So far my softweave is doing well! Got it around Jan 2019.

So 5months in, still good ��. Very satisfied. ��
u need to use the chair for 2 years to see if there is any peeling. 5 months is too short.

Excuse me if i am wrong;

The "softweave" series seats is covered in fabric, not PU leather. Or there are part of the chair that is covered with PU leather?

Tbh, I have never before seen fabric "peel". Fabric have it's own sets of problem/issues, however peeling is probabily not one of it.

I have the softweave. It's more of a material for clean room usage. If you're gonna be eating and smoking, your chair is gonna smell like KTV. The fabric itself keeps you warm but it's easier for stains and odour to absorb.

Sounds about right, when eating on my desk, I'm extremely careful not to spill or stain my chair, its dam dangerous, would totally rather stain my clothes instead of the chair.

Tbh, I have never before seen fabric "peel". Fabric have it's own sets of problem/issues, however peeling is probabily not one of it.
no leh, no leather part, there's this suede material on the side, but ya. i also wondering what he meant by "peeling" softweave haha.

Doubt there will be any peeling issue, more of maybe the threads coming loose?

so far only a person here stated he used the chair for 5 months and there is no peeling. he needs to use the chair for 2 years to see if there is any peeling.
Idk how can softweave material degrade la.. but it won't peel cos the material is fabric ma.

Maybe color will get dirtier because of high usage..? then perhaps when sharper object accidentally hook, will cause like the stitch come out or smth.

There are some products like 3m scotch guard that claim (market) to be able to repel water and stains. Not sure how well it works though.


fabric materials can wear and tear also.
Definately, everything wears and tears... But not as disgustingly as PU leather's peeling & flaking imho.

then no issue liao loh.

Actually taking care of the softweave quite easily la, just keep in mind that it will suck any liquid stuff, so prevent yourself to to spill or pour anything on it can liao

Other then that, nth much. Don't expose to smelly stuff too long loh.

Wear shirt when gaming, cos sweat tend to cause stuff to degrade faster.


Regarding the repel thingy, I feel these things would work, but not for long, meaning need to respray constantly.

Cos ah, imagine siting on it, confirm got friction, then the coat sure kena rub off easily. haha
