What is artificial leather and fur?

Faux fur is made from synthetic fibers. They are attached to the canvas by sewing, or with the use of special machines or glue. The pile itself can be plain or dyed, including imitation of animal fur prints.

Artificial leather consists of several layers:

  • knitted fibers;
  • non-woven fabric;
  • special impregnations;
  • polymers.

Polymers determine the varieties of artificial leather.

The advantages of Italian materials

Artificial materials have many advantages, even compared with natural ones:

  • Keep heat, pass air;
  • Easy to maintain;
  • Not expensive;
  • Variety of colors and textures;
  • Suitable for production of any type of clothing.

It is obvious that only high-quality materials possess all these properties and characteristics. The accessibility of production technologies has led to the fact that artificial leather and faux fur of low quality are very common on the market. They cause allergy, skin irritation, increased sweating and unpleasant odor. Artificial materials presented in the Tessuti dell'Arte online shop don’t have these disadvantages because they are produced in respected Italian factories.

Types of faux fur and artificial leather

The classification of faux fur is based on the methods of attaching synthetic fibers to the canvas. If the threads are intertwined, then it is a woven fur. Knit fur involves knitting a pile into the loops of fabric. Faux fur can be sewn to the base, or attached with glue.

As for the artificial leather, its varieties are determined by the polymer. It can be:

  1. Microfiber is a soft and elastic material woven from thin fibers. It is moisture resistant, passes air well and looks almost the same as genuine leather.
  2. Polyurethane is frost-resistant, soft and durable material that doesn’t emit harmful substances and has no smell.
  3. Polyvinyl chloride is the most common type of artificial leather, characterized by long service life and easy maintenance. PVC is often used in furniture upholstery.

Understanding the features of these materials is not so easy. Before buying, we recommend you to advise with our managers. They will help you to choose the right material to satisfy your needs.
