PU leather, sometimes described as split leather) is a material made with a split leather backing covered with a layer of polyurethane hence the term “PU leather” that is applied to the surface and then embossed. PU leather  is used on furniture and in apparel. PU leather is cheaper to make and has a nice-looking finish, but is not as durable, strong nor thick as full-grain leather. If the PU leather is PU all the way through, or a thick layer of PU on canvas, then it’s probably fine for upholstery and wallets but no good for jackets and shoe uppers. If the PU leather  is a thin film of PU over leather, then some films are breathable and others not. In terms of performance, polyurethane leather is waterproof, can be dry-cleaned, is soft and supple and much lighter than real leather. And although it tears more easily than genuine leather, this PU leather  form does not crack or fade under sunlight, making it particularly ideal for automobiles, but also for clothing where it is used to create spandex and to add buoyancy to competitive swimsuits. Other benefits of PU leather  include its environmental credentials. As a biobased material, genuine leather’s main environmental benefit is its biodegradability. However, this has to be considered against the background of the material’s production process. Traditionally, leather production and the tanning process use several toxic chemicals, which produce pollution in our interior and exterior environments. Tanneries themselves also release polluting chemicals including ammonia and chromium in the form of liquid and solid waste. This results in considerable water pollution, particularly in developing countries. By contrast, innovative manufacturing techniques make PU  leather cleaner to make, with less natural resource use and free of animal cruelty. The majority of PU  leather products are foams, such as those used inside furniture, refrigerator walls or for thermal insulation. It is also used for door frames and column.

PU leather, sometimes described as split leather) is a material made with a split leather backing covered with a layer of polyurethane hence the term “PU leather” that is applied to the surface and then embossed. PU Leather is synthetic leather that is manufactured by humans and is not derived from animal skin. Synthetic leather is used on furniture and in apparel.

The majority of synthetic leather products are foams, such as those used inside furniture, refrigerator walls or for thermal insulation. It is also used for door frames and column. Vinyl synthetic leather has been produced in the United States since the 1940s, initially for products such as shoes, automobile interiors and upholstery. Both polyurethane and vinyl synthetic leathers are used in making clothing, upholstery, and product covers, but each is better for certain applications than others. PU leather is softer, more flexible, and breathable, so it’s more commonly used for making high-wear products, like clothing and upholstery (surfaces that come into direct contact with skin). Vinyl synthetic leather is not as breathable as PU, but this is often ideal for products that need to repel moisture such as book bindings or cases for electronic devices.
