Sofa beds and other living room furniture are often available in a Microsuede or Microfiber fabric. You might be wondering about the difference between the two.
What is Microsuede?
Microsuede is a type of Microfiber. Microsuede is a human-made polyester fabric, made up of millions of very fine microfibers. Faux suede has the same feel as genuine suede leather but has fewer problems associated with the real thing. Microsuede is cheaper than genuine suede and is more resistant to wear and stains. It also comes in lots of different colors and can be printed in various patterns.
What is Microfiber?
Microfiber is a term used to describe fabrics with strains less than one denier (a denier is a unit used to measure the linear mass density of fibers). Most human-made microfibers are made from nylon, polyester, or a combination of both. These fine threads produce lightweight fabrics, that are easy to clean, and are resistant to wrinkles and stains, but still, have a luxurious appearance. They’re popular in clothing, furnishings, and cleaning products.
