Surprisingly unknown! ? Difference between synthetic leather and genuine leather

Genuine leather, synthetic leather... What is the difference?

Do you know their characteristics?

First of all, regarding genuine leather, it literally means “genuine leather”. There are cows, horses, pigs, and sheep. Naturally, all of the items used in anshare are genuine leather.

Synthetic leather, on the other hand, does not contain any animal skins. It is artificially made, and is mainly produced by mixing urethane and vinyl chloride with fabric.

The big difference between the two can be summed up in the degree of"deterioration".

Since genuine leather is a natural product, it does not deteriorate easily, and you can enjoy the change over time. The color gets darker each time you use it, and if you take care of it, you can use it for more than 10 years .

On the other hand, synthetic leather does not require maintenance, but it deteriorates quickly and will fall apart in 2 to 3 years. However, it has the advantage of being cheaper than genuine leather.

If you feel that genuine leather products are expensive compared to synthetic leather, you will be convinced that there is a difference in price if you understand the difference.
