Ni som köpte skumpa på SNS 10 Years-kalas fick som bekant ett presentkort på ett par Puma Suede.
Dimman gav bort ett av alla sina presentkort till Mr Harry Burns, ni vet han som har arrangerat konserter i STHLM och satt upp posters till samma konserter i typ fyrtio år. Harry berättade för mig om var själva ordet Suede härstammar ifrån. Han förklarade att det ursprungligen kom från en speciell skinnkvalitet som skinnexperterna i Malung, Sverige, gjorde.

Kollade vad Wikipedia hade att säga om saken: "Suede is a type of leather with a napped finish. However, it can also refer to a similar napped or brushed finish on many kinds of fabrics. The term comes from the French "gants de Suède", which literally means "gloves of Sweden".[1]
Suede leather is made from the under side of the skin, primarily lamb, although goat, pig, calf and deer are commonly used. Splits from thick hides of cow and deer are also sueded but due to the fiber nature have a shaggy nap. Because suede does not include the tough exterior skin layer, suede is less durable but softer than standard ("full-grain") leather. Its softness, thinness, and pliability make it suitable for clothing and delicate uses; suede was originally used for women's gloves. Suede leather is also popular in upholstery, shoes, bags, and other accessories, and as a lining for other leather products. Due to its textured nature and open pores, suede may become dirty and absorb liquids quickly. Suede should be cleaned as per manufacturer's directions."

Så var det med det.
