How to distinguish genuine leather

Products made from leather such as shoes, handbags, leather clothes, etc., are always favored by consumers for their durability and fashionability. However, not everyone can distinguish real leather from faux leather. The following information may provide customers with some basic knowledge about genuine leather.

Faux leather is divided into two main types: simili and PU. With simili, you can easily identify it because this material is cheap, stiff, coated with a layer of polyester on the surface, so it is very shiny, often made for market stalls. PU, on the other hand, is more confusing because it is a high-quality faux leather material, soft and similar to real leather. However, PU is still a synthetic compound so it may peel off over time.

To identify genuine cowhide, many people have long used the burning method. Accordingly, faux leather will shrink similar to burning fur; while real leather burns slightly and has the acrid smell of organic compounds.

The second point is that on the surface of genuine leather, even after the tanning process, there are still pores visible under a regular magnifying glass.

Thirdly, real leather has natural elasticity so no matter how you fold or bend it, it will not deform or break like faux leather.

In addition, experienced leather users say they often choose products with simple designs, no fabric lining inside, rather rough surface, firm grip, and softness. Some products, if lined inside to suit the usage needs, the manufacturers intentionally leave the edges of the product, next to the seams, in a rough form instead of wrapping it.

However, to ensure 100% genuine products, consumers should visit the brand’s website, find the addresses of authorized distributors to purchase.

Crocodile leather is not like cowhide, sheepskin, it has only one characteristic pattern, crocodile leather has a variety of patterns and especially no repeating pattern because each crocodile has its own unique feature, no two are alike. It means that customers will not encounter any duplicate products when using crocodile leather products. Here are some characteristics to distinguish between real and fake crocodile leather.

1/ A common characteristic of these faux leather products is the distance between the fish fins vertically does not have patterns like our fingerprints. They simply create a distance between the lines.

2/ Another characteristic is that faux crocodile leather products cannot create bone fins.

3/ Another point is that faux crocodile leather products are very cheap, only about 500,000 VND, but that’s already super profitable when the original price is less than 50,000 VND. And the product does not feel the grandeur, the beauty of this river and lake killer.

Many customers who have never dealt with crocodile leather often think that crocodile leather does not burn and does not peel. This is a misconception.

All organic materials can be burned, human bones are the same, let alone crocodile leather. Crocodile leather is scaly if not tanned with good technology and if it is dead crocodile skin, when you scratch it, it will definitely flake or peel off. If comparing the cost of these poor quality crocodile leather products is only slightly higher than faux leather products, but in the long run, it may even be worse than fake products.

With some faux crocodile leather products pressed onto the surface of cowhide, you will not be able to peel it off. Plus, when using fire to test, it will not melt because after all, it is real cowhide.

People who make faux crocodile leather products when they sell they clearly note that this is faux, only some dishonest traders for profit take faux products and claim them as genuine to maximize profit, deceive some customers who are fond of cheap items but want quality goods.

So the advice for customers: Please find reputable stores and brands to be able to buy genuine products with the best quality.
