Metallic Leather Fabric

A small project has come up and I am looking for wipe-able fabrics...something that I can easily clean if it gets a bit messy. But the fabric needs to obviously be great-looking as well so my thoughts have turned to faux leathers.

I have wandered down this path before and I remembered some fantastic faux metallic leathers that I spotted on fabric.com a while back:




Back when I was looking for faux leather, I ordered a yard of this fabric in gold and it's so soft. I mean, not like a baby blanket or anything, but this particular fabric is rather supple and I think it would actually do OK running through your sewing machine. I usually think of faux leather as being rather stiff and plastic-like so this fabric is a winner if you are in the market.

And the color tones are really perfect...they would look lovely anywhere you need a bit of a workhorse - bar stools, kitchen chairs or even some fun pillows.

Shine on.
