Techno look Leatherette Fabric

The ultimate vinyl leatherette collection for vehicle upholstery and detailing. We have nine vinyl leatherette’s in the collection in blacks and silvers ranging from soft to a very strong metallic.

The 1st is Etched Circles, a tactile vinyl with a shallow embossing of random overlapping small circles seemingly etched into the vinyl which cleverly catch the light at different points.

The next two in the range are Techno Look Mesh Effect and Techno Look Carbon Grid. Both these fabrics give the impression of being a see through mesh. The Carbon Grid has a embossed surface in a silver hexagonal grid effect with a black background. This dual tone and texture causes the vinyl to look as if its two separate layers, as if a silver mesh is laid over a black background. The second, Techno Look Mesh Effect is a finer look mesh in a soft metallic silver shade.

Techno Look Check available in soft silver and black. This vinyl leatherette uses shallow embossing to make a simple and classic check design.

Techno Look Block Stripe is a smart and uniform design using shallow embossing to make a pattern of very small blocks that appear to run in diagonal lines due to the light hitting the slightly different textures of the surface. This vinyl is available in three options black, gunmetal and silver.

Next in the collection is Techno Look Metallic Tweed. This Vinyl uses deep embossing to create a very shiny and metallic depiction of the classic Prince of Wales Tweed pattern! On paper it may sound odd, but trust me it looks really cool. Order a sample to see for yourself.

The utterly stunning Techno Look Silver Leatherette. Simply named, this fabric really is what it says, a very very metallic silver leatherette with a powerful shine and a true bright silver finish. The surface is textured to depict a classic used leather look which looks awesome juxtaposed with the bright silver. Order a sample to see how silvery it is!

Techno Look Metal Ripple is a deep embossed vinyl leatherette that creates a pleasing visual and textural effect which looks rather like closely gathered ripples.The use of a darker pewter tone in the background and silver on the surface adds further depth to this look.

And last in the collection is Techno Look Cascade. With a clever method of embossing into the vinyl at different levels to catch the light a distinctive pattern of overlapping of circles is created which forms a cascade of crescent shapes, the light reflects at so many different intervals it really looks like the pattern is moving.

Embossed and Textured

Nevada leatherette is a very soft leatherette inspired by new buck leather that’s common place in cattle country areas of America, particularly the state of Nevada. This synthetic version carries the similar brushed worn surface that gives new buck its distinctive feel.

Soft feel snake leatherette. The feel of this fabric is in between soft supple new buck suede and fine leatherette. The snake pattern covering the fabric mimics the smaller scales of a snake or lizard, the finish has a soft sheen not too much, just the impression of a light polished suede

Ostrich Leatherette fabric, created by clever textural embossing, this fabric accurately mimics ostrich shin leather often used in handbags, luggage, shoes and clothing.
