This lovely soft faux metallic leather is perfect for goldwork and applique.
It has taken us a while to source a suitable man made alternative to kid leather. We trialled our find at one of our Craft Sanctuary workshops and it proved to be a real hit.
Soft to the touch and with a fine natural grain, it is really hard to tell it from the real thing.
Our embroiderers said they found it easy to work with, accepting the needle very easily.
The fine fabric backing means that it will not tear like real natural kid leather, allowing stitches to be placed very close to the edge.
This is a wonderful faux leather for applique work.
We offer this lovely metallic leatherette in a number of sizes:
A5 and A6 singally and *A7 in packs of 10
