This custom made Suede vision fabric is a poly. Its soft faux suede face is a non-fray material with a matt finish. Weighing 250gsm, this is a solid material with zero elasticity, creating a strong, tightly drawn material. When light is shone through this fabric, the visuals from the face do shine through to the back layer, making the material slightly opaque in nature. It is fire rated for curtains and soft furnishings, and in addition has a water repellent quality.

Surface textures

Surface textures

The faux suede face has a gentle softness created by its brushed yarn fibres, it is smooth in every direction with no resistance. The back texture is a synthetic rubber, with a slightly waxy feel to it, still with a smooth even finish. The custom printed Suede fabric has a delicate and tender feel to it when against the body, softly brushing against the skin. The drape is stiff and has a very constructed body to it, firmly holding shapes. A very malleable material that retains its natural body after use, leaving little to no creases.

Frequently asked questions on Suede Vision 250gsm FR:

What are some craft ideas to get creative with Suede vision?

The suede vision has a matt coated backing to it making it perfect for cutting and sticking, it’s soft fibrous face makes it great for the tactile, children will like the softness of it as an alternative to slightly bulkier tougher alternatives such as felt. People use it for large and small cushions, upholstery, curtains, box linings, storage for precious keepsakes.

Is this a suitable material for curtains or interior furnishings?

The Suede vision is perfect for these uses, due to it’s rating as fire retardant, we are happy to recommend it for use all over the home for furnishings for safest option. It is also a very low maintenance fabric, so it shouldn’t often need cleaning and will be soft to the touch, being aesthetically, tactilely and responsibly suitable.

If I use this for curtains will it keep the light out?

It is an opaque fabric, so you won’t see shapes through it, however strong light will shine through from behind, so if you want a blackout effect, we recommend adding a lining. We can make the custom curtains for you in the curtain division incorporating all the linings and weddings you could need, FR contract or domestic.

Print Guideline

  • DPI-Print Guideline Icon

    What's the best resolution to print in?

    We print at 200dpi, which is a good combination of quality and file weight. Ideally your image should be scaled to 100% at 200dpi; this means that no resizing of your file occurs, preventing any interpolation.

  • Jpeg-Tiff Print Guideline Icon

    Should I save my file as a TIFF or JPEG?

    For multi-coloured or very detailed files we recommend using a tiff format, but they must be flattened. For simple colours and low detail files, a jpeg is fine.

  • RGB-CMYK Print Guideline Icon

    Which colour model should I choose? RGB or CMYK?

    If each individual colour is specifically important to your design, choose CYMK as our setup will print each colour with the closest possible match within our available range. If the relationship between the colours within the image is more important choose RGB; this will reduce all colours equally to fit within our range.

  • Print-Roll Length Fabric Guide Icon

    Maximum dimensions

    There is no limit on the length of the fabric that you can order. We have a preview design window set up to 5m max to visualise the print, but that's not a print limit. If you'd like to order more, you can increase the quantity (x2 for 10m or x 4 for 20m for e.g.) and then your orders can be as long as you'd like, with a built in automatic volume discount too. The maximum print width of each fabric can be found on the individual fabric pages or in our design interface.

  • Borders-Print Guideline Icon

    Do I need to incorporate white space within my design if I want a border or some cutting space?

    Yes, that might help you. Always incorporate any extra space or boarders into your purchased fabric size. We trim squarely around fabric samples and fabric prints, leaving approximately 5mm white space. Cutting neatly on the line has an additional fee.

  • Transfer-Print Guideline Icon

    Do you print on fabric a customer supplies?

    Unfortunately not; we like to test meticulously so that we know what gets best results on our fabrics, and our facilities cater perfectly to them. We do however print sublimation paper to order, and if you have access to a heat press you can press your own fabrics easily.

  • Shrinkage-Print Guideline Icon

    What is the situation with material shrinkage?

