The paradox of Sensuede

Soft and supple, Sensuede is also incredibly strong and long-wearing.  Ideal for upholstered walls and any style furniture, Sensuede pleats, tufts and shows off nail head trim handsomely.  With a palette of 200+ colors, Sensuede is a designer favorite.  It’s the performance fabric of choice for residential and office furniture, media rooms, hospitality and hotels, wallcoverings and work stations, plus aviation, automotive and yacht interiors. 


The difference is in the details

Upholsterers and craftsmen love working with Sensuede.  It contours to any style of furniture, from sleek European seating to deeply tufted Chesterfield sofas.  Sensuede does not fray, it’s pliable and resilient and the 56” width provides a better yield.


Sensuede is a versatile performer and works well with a variety of upholstery techniques:

  • Nail head trim
  • Double-needle or saddle-stitching
  • Button tufting
  • Banding and appliqué
  • Single and double-welting
  • Pleats and tailored skirts

Furniture that lasts

As a high-performance non-woven fabric, Sensuede will keep its good looks longer than most woven textiles.  Sensuede is stain-resistant, fade-resistant, wrinkle-resistant and doesn’t crock or pill.  It’s more resilient than most textiles, and withstands wear without sagging.  Simply put, Sensuede is the best!
