This isn’t real leather, but instead made from polyurethane. It became popular with manufacturers in the later noughties because of its cheaper manufacturing costs. Being a man-made material means production is quicker and less expensive than a natural farmed leather. If you’re on a budget it’s a great alternative, but vinyl fades and doesn’t wear very well. That’s why so many modern-day interiors just don’t last like they used to. So we’d steer clear of it if you’re looking for longevity.
