What is Suede Leather?

Suede  is a type of leather with a napped finish, commonly used for jackets, shoes, shirts, purses, furnitureSuede is made from the underside of the animal skin, which is softer and more pliable than, though not as durable as, the outer skin layer

Suede leather is made from the underside of the skin, primarily from lamb, although goat, calf and deer are commonly used. Splits from thick hides of cow and deer are also sueded, but, due to the fiber content, have a shaggy nap.


Because suede does not include the tough exterior skin layer, suede is less durable but softer than standard (“full-grain”) leather. Its softness, thinness, and pliability make it suitable for clothing and delicate uses; suede was originally used for women’s gloves, thus its etymology.


Suede leather is also popular in upholstery, shoes, bags, and other accessories, and as a lining for other leather products. Due to its textured nature and open pores, suede may become dirty and quickly absorb liquids.
