https://www.bozeleather.com/

As we know, synthetic leather and genuine leather is different, also there is big difference between price and cost. But how do we identify these two kinds of leather? Let see below tips!

 

Using Water

The water absorption of genuine leather and artificial leather is different, so we can use water to drop it on the leather to observe their water absorption. Kindly waiting about 2 minutes. Genuine leather has more pores, so the water absorption is better than synthetic leather. So if water is absorbed that refer to genuine leather, otherwise is synthetic leather.

 

Smelling

Genuine leather is generally made of animal skins. Animals have a special smell, which can still be smelled even after processing. And synthetic leather has a chemical smell or a strong plastic smell. So we can use smelling to tell the difference.

 

Touching

Genuine leather is elastic, there is natural folds and texture is not uniform when pressed, which it feels very soft.

Synthetic leather is tough, and the surface is very smooth, some will feel plastic. Also has poor resilience, which the rebound will be slower after pressing down. At the same time, you can see the pressed texture is very uniform, and the indentation thickness is similar.

 

Surface

Since genuine leather is made of animal skin, like our skin, there are many pores on it. These pores are in different size and not very uniform. Therefore, the pores of the leather products produced are irregular, and the thickness may be uneven.

Synthetic leather is generally produced by artificial intelligence, so the patterns or lines on it are relatively regular, and the thickness is about the same.

 

Flame-treated

Using a lighter to burn along the edge of leather. Generally, when genuine leather is burned, it will emit the hair smell. On the other hand, synthetic leather emits a pungent plastic smell, which is very unpleasant.
