Real Leather vs. Faux Leather

The debate between real leather and faux leather has long been a hot topic. As a leading supplier of faux leather, Chieftain Fabrics is committed to providing alternatives that not only match the aesthetics of real leather but also support sustainability. 


Lionella Faux Leather

At Chieftain Fabrics, our Lionella range is a leading example of quality faux leather. Boasting a 15% PU content, Lionella achieves a soft leather look and feel, making it our closest alternative to real leather. The engineering of Lionella ensures that it not only matches the aesthetics but also the durability of natural leather. It is also resistant to wear and tear, making it suitable for high-traffic environments.

The Sustainability Factor

One of the most significant differences between real and faux leather is their environmental impact. Real leather is a natural material derived from animal skin, a process that is not only unkind to animals but also leaves a lasting mark on our environment. The tanning process, chemicals used, and the significant land and water resources involved in raising animals for leather production contribute to pollution and deforestation.

In contrast, faux leather is crafted with sustainability in mind. Our commitment to eco-friendly alternatives is reflected in Lionella and our other ranges, providing a guilt-free choice for those seeking both style and environmental responsibility.
