July 29, 2009 - PRLog -- Simply speaking, we apply some water on the the surface of genuine leather. The water will be absorbed in genuine leather and the surface will dry out in no time. If we do the same to leatherette, the water spot won’t dry out easily on it. By doing so, we can roughly distinguish them in the first place. If you scratch the genuine leather with your finger nails, the scratch will get lightened or disappear with your rubbing. However, the scratch on the leatherette won’t go away easily even with persistent rubbing.

You may burn a little piece of the material. If you burn the genuine leather, the burning smells like the burning of our hair. The ash left behind is fragile crumb. But if you burn the leatherette, you will see the leatherette shrink quickly and it smells like the burning of ordinary plastic. The leftover becomes sticky and when it cools down, it turns into hard and stiff agglomerate.

In the meantime, as we may purchase shoes, leather belt, men’s belts, women’s belts, garment or glove made of pig leather or pig lining(e.g. from ), it is useful and necessary to learn some basic skill to distinguish the pig leather from others. The pore of the pig leather is round and large. Every 3 pores will form as a team, in the form of a triangle. The face of pig leather is a little rugged, even after polishing or some other kind of treatment. It is usually more rugged than cow leather.