    Just like many fabric printing processes, there is the potential for shrinkage. Depending on the fabric, please expect and allow between 2-8% shrinkage which you need to plan for in your dimensions. This percentage can vary from print run to print run and between fabrics, so we would advise to order a little more material than you require for your project.

  • Print-Both Sides Print Guideline Icon

    Can I print on both sides of the fabric?

    We do not offer printing on both sides of the fabric, as a lot of our fabrics are semi-transparent. As the customer, you can consider the effect of printing on both sides one of our fabrics and contact us, and we will get back to you if it's feasible.

  • Labels-Print Guideline Icon

    Can I order labels in another fabric? Will you cut them like you do with the normal fabric labels?

    At the moment no, our labels are all printed on the same satin fabric. We may introduce more in the future, but for now this is the best choice. The labels are all cut the same way. You can order the fabric of your choice and make the labels yourself, but we do not cut different fabric into label format.

  • Eco friendly Printing

    How is your fabric printing eco-friendly?

    With environmental consciousness in mind, our fabrics are all printed using completely water-based inks. This means no chemicals or solvents are used. Our heat fixing procedure fixes the colours and prints, avoiding the downsides of steaming, such as excess or contaminated water returning into the waste system. We have one facility where we conduct all the printing, production and fulfillment.




Sizing For Hemming And Shrinkage

Hemming Options ICON

We have a full Cut & Sew service here at Contrado, and are able to hem your fabric prints for a small additional charge. We create a small one- or two-fold hem that typically uses 5 to 20mm of material, depending on the thickness of the fabric. So, for example, if you want a finished piece of fabric that measures 100 x 100cm, you will need to order a size of 101.5cm x 101.5cm to allow for the hem (on top of that please also allow for shrinkage of min 2%). The thicker the fabric, the bigger the hem will be. You can choose to have your prints hemmed with either Black or White thread. On our silk and other light woven fabrics, one hemmed edge will be straight (vertically down the roll) and the other will be slightly rippled. The hemming material allowances are as follows and you need to make your print bigger to accommodate the hem:

  • Light Fabrics (20-100gsm): For silks and other light fabrics, we use 6-8mm in the hem (2 fold), so overall width/height will be minus 12-16mm
  • Medium Fabrics (101-200gsm): For medium-weight fabrics that fray, we use 15-20mm in the hem (2 fold) so overall width/height will be minus 35-40mm
  • Stiff/Heavy/No-fray fabrics: we use 15-20mm in the hem (1 fold) so overall width/height will be minus 35-40mm
All of these measurements are approximate and can vary. Including with shrinkage it can mean a fairly significant difference to ordered dimensions, so please plan your print accordingly. Depending on how open the weave is, our fabric can shrink anywhere from 2% to 8% with the average being 2.5%.
 

How Would you Like the Edge?

We have four finishing options for your fabric order: 
  • As it comes. We cut around your image, leaving a simply scissor cut, perhaps uneven white fabric border. 
  • Hem with thread. We can hem your fabric with a choice of black or white thread. Please allow 1-2 days additional production time. See below for information on how hemming affects the size of your print. We offer an overlock hem as well as a folded hem (one or two fold depending on the fabric) however not all fabrics are suited to both hem types. If you can see both options, it means both are suitable, and you will be able to chose whichever you prefer. 
  • Cut on the line. We will cut neatly on the edge of your image. Please be aware, when we cut along the line, we have to cut against the grain of the fabric. This is the standard procedure for fabric cutting. This means that with some fabrics, for example, Georgette and Mulmul, which have a slight wave in them, some fraying will occur. This is unavoidable, as the cut follows the grain of the textile. 
All of our fabrics are cut manually by hand, with the utmost care and attention. If your fabric has a slightly uneven look on the edges, or a touch of fraying, this does not indicate a flaw in the textile. It is not always possible to achieve a perfect straight cut with certain fabrics, so please do bare this in mind when it comes to your design. If you have any queries or would like to know about our cutting methods in more detail, please get in touch and we will be more than happy to discuss them with you.
