Facts about suede or imitation suede and leather or imitation leather garments

  2. Faded skins may show as fading even after dyeing.

  3. Not all stains may be removed.

  4. Slight change in shade or top finish may occur.

  5. Breaks and skin lines are difficult to improve.

  6. Unevenly matched skins are common.

  7. Heavily oiled linings are difficult to clean satisfactorily.

  8. Inset bites and scars on the skin, which were covered over, will show afterward.

  9. Shrinkage of garments with suede or leather is unpredictable.

  10. Color bleed onto the fabric is difficult and/or impossible to remove

FACTS ABOUT SEQUINS, BEADS, ORNAMENTAL TRIMMING
  1. Some sequins, beads, and spangles can curl or become clouded with steamed.

  2. Sequins, beads, and spangles can lose their color in normal use due to sunlight or artificial light or in subsequent dry-cleaning.

  3. Some sequins, beads or spangles are coated which a dye which can e affected by hairspray or dry-cleaning solvent.

FACTS ABOUT COATED or BACKED FABRICS

FABRIC FACTS-----Fabrics can be coated with a variety of substances.  The coating or backing may be: (1) vinyl, (2) polyurethane, (3) natural or synthetic rubber, (4) acrylic, (5) polytertratluoroethylene (PTFE) membrane (also referred to as “Gortex”).  The coating or backing is held to the fabric with an adhesive binder.  Acrylic coatings are actually applied in a liquid form and act as an adhesive when dried and cured.  The coating can be visible on the back of fabric or be sandwiched between two fabric layers which prevent it from being readily observed.  The coating or backing gives the fabric waterproofed properties as well as resistance to wind and cold.  Most coatings give the wearer a clammy and uncomfortable feel because they do not allow the body heat and moisture to escape.  Gortex fabric claims comfort since the membrane has microscopic pores which allow the fabric to breathe.  A new type of coating has recently arrived. To date the coating is limited to green and brown rain coats.  The back of the raincoat is coated with a black pigment coating.  Coated fabrics are used for raincoats, jackets, ski jackets, snow suits and household fabrics.

 

FABRIC PROBLEMS--- The permanence of  adhesive binder and the quality control used in the lamination of bonding process will determine whether the coating or backing peels or separates from the  base fabric.  Vinyl coatings will stiffen due to loss of plasticizer.  Loss of coating may result in a stained or blotched appearance.  This occurs if the thin outer fabric permits light to pass through where previously the coating prevented the light penetration.  Coated raincoats may become streaked due to uneven drying.  The pigment coated green or brown raincoats have additional problems.  The pigment not only dissolves and stains the garment but can transfer and stain an entire load of garment dry-cleaned.
