Alcantara, the Italian-made fabric Microsoft uses on some Surface accessories and the Surface Laptop, is soft and luxurious. (If you're not familiar with Alcantara, read, "Everything you need to know about Alcantara".)
But people either seem to love it or, well … not love it. That's understandable, and it's not for everybody. There's a discussion going on in our forums right now on that very subject.
Personally, I am not a huge Alcantara fan. But I still use it on my Surface Pro Signature Type Cover, because I like it better than the rubbery-feeling plastic on the regular version.
What about you? Do you use any Surface accessories with Alcantara? Do you have strong feelings either way? Hit the link below and let us know.
