Ultrasuede is a wonderful foundation for any bead embroidery project. Available in 24 beautiful colors, it creates the perfect backdrop and support for your cabochons and beads. Caravan Beads' selection of ultra suede includes many pre-cut shapes for earrings, pendants, necklaces, and bracelets. The shapes range from small and delicate (perfect for earrings) to bold and intricate (amazing as pendants or bracelets). All of our shapes are laser cut at our warehouse in Portland, Maine. The precision cut laser pieces are a joy to work with. No more trimming, tracing, or guesswork! You get a perfectly matched identical pair of pieces for the front and back of your project. The earring ultra suede pieces come with 2 sets of front and back, and the bracelet, and necklace shapes come in one front and back set.
If you prefer to cut your own ultra suede, or bead first and then cut, we also
sell all the colors of ultra suede in various sizes. Order a 9x9 square, a half yard, or a full yard depending on the size of your projects.
Ultra suede is a synthetic suede fabric. It’s soft, supple and sensuous to the touch. It’s also resistant to tears, stains and discoloration over time which is important when you think of all the work that goes into an embroidery piece. You want the backing to be beautiful but most importantly to last the test of time. The backing of any embroidered pendant will be the part that comes into contact with your skin. The soft backing is breathable and comfortable to wear and has a 'buttery-to-the-touch' feel.
