Suede (pronounced /swd/ SWAYD) is a type of leather with a fuzzy, napped finish, commonly used for jackets, shoes, fabrics, purses, furniture, and other items. The term comes from the French gants de Suède, which literally means "gloves from Sweden".[1] The term was first used by The Oxford English Dictionary in 1884.
