How It’s Made
Next Level’s sueded fabric is made using a unique 60% cotton, 40% polyester blend. Once the fabric is woven together, it goes through a special “peaching” process where the microfibers are brushed to create a peach fuzz-like texture similar to velvet. The end results? A surprisingly soft and unexpected hand feel, an airy structure that gives sueded garments lots of body and a super soft texture no other fabric can compare to.
Key Selling Points
Next Level’s Sueded Collection is made using their super soft, buttery fabric that has a unique brushed finish. Not only is its velvety feel sure to wow both clients and consumers, it also prints like a dream. This fabric uses a proprietary weave that results in a tighter knit, ultimately allowing you to do both high- and low-density prints. In addition, its processed structure provides a softness similar to flannel, yet without the pilling flannel is known for. Finally, don’t forget about retail appeal! For clients looking for the trendiest and most “of the moment” fabric, sueded is just what they need.
Perhaps one of the best parts of sueded and peached fabric is its printability. While you might assume such a unique material has limited printing options, Next Level expertly engineered their sueded fabric so that wouldn’t be the case. Steer budget-conscious clients or those only requiring single-color imprints in the direction of screen printing. For customers looking for bright and bold graphics, heat transfer is the best option. Either way, when you order through Next Level you can feel confident that apparel decoration will always be crisp, high-quality and long-lasting.
