Faux Leather refers to synthetic leather or other leather-like products that are actually artificially synthesized from basic chemical raw materials. Faux Leather is also called imitation leather or rubber, which is a general term for man-made materials such as PVC and PU. It is made on a woven fabric base or a non-woven fabric base by foaming or laminating various formulas such as PVC and PU. It can be made according to different strength, abrasion resistance, cold resistance and color, gloss, pattern Patterns and other requirements are processed and made. It has the characteristics of a wide variety of colors, good waterproof performance, neat edges, high utilization rate and relatively low price compared to leather. However, most of Faux Leather cannot reach the effect of leather in its feel and elasticity. Longitudinal section, you can see fine air bubbles, cloth base or surface film and dry man-made fibers.
