Leather will be divided into 4 types based on its quality and price. Cost from lowest to highest, that is bonded leather, patent leather, split leather and top-grain leather. As for leatherette, it's made by covering a fabric base with a soft plastic layer ( PU or PVC ). The principal differences between the real and fake leather are two aspects: Pores at back and smell after burning.
