Increasingly, we began to meet a genuine, reports Rus.Media. Many do not immediately understand what was going on. Mind the prefix “eco”. The impression that we are talking about some organic skin.

Maybe the animals from which it is made, grazed exclusively safe and unpolluted areas. Maybe when it is processed not used no artificial materials. Maybe it is not harmful for the atmosphere.

As you can see, a lot of assumptions. But they are all about. As a genuine absolutely no relation to natural leather. It is completely artificially created material. Therefore, when there is a desire to buy shoes, it is useful to know the tissue is different from skin. Especially if the natural material is key.


Genuine leather is specially processed skin of an animal. First it is soaked to get rid of dirt, grease, salt. Then the skins are removed the hair and epidermis. Then, the process of tanning and coloring.

Eco-leather is applied to woven base polyurethane film. Since the latter operation is completely safe, all the material is environmental. As the basis used cotton fabric.


Both materials are quite comfortable to use, since have the ability to pass air and moisture. The skin is the inherent natural origin. Faux leather and similar properties provided the cotton backing and the porous material of the top.

However, the skin is more loyal to different damage arising in the process of wearing shoes. For example, unexpected scratches and eliminate defects with the help of special tools. In eco-leather to eliminate them is almost impossible because the cuts are beginning to look like thread. But if damaged, is very difficult to glue such material.

Temperature mode

The first and the second material are resistant to temperature changes. They clearly show themselves in a hard frost: not dubeet, their surface will not crack or deflates.

Elasticity and strength

The skin is clearly the leader. Because it is able to not just take the form of human feet, which increases comfort during use of footwear. She, if allowed to stand and to rest, returns to its original state. Of course, like the storefront, she will not, however, the changes you will notice, getting shoes that were worn last season.

Besides, genuine leather is more durable. After all, the animal skin is not cotton liner with polyurethane coating.

Faux leather is soft enough. High permeability (higher than real leather) allows for a long time retain the original shape of the Shoe.

Smell and Allergy

The leather has a distinctive smell. That is the smell of many are able to distinguish this material. However, it can provoke an allergic reaction.

Faux leather is absolutely hypoallergenic because it does not stand out.

Output form

Faux leather is more easy to manufacture. This is due to its perfectly smooth surface and sizes, limited only by the capabilities of the manufacturer.

And the leather has the shape that gave her nature. Its size is limited by the parameters of the animals.

In addition, on the surface there are traces of his life. All mechanical injuries, wounds, injuries, performance on the body clearly visible.


Naturally, this parameter is difficult to determine what material used in the manufacture of shoes. However, you can try.

For example, bright acid tones are very difficult to obtain in natural leather. Synthetic materials paint to go a lot better, so the end result is a more full-bodied.

It is obvious that at a glance very difficult to distinguish genuine leather from faux leather. And the touch is very problematic, since both materials heat up upon touch.

Therefore, you should carefully study the sections. Woven base may be only a faux leather.

Don’t be fooled. Faux leather does not carry anything bad, however unpleasant, if it is issued for natural.
