Hello everybody!
I'm asking you a big favour for a friend of mine who asked me the translation of the above words. Unfortunately it's not my language pair.
Can you help me please?
Thanks

umela kozusina/umely semis
Explanation:
I am sure about the first translation - 'umela kozusina' but not so about the second.
'Suede' is a leather with a feathery finish. I believe it is translated into Slovak as 'nubukova koza' or 'nubuk'. But its real translation - is 'semis' or 'semisova koza'.
We do hear about 'umely semis' but not about 'umela nubukova koza'.

Fake suede - 'semis'.

I found the proper translation for real suede into Slovak, so fake suede is - 'semis'!

Apologies: fake suede = 'umely semis' as in the answer above.
