If you are not sure whether to choose real leather or faux leather, then, you’ve come to the right post, because I’m going to reveal to you what are the advantages of each one and their drawbacks as well.
So, you are lost! You don’t know what to choose, leather or faux leather? Well, to tell you the truth, nowadays, there isn’t a huge difference!
In the last twenty-five years, I worked with many kinds of leather, real and faux, and I came to know a lot about these fabrics, and from my experience, faux leather has come a very long way, whereas really leather is merely still the same!
And if you don’t know what to choose, let me tell you that faux leather is nowadays as resistant and as comfortable as real leather, in fact, if you suffer from allergies or respiratory medical conditions, then, from my experience, faux leather is the thing to choose.
And if you’d like to know about the advantages of real leather, let me give you this small list:
- It’s lightweight
- It’s comfortable
- It’s very resistant
- And it’s very flexible
Now, let’s talk about faux leather, its advantages:
- It’s lightweight
- It’s very comfortable
- It’s very resistant to humidity, UV rays and other elements
- And it’s also very flexible!
You see now that both leather and faux leather have got nearly the same advantages, however, there is one huge difference: the price!
The prices of real leather has skyrocketed these years, in fact, I’ve stopped working with this fabric because it’s cost prohibitive and when you try to explain to customers that as artisans, we don’t control the prices, none of them are going to believe you and they just think that you are trying to scam them!
However, faux leather has gone a very long way from what it used to be. It used to be seen as a low quality fabric, but it has improved a lot and now, there are so many quality faux leather fabrics that most people are going to find it very difficult to tell whether they are real or faux!
That’s everything you need to know about leather and faux leather, both have got amazing advantages, but if you are looking for an affordable price, a good conscious, knowing that no animal was harmed for you to wear a jacket or to enjoy a piece of upholstery furniture, then, you should definitely choose faux leather.
