Microfiber Skin – FUTURE SKIN

9000 meters encapsulated in 1 gram of microfiber, microfiber leather gradually becomes the king of the leather industry.


Historically, cowhide has occupied a large part of the world leather industry thanks to its solid texture, durability and ease of processing. However, the position of cowhide and other animal skins is about to be dethroned by the superiority of microfiber leather.

Microfiber leather, also known as microfiber synthetic leather, is a new trend in the material industry. The introduction of microfiber leather not only has a positive impact on the environment, but also contributes to reducing the impact of another controversial industry: slaughter.


Microfiber – Attached to every little detail


Previously  artificial leather lines could only simulate the outer surface layer, but did not handle the internal texture well.. Therefore, the products made often look attractive but the durability is not high and revealed many defects after only 6 months of use. Much lower than traditional cowhide, goat skin, animal skin…


However, microfiber weaving technology on microfiber skin has really revolutionized this change. In the past, synthetic leather is usually made from non-natural and nylon-based materials such as PVC, cotton, polyester… and is only surface-treated to look like raw leather. Whereas microfiber synthetic leather treats the leather from the texture level, delivering a premium-level leather finish.


Microfiber material is the thinnest fiber line today. 1 gram of current microfibers can reach a length of 9000m, much smaller and thinner than conventional fibers.

Microfiber leather is created by knitting these microfibres together to mimic the texture of real leather to create a stable consistency without relying heavily on industrial glues and glues.


Microfiber – Outstanding advantages over traditional leather


Not only restricting the slaughter of animals, microfiber leather even has many advantages over current popular leather lines.


Outstanding Durability

Thanks to the dense texture of the microfibers and the knitting technology, microfiber leather is extremely durable, even more durable than other natural leathers. In addition, on the microfiber textile layer, the microfiber leather is also coated with high-tech PU resin to simulate the surface of animal skin lines.


The microfiber leather surface after this treatment also overcomes the weaknesses that natural leather cannot do, such as waterproofing, water resistance, etc.

More hygienic


Microfiber leather does not have natural pores like animal skin, so it does not cause dust in the interstitium.


Besides, the waterproof and water-resistant feature of microfiber leather makes the cleaning process of the skin much simpler and lighter. In addition, the surface does not have crevices that make mold and bacteria unable to attach and multiply. In microfiber leather, “clean” is not only appearance but also properties.

Easy to customize


Each different natural leather line only serves a few different designs. However, microfiber leather is not that picky. Microfiber leather panels can be easily dyed as you like, color retention is long, elasticity, hardness, softness of the leather can also be adjusted thanks to the change in microfiber texture.


This opens up opportunities for designers to become more creative in product lines. Bringing innovation in design to the leather industry.


Environmental friendliness


The natural leather industry grew out of the livestock slaughter industry. Not only that, the raw leather tanning process also consumes a lot of water resources and requires the use of many chemicals that affect the environment.


The introduction of microfiber leather did not limit the slaughter of cattle. Microfiber manufacturing process and microfiber weaving technology are also environmentally friendly technologies. It can be said that microfiber leather is the future of the leather industry in particular and the fashion industry in general.
