Leather Gel has leather in the face of the fabric, and has significantly better wear and hydrolysis than most artificial leathers. This material exceeds 130,000 double rubs and the hydrolysis testing is over 5 years. With its current construction and backing this material is breathable. Leather Gel has the feel of a high-end leather but at an affordable price. It is also better for the consumer's health by eliminating DMF. Leather Gel is created by taking wet blue scraps from tannery hides and melting it down to a gel. Then the gel is combined with liquid PU and is set into the face of the fabric and coated at the base fabric. The finished hide is then sent back to the tannery to tumble with the hides, which creates the softness and wrinkle of leather.
