is a type of leather with a napped (raised, fuzzy) surface.

Traits of  thinness and suppleness allows for its versatility as

clothing fabrication.

Once traditionally used as

material for attire worn during the cooler clime,

suede is now applied as fabric for all seasons.

It is textural.

It can be  dyed to yield a full range of fashion fun colours.

It can be constructed into all types of core clothing pieces:

trousers, tops, skirts, coats, jackets.

It is a fashion fabrication perennial:  suitable wear for all seasons.

For 2015 and beyond

for spring warmth to winter chill wear-

the suede scene has become fashion wardrobe de rigueur

featuring creative colour and singular silhouette.
