How to tell if ANYTHING is real leather or not
All you've got to do is press down on the surface with 1 finger. Press down on your own skin. See all the little miniscule folds that form when you press down on it? Go do the same to your leather jacket, or your cat. Any real hide does that. Vinyl, etc. does not. The entire surface bends in without those little folds forming. Now we can close the thread out for good.
