1, Leather

The leather has good breathability, comfort, heat absorption and heat dissipation, and it is warm in winter and cool in summer. The leather sofa has a smooth, bright, soft, plump, elastic and textured surface. At present, leather sofas are mostly made of cowhide fabrics, of which the top layer and the second layer are mainly used.

The first layer of leather is directly processed from animal skin, and can be divided into three categories: full green skin, semi-green skin and embossed skin. All green skins are fine products, mostly used in high-end sofas. Semi-green skin, the quality of the skin is slightly lower than that of the whole green skin, but the supply is sufficient and the price is reasonable. It is the preferred material for the sofa industry. The embossed leather skin has a lower grade, a slightly harder texture, a lower hand and breathability, and is easier to clean.

The second layer of leather is a looser lower layer of dermal fibrous tissue, which is processed by spraying the facing material or coating with PVC and PU film. The second layer of leather is generally used on the back of the sofa or on the outside of the armrest, that is, the area that the human skin does not touch.

The regenerated leather is processed by pulverizing the dermis and adding chemical materials such as resin and rubber. Recycled skin is cheap, but its strength is poor, and it is often used in sofa products with lower prices.
