Faux Leather/Pleather GARMENT PRODUCTION
Synplus specializes in the best quality faux leather garment production available in China. We produce volume programs for men’s and women’s mass market retailers in the U.S. We have a vast library of over 50 different qualities of PU or Vegan Leather.
HOW IS FAUX LEATHER MADE?
Polyurethane, in liquid form, is poured on top of paper with the desired texture of leather and then heat treated. Another layer of polyurethane is added to give it thickness and it is heat treated once again. The paper is then removed from the polyurethane and woven or knit fabric, typically polyester or viscose is applied to the undersurface of the polyurethane giving it stability. Because the surface is polyurethane it is often given the nickname PU or is referred to as Vegan Leather. The surface of the PU fabric can be printed or embossed. Many of our customers prefer faux leather instead of real leather because it’s significantly less expensive and the duty rate is under 4%. Duty on real leather is 6%.
FAUX LEATHER FABRICS
We have weights and colors for all seasons. Our #1 selling faux leather is Supersoft PU with a hand feel so soft it feels identical to premium lamb leather. We also have a rugged large grain PU, which is identical to South American Cow Nappa. We can produce ANY type of garment in faux leather including: outerwear, jackets, anoraks, parkas, varsity jackets, skirts, pants, capes, culottes, shorts, bralets, corsets, short corsets, track suits and hoodies. PU works well with other fabrics such as cotton knit, rib knit, wool blends or sweater knit. We often piece faux leather with faux fur or faux suede for multi-textured garments. Faux leather is the perfect fabric to use for a style that would be too expensive in real leather, such as a trench coat, full length coat or full length skirt. Our library of PU qualities include:
- Supersoft PU
- Waxy PU
- Powder PU
- Antique PU
- Flocked PU
- Sueded PU
- Metallic PU
- Heavy Grain PU
- Snake Printed PU

SOCIALLY COMPLIANT FACTORIES FOR FAUX LEATHER IN CHINA
We have used the same socially compliant factories for the last 10 years because their workmanship is perfect and they deliver on time. Audits are provided for documentation of compliance. We also work hand in hand with testing companies such as BV, SGS and Intertek to routinely garment test to make sure we are fulfilling all customer testing guidelines.
STYLING AND PATTERNING
Our factories’ expert pattern makers can interpret any photo or sketch into a garment with a perfect fit. They understand the pattern curves for the right fit in the plus size men’s and women’s market, balancing front to back and understanding the correct rise curve in pants. We have a vast library of existing styles to choose from. We offer a wide selection of linings to hit your price point. Whether you need an inexpensive polyester taffeta, a washed cotton sheeting or a nice silk/spandex stretch lining our local mills supply it. If you prefer an unlined garment the factories are experienced in making a clean finish interior with or without binding.
