Suede Care Kit

Sunfading is a common issue for suede, and the dormant dyestuff within the structure may be activated with hydration to resurface. It is like reactivating tea leaves with hot water to bring out the color, and in suede, Hydrator-3.3 is used. Fatliquoring that follows to recondition leather dryness also increases its color intensity with Fatliquor-5.0.
Suede in upholstery making is typically the second layer of an adult animal where the leather is slid to its desired thickness, known as split-suede. These leathers would have both sides suede, and the finer side with a higher density is usually used on the outside.
