3 Most Common Types of Leathers

The leather is one of the widely used products in the world. Not all countries have an adequate amount of leather to manufacture the goods that are required, so countries are largely involved in import and export to meet their leather requirement for manufacturing leather goods. The leather is an animal extract product that has been used in different facets of life. Different types of animals contribute different types of leathers, and each type of leather has its own use. But irrespective of where they are extracted from and how they are put to use there are three major types as far as leather is concerned. So here we are going to see in detail about those three types of leathers:


Common types of leathers:

The highest quantum of leather is used for the production of furniture. Though there are tons of leather-based products, usage of leather is more in furniture, and thereby we are going to stick to furniture and see the types that are involved in furniture.

Three major types of leathers are used in furniture are as follows:

Aniline leather:

If there is one leather type that is used in its purest form, then it is Aniline leather, and that is why most people call it the naked leather. Though it is a high-quality leather, since it is used in its purest form there are a lot of natural pore and marks that will be present on the surface. So it found on an average that only 5% of the people prefer this leather when compared to the other leather types. As we said earlier, the leather goes to the manufacturing point and is manufactured without adding any artificial add-ons to make it look better than before. Though this leather is of high quality, the reason for being less preferred by people is because they are well protected like the other types of leather.

Semi-aniline leather:

It quite higher in terms of usage when compared to the Aniline type of leathers. They are not as pure as the aniline leather. There is a bit of mixture of the other products and add-ons to make it look different from its natural surface. It is simply the semi-conditioned form of Aniline types of leather. It is durable and stays for a longer period of time when compared to the previous type. But the drawback and the factor that people hate about this type of leather is that they look like every other common type of leather, despite being a high-quality extract.

Protected or pigmented leather:

Out of the three that we have on the list, this is the most durable form of leather, and it is the most commonly used type as well. They are too good for making durable furniture sets. The leather is protected with a lot of add-ons and other materials, and thereby it is the toughest of all types of leathers that simply fit for manufacturing any type of durable furniture and matches any type of furniture.


Best Ways to Identify Genuine Leather

Today a lot of products that we use aren’t genuine. We have fake and look-alikes for everything. So it has become a must that we know certain hacks to prevent ourselves from being hoodwinked by suck product forgeries. One of the most important products and the one that we use on a regular basis is leather. The leather is one product that most of us use. If the product is a fake one, then the life of the product is life, because most of us prefer leather not only because they are pretty but also for the life of the product.

Genuine Leather

Ways to identify fake leather:

In most cases when we talk about genuine leather, we are trying to exclude not only the ones that are fake but also the ones that are low-quality as well. So do not get into the misconception that we are trying to spot the fake ones. I am making it clear as to what the term ‘genuine’ is inclusive of. So here are some of the simple ways with which you can spot the difference between the genuine leathers and the ones that are otherwise.

Pull up effect:

Artificial leather doesn’t have a pull-up effect. The pull up effect is the quality of genuine leather. High-quality leather materials will stay long but will eventually change color. But when it comes to fake or low-quality leathers they don’t live long, and the period for which they live, they do not change colors. Leather that is rich oil and wax coating changes color because of the polishing materials that are present on it. Since this is absent in fake leather products, they stay in the same color and die eventually.


Don’t worry if your leather bag or wallet smells bad because that is how true leather smell. After all, they are animal products. But if the leather is fake, it doesn’t carry any smell. In fact, it smells good. So the worse it smells, the better is the quality of the leather.

Faux leather:

Faux Leather is also known by other names as synthetic leather or fake leather. Unlike the original products, they are cheap and do not carry the value that true leather products carry. In case if it is mentioned in the products that it is faux leather, you are buying a low-quality product, but you are aware of it. It is just a matter of affordability. You just have to be aware of the fact that there are faux products available in the market.

Painted or polyurethane layers:

The leather sheets that have polyurethane layers or the ones that are painted do not have the features of genuine leather, which means that genuine leather will be able to absorb the liquid and the other conditioning applicants that you use on it. But if the leather isn’t genuine they do not absorb the content as they are non-porous and that is the reason why they are not good absorbents.
