How to identify leather and faux leather sofas?
Aug 21, 2018

As a member of the sofa family, leather sofas are loved by people for their elegance, elegance and durability. They can be used to decorate the living room and bedroom.

The leather sofa is divided into leather and imitation leather. The leather is made of natural leather, mainly cowhide and pigskin; the imitation leather is artificial. The performance and price difference between the two are large, so pay attention to distinguish when purchasing.

1: Look at the material

Leather sofas are actually a general term. Pigskin, horse skin, suede and cowhide can be used as sofa materials. You must figure out what leather is used. Among them, cowhide leather is soft, thick and the best quality. The sofa is generally made of buffalo leather. The leather is thick and the price is affordable. Even better is the A-grade top layer of yellow cowhide. The skin texture of horse skin and suede is similar to that of cowhide, but the surface is green and slack. It takes a long time to peel off easily and is not durable, so the price is cheap.


2: Look at the wooden frame

Look at the sofa skeleton is strong, which is related to the life and quality of the sofa. The specific method is to lift one end of the three-person sofa. Note that when the lifting part is separated by 10 cm, the leg of the other head is off the ground, and only the other side is also off the ground, and the inspection is passed.


3: Distinguish the smell

The dermis has an astringent taste of the animal; while the fake skin is relatively more stimulating to the leather.


4: Look at the filler

The filler mainly refers to a sponge, and the sponge is classified into three types according to elasticity: high elasticity, high elasticity, super softness and medium impact. The specific method is to press the handrail and backrest of the sofa by hand. If the presence of the wooden frame can be clearly felt, it proves that the filling density of the sofa is not high and the elasticity is not good enough. The sofa frame that is easily pressed can also accelerate the wear of the sofa jacket and reduce the service life of the sofa.


5: Look at the corners

In order to reduce the cost, some leather sofas use high-quality leather on the top of the sofa, while the back or corners are doped with some inferior leather.
