Depending on the type of covering, there is synthetic leather for shoes, synthetic leather for luggage, or handbags, and the like according to the use.
Genuine leather is animal leather. the animal is killed and skinned before the body heat leaves the tissues. The freshly removed skin or hide is immediately cured with salt to remove water.
