So, what is imitation leather?

Imitation leather, also known as faux leather, is a type of synthetic material designed to mimic the look and feel of genuine animal leather. It's typically made from a base fabric that is coated with polyurethane or PVC, which gives it a shiny, smooth surface that is water-resistant and easy to clean. Imitation leather is popular in fashion and home decor industries due to its affordability, durability, and versatility. It's commonly used for items such as jackets, shoes, handbags, furniture upholstery, and car interiors. As an ethical and sustainable alternative to traditional leather, imitation leather has gained popularity among consumers who seek environmentally-friendly options without sacrificing style and quality.
