Nowadays, more and more ladies love leather shoulder bags. Because there is no other texture can compare with it, and leather also has many kinds with different quality, which make ladies fall in with them. For example, in leather, slick-surfaced leather is often used, because its tension strengthen is good, it is able to bear or endure dirty, friction and has good air permeability. About nubuck, it not only has elegant surface, and good air permeability, but it still has weak points that is easy to be dirty and not good to take care, especially in bad environment, it is very easy to absorb dust, and after touched water, it also will fall over. And there is another leather called modified leather, which is made up by processing daub on the surface of leather, and it can press with different grains.
While, there are many fake leather mixed with real leather in market, we should open our eyes to discern leather. Below I will introduce several common ways to you when you buy a leather shoulder bag or handbag.
No. 1 Touch Feeling
When you touch the handbag’s surface, it is smooth (except grain leather), soft, plump and stretchy, thus it is real leather.
No. 2 Look
Look is mainly used to identify leather’s kind and grain leather’s stand or fall, to watch the surface of leather has obvious pores and lines, while fake leather is also imitated pores, but its pores are not realistic and clear. Moreover the reverse side of fake leather is a layer of fabric as baseboard, and this kind of baseboard is used to increase its tension strength, which is not existing in leather bags. Hence this is the simplest and most practical way to identify leather handbags.
No. 3 Odour
A good-quality leather generally has no peculiar odour, and if only it is leather, it will have leather odour. If there is acrid odour, it may be some chemical raw material is exceeding standard to use in wording process.
No. 4 Light
After lighted, leather’s odour is same as fired hairs, and won’t be lump, use fingers to pinch it can be powder. While, the fake leather, after lighted, will produce acrid odour, and form to lump.
