So, what is leatherette?

Leatherette is a synthetic material that mimics the look and feel of leather. It's commonly used in the fashion industry for shoes, handbags, and belts, but it can also be found in the food industry as an ingredient. Food-grade leatherette is typically made from a combination of natural and synthetic polymers and is used as a binding agent or stabilizer. It has a smooth, glossy texture and is often used to enhance the texture and mouthfeel of processed meats, sausages, and other meat products. With its ability to provide structure and improve overall product quality, leatherette is a versatile and useful ingredient in many food applications.
