Suede is a type of leather that’s made from the flesh side of the animal hide. The skin is rubbed to create a soft, napped surface. Generally, suede is made from lambskin; however, goat, calf, deer, and even pig skins are also common.
Both leather and suede are fabrics that require extra care. When they become torn or stained, they are difficult to mend.

This morning, our specialty seamstress received a brown suede jacket with a torn belt loop.
Because the jacket was lined, she had to undo part of the lining to mend the tear.

After she worked her magic, she restitched the lining, and voilà–just like new!
