Imitation leather - simply practical for furniture

Not only animal-friendly restaurants prefer vegan leather. Textile leather is often indistinguishable from genuine leather at first glance. Typically, imitation leather has a textile backing coated with plastic, while real leather often displays a more irregular grain pattern. In terms of durability and longevity, artificial leather matches the qualities of real leather. Given its varied properties, it's especially suited for crafting upholstered furniture, offering a vast array of designs and uses. With its appealing appearance, authentic textures, and a range of both trendy and classic colors, it allows for the design of unique seating and sleeping furnishings tailored to diverse settings.

Durable and easy to care for

The material is not only soft to the touch but also resistant to flammable sources, making it a prime choice for durable upholstery in public spaces. After all, furnishings in establishments like hotels face considerable daily wear and tear, and it's crucial they stand up to this challenge. Moreover, imitation leather is both uncomplicated and lightweight. It's less burdensome than natural leather, more user-friendly, and boasts a delightful tactile quality. Not to mention, it's abrasion-resistant and a breeze to maintain. For cleaning, simply wipe down with a damp cloth. A touch of soap or a disinfectant cleaner can also be used. Plus, producing imitation leather is ecologically sound and ensures no harm to animals.

Quality features of high-quality textile leather

The material differences can be significant, especially among various imitation leather types. High-quality imitation leather can be identified by its certifications and certain quality characteristics. Tear resistance fortifies the material against premature wear, enhancing its durability. This is why superior imitations are consistently crafted from robust and high-quality materials. Thanks to adequate elasticity, the material retains its flexibility, safeguarding upholstery covers from potential rips. This quality can also be gauged by the material's feel; the finest textile leather is never rigid and closely resembles the texture of genuine leather. Optimal artificial leather is either odorless or might subtly replicate the scent of genuine leather. Furthermore, it doesn't produce noise when someone sits or rises. Lightfastness is another crucial attribute; premium leather imitations seldom fade, preserving their initial color over extended periods.
