No, not at all!

"It's not leather.... It's a vinyle that has leather fibers glued to the underside."

Calling this product 'leather' is "outright deception."


 It is made by applying latex on the back of vinyle and spraying the leather powder from scrap leather. The vinyle surface is stamped to give it a leather-like texture. The leather powder layer is very thin and applied only on the backing fabric, in actuality you are sitting on vinyle not on leather. Many people mistakenly believe that bonded leather is a chemical mixture with leather and vinyl. It is not. You can easily tear off the leather layer.


Bonded Leather manufacturers don't ussually give warranty. 

And a lot of cases, it last only 2 to 3 years.

As a leather specialist we do not recommend this product
