When you find something that works, you stick with it. Ultrasuede® is something that I love and that I can certainly attest to being one of the greatest fibers of today.
When something needs to be crafted for durability and softness, it's the first material I look for. Having a fabric that is not only stain resistant but also comfortable - amazing! Could you imagine spilling red wine on your dress and not feeling like the world is coming to an end? I love the freedom that you get with wearing this miracle fabric!
Another fantastic benefit of Ultrasuede® is the vegan-friendly aspect. You get to wear all of the latest fashion trends without skipping a beat! Halston, Cynthia Rowley, and other high fashion designers have gotten rave reviews while using the material for outerwear in their collections. I've gotten creative and used Ultrasuede® in some of my tassel designs and love the movement and softness of it.

I think everyone needs some Ultrasuede® in their life, don't you?
PS - back in 2008 TORAY, the company that manufacturers Ultrasuede®, asked me to contribute to their fashion catalog: how are designers using Ultrasuede®? It was a great honor to be included among some prominent designers. I contributed my choker, which is an intricate needlepoint piece embellished with beads, pearls and backed with none other than lovely Ultrasuede®. The second piece was what we called a "waistlet", i.e. a string of beads pearls and Ultrasuede®, and ending in tassels made of... you guessed it, Ultrasuede®!!
