish is then applied to the fabric to make it easy to clean.

Sueded micro denier fabrics are also easier to clean because of the smaller sized yarn that is woven together tightly, so that dirt, dust, and food particles cannot penetrate the fabric itself.

“Padded Sueded Micro Denier” is a micro denier fabric that has a layer of padding between the backing and the face, adding dimension and softness.

“Microfiber” is actually the name of a company, not the actual type of the fabric! Microfiber fabric is actually a micro denier.

“Recycled Leather” is a composite material made from the recycled leather scraps, with a cellular polyurethane face.  After-treatment is not recommended.
