How to identify genuine leather handbags?
1. Is there any way to identify whether it is genuine leather?
Touch: Touch the leather surface with your hand. If it feels soft, smooth, plump and shiny, it is genuine leather. Generally, the surface of PU and PVC is astringent and rigid.
Look: the surface of the leather has clear pores and patterns, yellow leather has more uniform fine pores, and yak leather has thicker and sparse pores.
Smell: Leather materials have a faint leather odor, while artificial leather has a pungent plastic odor.
Pulling: Use nails to pick up the skin. If it recovers quickly and there are no traces, it is genuine leather, otherwise it is artificial leather.
2. What is the difference between the first layer of skin and the second layer of skin?
The first layer of leather is the first layer of animal skin. It has the advantages of very good elasticity, strength and process plasticity. It is currently the preferred material for high-end leather handbag brands; the second layer of leather can be divided into two types. The first type is synthetic leather with the remaining waste leather used in the first layer of leather, and then the synthetic leather after artificial deep processing; the second type is the first layer of poor quality, because the leather surface has too many flaws and scratches to be directly In this sense, the first layer of leather should be better than the second layer of leather that is of poor quality after artificial synthesis. At present, the skins of cows, sheep, pigs and other animals are more common around us. In addition, ostrich skins, crocodile skins, fox skins, and wolf skins are easier to identify and cannot be made into two-layer skins. However, because of the high cost of the top layer leather, the plasticity is not as strong as PU and composite leather, so now PU and composite two-layer leather account for a larger proportion of the leather handbag market, and the cost performance is also stronger.
3. How to choose genuine leather handbags?
The first point is the workmanship: the workmanship should be optimistic about the details, the color of the bag should be coordinated with the surface of the bag, the footing should be fine, and the strap should be checked for stitches, cracks, etc., to see if the strap is strong and durable, etc. And other details.
The second point is to look at the style: choosing the brand of genuine leather handbags. Of course, the last point is to choose the style that suits you. When will the bag appear? Does the bag color match the clothes? Is the style of the bag novel and eye-catching enough? These all require us to carefully consider.
