Faux / Synthetic / Artificial Leather

Commonly sold by calling it leather, Faux is not original leather while it’s made from different materials i.e not made from animal hide and made it look like leather. It doesn’t last you even a year. To differentiate, Firstly, It doesn’t smell like leather! Secondly, It has a perfect grainy pattern. Thirdly, It doesn’t develop the same luster and patina over time as leather!

Bonded Leather

Bonded Leather is made from leftover leather scrap and fibers mixed with polyurethane binders and rolled as leather onto a paper backing. It gets torn easily and is not repairable.

Genuine Leather

Genuine Leather doesn’t mean that a product is made of high quality leather, it means that it’s the lowest quality of leather. To define it better, you can call it “At least, the product is made of genuine leather” It doesn’t last as long as high quality leather and is usually used in products available in low priced range shops and stores.

Top Grain Leather

Top Grain leather is middle-grade quality leather; it is mostly used in small leather products. It is made by breaking full-grain leather and by sanding off any imperfection from it and placing a fake grain on it.

Full Grain Leather

Full-grain leather is made of a complete grain of a hide that comprises imperfections and real toughness. It usually is made for heavyweight leather products but can also be used to make bags and belts and other leather products if handled with great care. It’s the best and top quality of leather and brings its own patina and gets beautiful as you use it. It’s one of those expensive leathers.

Vegetable Tan Leather

It’s not just the leather type but it’s the process with which the animal hide was preserved when the animal was slaughtered till the time, hide is made into usable leather. Although there are many ways to preserve and process the cow hide, vegetable tanning is the only all-natural way. This process lets the leather age in the most beautiful way amongst rest. This type of leather gets rich in color and gets a beautiful patina with use. It’s the most expensive to buy!
