Leather/faux leather

I'm looking for a softer/ maybe slightly fuzzy leather, or at least no shiney. I need black and royal blue. I'm trying to find something that is thin enough for a sewing machine to go thru.. Is there a term for this kind of fabric? Also interested in a faux version if its similar but cheaper..

First time working with a leather garment, need it for pants/ shirt

Ultasuede (brand name for faux suede) isn't that much cheaper than real leather, but for those specific garments it'll be more comfortable to wear.
Nothing is impossible, but some things are very expensive.
My Etsy shop: http://www.etsy.com/shop/penlowe I make non-fitted custom things to ship within the continental US. I only do fitted garments for those whom I can meet in person.
