Vinyl and Leather Upholstery Repair

The Difference Between Vinyl & Leather

Vinyl and leather give a similar look and feel to a surface. Typically, you can tell the difference between genuine leather by the grain of the material. Leather doesn’t have a distinct pattern, but vinyl, or faux leather may have a repeating pattern indicating that is was man-made.

Benefits to Leather

Leather became a popular material for furniture, material goods such as bags and shoes, and car upholstery because of its durability, resistance to scratches and luxurious appearance. Since no two leather items can be exactly the same there is a unique quality about a real leather object. With time, leather will become softer and can last much longer than vinyl.

Benefits to Vinyl

Genuine leather is quite expensive compared to other materials. Vinyl can give the same sort of look at a more affordable price point. It is much easier to mass produce and with proper care can last for years. Leather will have pores or imperfections that show through, because of the marks of the animal they come from, but vinyl can be smooth and perfect.
