Microfiber is a kind of micro fibers formed from a mix of polyester and nylon. If it looks like a suede it contains an admixture of cotton which is softer and has a completely different texture. In most cases it is not waterproof unlike this leather resembling microfiber, which is completely waterproof. Such fibers are very thin - 30 times thinner than cotton and 100 times thinner than a human hair!
The shape, size and fiber’s composition may be very different – everything depends on the desired result that we want to achieve. It can differ in various ways- form, strength, absorbency... What is important, it is recyclable!
Microfiber used for shoes’ production nowadays is of a very good quality - durable, breathable and often confusingly similar to a soft, natural leather (such as high-heels Smart Court and City Court or Bilion wallet from our brand. A large part of customers ask us if it is a real leather). That makes vegans very happy especially those who surely contribute to the development of this market, expecting great quality alternatives to leather rather than cheap and bad quality products.
Remember that the demand impacts supply! We - consumers influence the market – let us not be afraid to use this power and make choices consciously. There is a really wide range of good products that we can choose from!
P.S. And if you want to find shoes from microfiber in our store, check out all shoes that look like leather or suede;)
