Leather Types For Leather Jackets Blog
All of our leather products are made from genuine real leather, be it Cowhide, Lambskin, Goatskin or Sheepskin. Leather is a luxury item unlike faux leather, PVC and synthetics. Real leather is breathable, waterproof and windproof and they last a lifetime if looked after accordingly. Non leather imitations such as faux, pleather and other synthetics can provide a very uncomfortable experience which can feel suffocating, sticky and sweaty due to the materials being non breathable. It can also limit the length of time it can be worn.
