No "real leather"
Also known as by-cast or PU-leather. Very succesfull mid 1990's until 2005. High glossy, smooth surface. According to the German RAL standard for leather, this product cannot be sold as real leather.
Also knwon as Amazone, Tasan or Grizzly leather. According to the German RAL standard for leather, this product cannot be sold as real leather. The microfibre is glued on a split leather. This type of product can be maintained with Puratex® products for microfibre.
Recently we have found many new microfibres with leather fibres glued onto the backside. We cannot imagine what the benefits are. Without these leather fibres, the microfibre itself would have been a great product alreday. We advice our partners in industry and trade, to sell these type of products as a textile / fabric. Leather would not be appropriate. The picture shows a microscope picture of the back. This is no leather.
