The option most voted like false skin was the second image that for its sheen was making seem that out of finished plasticized.

How can you appreciate, the imitation leather tries to imitate not only the tact of the skin but also its surface. If you pay attention to this one you will notice how it has puntitos. this they owe to the printer that is not capable of giving him more detail.

Skin of Lacquer

This skin cost enough of identifying our followers. We explain a little the most well-known characteristics to you:

In these images we can appreciate that the plastic recovering is of a very bad quality. The modern lacquers have plastic recovering.

Another way of knowing the first one if a lacquer is really good is for its reverse. When we turn round him we appreciate that it is a synthetic cloth. And if we can already cut it then you will be able to imagine that the cloth shows the finished synthetic one while the skin shows us its natural filaments of the skin.

Skin of Serraje

And finally and not for it less important the serraje. This was the one that more found it hard to us to foresee us … and we will say to you porqué.

The characteristics are exceptionally similar to simple sight, but at the time of the truth the leather is more resistant and lasting, this is a reality.

To observe how the skin acts when it is cut. It is really fragile and to the tact it leaves a sensation of greasy plastic. It is a material that although it is not difficult to supplant, does not have anything that to face the genuine leather.
