What is Genuine or Real Leather?


Real leather is crafted from animal skin, which in our case is cowhide, and must be tanned to avoid decomposition and become usable leather.

It can last a long time and generally gains a nice texture as it ages. If given proper care, an accessory made of this material can last between 10 and 20 years. Genuine leather is difficult to tear or puncture and is also much more breathable and humidity-resistant than most artificial leathers, which can begin to crack and warp in just a few years. And also, unlike synthetic leather, some genuine leathers have hypoallergenic features, which means they repel certain allergens.

The maintenance of leather is a little more complicated than that of customized pu leather handbags. You can clean leather with soap or water over using a damp cloth, but if it gets stained with oil or sweat you will need a special leather cleaner. Genuine leather may need a leather conditioner applied from time to time to keep it supple, or it will become stiff or brittle. This is because the natural oils in leather dry out over time.

What are the Benefits of Genuine Leather?

Is it really worth the additional money to acquire an authentic product over the numerous counterfeit options out there? Exactly what are the advantages of purchasing real products? Besides their remarkable sturdiness, here are a few of the reasons many people choose the real deal over more affordable faux choices:

- Genuine Leather is water-resistant

- It has breathability to it 

-Genuine Leather is much more durable as a material and will stand the test of time.

-The timeless nature of the look of real leather will never go out of style

-Genuine leather ages beautifully

Differences Between PU Leather and Real Leather

Now, let's list the most important features of each, and compare. 

1.Strength and durability

Being this the biggest difference between them, despite both types of leather have a very similar texture, the leather made with PU material bag is usually thinner, which means that it has less durability as it can be torn more easily and unlike real leather, the PU leather tends to crack and bend over the course of a few years.

2.Resistance to sunlight

On the other hand, PU leather is more resistant to the sun's rays than animal leather, which is why it is often used for couches, armchairs and for car and motorcycle seats.



While PU leather handbag has a greater variety of thicknesses, colors, and textures than traditional leather, and often has brighter finishes. It is also easier and more convenient to maintain, with cleaning requiring only the occasional wet cloth, while animal leather tends to dry out and always needs care to prevent deterioration.


Although PU leather is more breathable than other synthetic leathers such as the PVC, it is much less breathable than genuine leather.


While PU leather will always maintain the same feel and appearance, genuine leather tends to become softer and way more attractive over time.


One of the reasons, perhaps the main one, why people are choosing PU leather over genuine leather is that the first one is significantly cheaper. This is the most effective way to find out if the product you are buying is made of one material or another. Even so, if you are doubting, you only have to look at the composition that should appear on its label. However, if you're looking for a lasting experience that you can wear practically all the time, more comfortable and with a more classic look, real leather is your best option by far.  We have partnered with many online companies to provide discount codes.
