What is PU Leather?
PU leather short for polyurethane leather is getting more and more popular. Polyurethane is a widely used in the construction and engineering industry. It is an ultra durable, flexible and long lasting polymere.
Why do we use PU Leather?
PU leather is actually in its real form 100% vegan because it is a basically a blend of different artificial chemicals.
Since polyurethane has been used as a special coating for heavy duty and industrial purposes it is very durable. It lasts a very long time and usually does not crack or wear down easily. The overall durability and quality is quite good and actually way better compared to most faux leather alternatives. But that is what it is originally made for – being very tough and long lasting.
