This is a "new" product I've purchased from your outlet in Mosselbay end of December during our holiday. I am very disappointed in the half used product that was sold to me as "new".

Real leather: If you’ve smelled real leather before, you know it has a distinctive “leathery” smell - it has a natural, organic, skin scent that cannot be accurately manufactured.

Fake leather: There is no reliable way to fake the smell of real leather. Faux leather smells like plastic. If you smell a plasticky, chemical odour, you can bet it’s synthetic.

Real leather: Real leather is a natural material. Run your fingers across it, it doesn’t feel perfectly smooth. Press your finger into the leather - the surface will stretch and wrinkle a bit, like skin.

Fake leather: Run your fingers across the surface, it feels cold and unnaturally even. When pressing your finger into the surface, it doesn’t act like skin. Rather than stretching or wrinkling, the synthetic material simply depresses under your finger while still retaining its shape.



Did you know - leather shoes can be dyed?


HOW TO SPOT FAKE LEATHER: Lesson 2 Look closely
Real leather: Look at the surface of the leather. Its surface structure will not be completely uniform and will include blemishes and imperfections. Hints of imperfections are a good sign in leather.

Fake leather: The surface of synthetic leather is uniform. A very regular, even texture pattern is a sign that it’s a machine-made piece.



Did you know - The leather shoes can be dyed?
Lighter to darker colour work best. https://www.elsole.co.za/


HOW TO SPOT FAKE LEATHER: Lesson 1 Check the label
Real leather: If you see “100% real leather,” “full/top grain leather,” or “genuine leather,” you’re headed in the right direction.

Fake leather: If the label says, “man-made material,” it’s synthetic. If it doesn’t say anything at all about the material, it’s probably synthetic.
