GENUINE LEATHER V. FAUX LEATHER- WHICH DO YOU PREFER?
genuine leather or faux leather? i actually like both but if given a preference, ie. shoes and/or hand bags, i prefer genuine leather. what is your preference? xoxo.
Real leather is much preferable to faux anytime. It feels better, smells better, wears better and with proper care will out last many other materials. I have a leather bag that is ancient and still looks like new. I have purchased faux leather bags that only last a short time before they tear or peel.
They skin these animals alive. The articles will tell you thAt USA gets most of its hides and fur from China
please google China skins animals alive in fur farming. Fur farming is the removal of fur to get the hide for tanning.
Please don’t buy real leather. Research and you will never wear it again.
Please do not use excuse that you not buying it will not stop this. Yes it will. If there is No Demand for Product then these animals will not die a horrific death. It starts with You/ one person
I have been in rescue 17 yrs I know this to be true. Google
I hate the thought of wearing an animal’s skin and we don’t know anymore what animal it is. There are dogs being killed for their skin and fur in China where lots of leather comes from. Even Italian leather is leather originally from China but made into fashion there.
I see the point because my shoes and handbags of faux leather are garbage very quickly and peel and are uncomfortable. I have limited my purchasing of leather in clothes because we don’t need leather jackets, skirts or pants. Actually nothing leather to survive. But its money in the garbage to buy faux leather and its very expensive too. I wear my leather bags and footwear until they are just worn out. I just resoled a pair of leather boots and polished them and they are going strong after 7 years. I have never outworn a leather bag unless I gave it away as a gift to a friend or family who loved a bag I had. The only non leather bag that had lasted 10 years was a Sharif. My fault it tore because I overstuffed it. He seems to have mastered the best materials in non leather bags. My purchase of a faux leather bag wad a Madden one and it was gorgeous. Started peeling in a few months with normal wear. There are nice fabric type canvas bags too that I purchased and hold up better than faux leather. I also quit buying down as the process of getting the feathers is beyond cruel. Its sickening. Fiberfill is actually healthier and cruelty free.
If I were a vegan I would wear only man-made. But I believe in not wasting any part of animal. I eat meat, wear their skins, sleep on their feathers and I am grateful to accept this gift from nature. I do not advocate saving lives of only cute and furry animals. And I am very much against unnecessary cruelty to any living thing.
As an afterthought – doesn’t production of man-made faux materials create polution that affects not only humans and animals… but the whole planet and its natural balance?
Real leather for sure for durability. I have a friend who has a faux leather jacket that looks like leather and she wore constantly. She was so disappointed when it started to peel over the years. I have a faux sleeved jacket though which is lovely. Many old faux leather bags I’ve had to toss for peeling after a few years. I try to buy leather handbags, but sometimes I can’t resist the faux leather. I too really like faux fur. Feels and looks so real. Love the smell of leather and that I’ve spent my $$ wisely.
Faux leather, it is so well done now. You don’t have to spend a fortune to clean it and mostly because the leather industry is notorius for its cruelty to animals.
Lamb leather always:heart:
Real leather when I wea it don’t have many peices.
No question, genuine leather.If cared for properly will last a lifetime.Also smells and feels good to touch.Faux has nasty chemical smell and is way overpriced for something that looks cheap and doesn’t last.
sorry for typos my phone changed words before I notice
Even European Countries are sending animals to Asia to be killed for their hide and fur. The way they fool you in thinking you are not buying leather from China, South Korea, etc, is cause if the Animal Originated or born in a Western country, then the tag will NOT SAY MADE in ASIAN countries. Leather Products are in Humane. Leather and Fur is Killing of innocent animals. You do not need leather to live. Please pledge to not be part of animal cruelty. If the demand for leather goes away, the demand for the animals goes away
Faux, Cause I have been in animal rescue for over 17 yrs. Most leather is from Asian zcountry. The Animals are skinned alive and in front of the animals waiting to be skinned.
If you have seen what I have you will not wear real leather or fur. Faux is the Humane way. Of course real leather is pretty but I am not going to be a reason some animal died.
Many people have told me this " I will wear leather, cause my not wearing it, is not going to stop the killing". One lady said one person can not change things. Did is not true. Change happens because 1 person stop being part of the problem.
Also, did you know that the Asian countries are skinning dogs and cats alive and substituting the skin/hide in place of other leathers. They are doing same with their fur.
Think about crate on top of crate of dogs, cats, fox, raccoon, minx, rabbits, and others crowed into the crates, to where they can’t even move or turn around. They sit and poop and pee onto the animals in the crate below them. They are starved and go without water all While They Watch The men skinning a steaming animal alive right in front of them.
Please do not buy leather, fur etc.
I only want to purchase real leather because who wants to pay a lot of money for just a lot of plastic or vinyl there are people who don’t care but do not advertise something as leather w
I don’t have any faux leather even on shoes.
