How Can You Tell Genuine Leather?

Answer

Some faux leather products are made very well. They can pass easily for the real thing. You want to make sure you know the difference so you do not end up paying for more for less. Obviously the label can give you a clue but those can be falsified or removed. Faux leather will often look more perfect than genuine. Remember, genuine leather is made from the hide of an animal. It is hard to make it perfect and it will always have a distinct animal smell regardless of how it was treated in manufacturing.
