2.05mm thick including the wipe-clean waterproof breathable coating which is about 0.05mm thick.
Highly absorbent with great wicking and evaporation ability on the soft side. Like most leathers this has a very thin wipe-clean layer on the more shiny side, about 0.05mm thick, which is waterproof breathable but unfortunately rather scuff-able. Stretch resistant. Washable up to 50 degrees,

This page sells one linear meter, 1.44m wide, but we can cut any length. Postage when the sales page is finished will be £10 for the UK. For smaller orders under about 33 cm, we'll make some money on postage in future because the order will roll into a parcel-size box, and this is a fair deal because we don't charge for cutting which takes an amount of time. Meanwhile you might get away with £3 postage for a 1.44m x 1mm rectangle.
If you want more than 33cm, or postage outside the UK, we can quote the exact cost or cost before tariffs. This weights roughly 1kg per square meter or 1.44kg per linear meter, so you can type those details into a courier website like parcel2go or dpd local and find out what's on offer. We can drop-off for free at most parcel collection points including the Post Office but not Parcelforce depots, as they are too far away.include the facing, this highly absorbent material has great wicking ability and some rub-resistance. There will soon be a range of point for quoting prices from our stock of two rolls of microfibre, 1.44m wide and several meters long. We can deliver the entire stock or parts of it at courier costs. It weights about 1kg per square meter, or ten square feet and Parcelforce via comparison sites is usually cheapest for heavy rolls this length.
The material is made of strands as thin as can be made, then made thinner by dissolving some of the strand. The result is a tangle of fibers with a very high ratio of surface area to volume and so a great capacity to absorb. It's like candy-floss. The material is compacted into an absorbent matt, sometimes given a surface coating, and then sent usually from Japan to Europe for further finishing like dying or graining.
There are much smaller stocks of bright red and white material, and another company had surplus stocks of silver; we could contact them or give you their details. A London importer has several colours of microfibre available by the meter and we could pass-on your details.
This is listed next to belts and belt straps, but too floppy and quick to stretch round the holes for most peoples' taste if used for a belt; it's usually used for shoes. For bags and wallets, a cheaper fabric or 1.5mm microfibre is usual but this 2mm would work for bags and we can cut into small satchel shapes with press knives or other shapes by hand or possibly CNC cutters in future.
We can rent time on a belt-length hydraulic press from a firm that have knives to make belt straps that way, if you want quantity and consistency, and we have an A4 size press here. It just needs a knife made into a pasty-cutter shape so that any shape smaller than A4 can be cut-out..
Knives cost £20 - £100+ to get made. We can suggest suppliers. We have knives for one kind of boot, which takes a lot of knives because of the sizes, and a medium-width belt knife with an adjustable length.
There's another 3mm thick material for belt straps which we keep in much smaller quantities of about 0-1.5 meters at a time, 1.44m wide, and costs us about £1 a cm.
We have a lot of off-cuts of 3mm belt strap material in belt widths but shorter lengths, suitable for key fobs or wrist cuffs or sometimes long enough to make dog collars. Let us know if you're looking for something like this and we'll give you a quote, either for the rectangle of material or possibly for it made-up into a cuff or a collar. Prices would be lower than for belts.
We can make-up products but don't have any experience in sewing (although there is a machine here); most of our belts have a compression rivet to hold them together or sometimes a screw rivet.
