The fabric is heavy, tight and slightly slick. The "suits" are very subtle. I am making a poker table for my daughter. I glued 1/4" batting to the substrate then stapled the speed-cloth tightly to the frame. The padded surface is just barely bouncy and makes it easy to pick up your cards. Delivery was ahead of schedule and the fabric comes rolled instead of folded (no creases to iron out). All good.
My business wasn’t good enough to discount shipping on one item after being a dedicated customer.
I bought one foot just to test it against my build ideas. It is super durable, waterproof (it beads up and rolls around instead of soaking in), and easy to clean. This stuff is fantastic when you pair it with the proper padding (also sold here).
The only thing to keep in mind is that the edges are rough (frayed end) so you should expect to use about 56" of its width. It looks like it might be tough to use this for applications requiring wider cloth without showing the edges/seams. I haven't figured out a way to do it without using something to clamp down and hide the connecting edges. A minor problem, and a moot point if your build project is less than 58" wide. For tables, you can use the armrest/border to go over the frayed edge, which also helps keep it in place besides stapling it to the table's underside.
Great color, great material.
