FashionCherries Guide To Leather Look Clothing

Faux leather first arrived on the fashion scene in the 1970s. In modern times, many people prefer wearing faux leather articles of clothing because they are against using products made from animal.

So What is Faux Leather

Faux leather is a fabric that looks like leather, but is actually made out of other materials. It's commonly used to make a wide range of products, including leather look trousers, leggings, dresses, shoes etc. Also known as leatherette and pleather this material is often cheaper and more versatile than real leather.

Another reason for faux leather popularity is that it is a very versatile fabric that can be made into virtually any accessory or item of clothing. In recent years, KouCla as well as many other designers started creating form-fitted jackets, stylish jeans, flattering skirts, trendy tops and sexy mini-dresses using this material.

Types of Faux Leather

There are two main types of faux leather: PVC and PU. The most popular form of faux leather is PU, which is made by coating a fabric like cotton or polyester with a flexible polymer and then treating it to look more like animal hide. PU fabric is softer, more flexible, and stronger, so it's more commonly used in our products. This fabric also breathes, meaning that even individuals living in hot, muggy climates can enjoy faux leather garments.

Faux Leather Care

This material is easy to clean. You can simply wipe it off occasionally with a cloth dipped in a solution of soap warm water. This simple care routine ensures a longer life for the garments, making them nearly as durable and reliable as their true leather counterparts. Always test on a small area before you clean the whole piece.

1. Mix up some liquid detergent or soap with warm waterand use a soft fabric to clean your garment. Rinse with cold water. Majority of our faux leather products are not machine washed, so please stay away from machine-washing, or read the label.

2. It is very important to protect your product from direct sun when hang drying, as UV light might cause significant damage to your product (it might change colour, shrink, distort or even melt). Always avoid tumble driers as they might melt your product.
