Leather is an organic raw material derived from a replenishable source. It is very durable, flexible, and attractive when compared to synthetic material. The best property of leather is it's appearance. Good leather doesn’t deteriorate over time. Instead, it acquires a more rigid character. In the initial stage, investment in quality leather safety material may cost you more than on that of synthetic materials. However, due to its durability and flexibility, good leather products are totally worth that extra value in the long run.
There are three basic tests that you can perform to confirm the material is indeed leather. The first test is to smell the leather. Real leather smells different than synthetic leather. The second test is to feel the leather. Real leather feels soft whereas synthetic leather feels like plastic. Finally, the label will tell you what the ingredients are.
