Sileather – A Unique Eco Friendly, Chemical Free Faux Leather for Upholstery and Fashion Accessories

Sileather is a new and revolutionary silicon leather for upholstery and fashion accessories. A performance fabric made from silicon, it’s highly durable, odourless, and abrasion resistant.

With tough and stable construction, our silicone fabrics resist many outside forces whilst maintaining an incredibly soft touch.

Distributed in the UK by The Lindhurst Group, a family business whose Directors have over 30 years’ experience in supplying products to the commercial sector.

We are now looking for sales agents with existing contacts in the target markets and experience of sales to decision makers in the design, manufacturing, and furniture & upholstery sectors.

The Product - Sileather

Sileather is a unique faux leather for use in the upholstery sector and the fashion accessories market for bags, phone covers, and anywhere leather and other fabrics have traditionally been used.

The fabrics are produced in a non-solvent production process free from PVC or PU and any added chemicals, so they are much safer and healthier than traditional fabrics.

Made from silicone, it’s eco-friendly, UV resistant recyclable and vegan friendly.

Sileather is wipe clean to biro and clothing dyes and cleanable with bleach and alcohol products, making it ideal for furniture in constant use and requiring regular cleaning.

Sileather silicone fabrics are inherently flame resistant thanks to the protective nature of silicone. Our silicone fabrics have easily passed several flame tests. Full details of testing and more information on the properties and specifications of the fabrics can be seen on the website.
