Most of you know that we stay away from plush fabrics for our mailers. There are lots of disadvantages not the least of which is the bulk in mailing swatches! We also try to stay focused on natural fibers for the most part. With the availability of the web store we can offer a few fabrics that don’t work as well in the mailers. Recently we found some wonderful faux fur in the marketplace from a local NYC designer. What made this one different from the many, many we see? First of all, the quality! The faux fur is rich, deep, and stable. It is soft to the touch and to the eye. You can just picture a luxurious coat, jacket or vest! Lots of my staff think its perfect for their next hat or trim for gloves! The kick up?? This wonderful piece of faux fur is fully backed with ultrasuede! BAM! What a wonderful addition to this already delicious offering! Like Emeril, we think a fabric that offers Bam! is a good thing. Well, we were sold on the faux fox, but then we fell in love with the dyed faux fur–short-cropped and plush, this very stylish fabrication is perfect for vests, hats or trims all winter long. And yes, BAM! it is also backed with dyed to match ultrasuede.
We always look for something a bit different to offer our customers…a kick up from what they find at other sites. Sometimes its in the fiber content, sometimes in the texture, sometimes the surface design technique, but we’re always thrilled when we find a unqiue piece.
