Looking for fake leather of a particular brown shade
I've been trawling through eBay and a few pages of Google search, but I'm having trouble finding fake leather of the particular shade I want. As the whole leathercraft thing is something I'm only just stepping into, I wonder if anybody might know some good places to look.




Places I've collected samples from so far are:
Textile Express
I Want Fabric
Tia Knight
Eurofabrics
Ainsberry

Or would my best option be to get a lighter tan colour and dye it? Or for all I know leather-like materials aren't even what I actually need.

Have you tried Swede fabric? The reference looks a bit more like that to me XD

I would agree with this. Looks like suede to me!

You know, the more I looked at the reference pics, the more I was thinking perhaps it wasn't even leather I needed. But I'm still so terrible at identifying types of fabrics I stuck with it.

Thanks guys, I'll look at suede instead.
