The first is the synthetic leather that is left over from the first layer of leather and is further processed artificially; the second is the first layer of poor quality, because the leather has too many flaws and scratches. , Can not be used directly, and the same artificially synthesized leather of poor quality
In this sense, the first layer of leather should be better than the second layer of leather. At present, the more common ones around us are The leathers of cattle, sheep, pigs and other animals. In addition, ostrich leather, crocodile leather, fox leather, and wolf leather are easier to identify, and cannot be made into two-layer leather.

Therefore, PU and composite two-layer leather account for a larger share in the leather handbag market, and the price/performance ratio is stronger.
