How to tell if leather is genuine and real
Just because a jacket sold at a local retail store looks like it’s made of leather doesn’t necessarily mean that it is. Some companies sell jackets, shirts, pants and fashion accessories that are made of fake leather. Also known as faux leather, it’s typically made of a synthetic man-made material that mimics the appearance of leather. But if you’ve ever worn or felt faux leather before, you probably know that it pales in comparison to the real thing. Nonetheless, many people struggle to differentiate the two, especially if they are unfamiliar with faux leather. So, how do you tell if a leather is genuine and real?
The moisture test
One of the easiest ways to tell if leather is genuine is to place a single drop of water on it. Known as the moisture test, this is intended to check and see if the leather absorbs or repels the water droplet. Assuming the leather is real and genuine, it should absorb the water droplet. Although you can’t see it, leather contains thousands of small pores — like wood — that absorb or release moisture depending on the surrounding environment. When directly exposed to moisture, it will absorb it into these pores. Therefore, you can usually tell if leather is real or fake by placing a single droplet of water on it. If it’s real, the water will quickly absorb into the leather. If it’s fake, the water droplet will repel and roll off the leather.
When performing the moisture test, only use a single droplet of water. You should never saturate genuine leather with excess moisture, as this may damage it. Faux leather, however, generally repels moisture instead of absorbing it. Of course, certain varieties of faux leather may absorb moisture to some degree, so you can’t rely strictly on this test to determine whether leather is real or fake. For a more complete and thorough identification, you’ll need to combine the moisture test with the other methods listed below.
You can also tell if leather is real by smelling it. Genuine leather has a distinct, natural odor that some people compare to wood chips. On the other hand, synthetic fake leather smells like synthetic plastic and chemicals. This makes sense considering the fact that synthetic leather is made using a variety of harsh chemicals, whereas genuine leather is natural. If you’re shopping for a leather jacket or any other leather item in person, take a few minutes to smell it. Does it smell natural and earthy? Or does it smell like it’s riddled with chemicals? If the latter is true, it’s probably made of fake leather, in which case you should skip it and move on to the next product.
As with most garments, leather jackets and other leather items usually contain a care label. You can typically find this label inside the back of the collar, where it reveals the manufacturer’s recommendations for cleaning and caring for the item. Additionally, however, the care label should reveal what fabric and materials the item is made of. Whether it’s genuine or faux leather, you should be able to find this information listed on the care label.
Unfortunately, however, you can’t rely on the care label to determine if leather is genuine with 100% accuracy. There are some companies out there that intentionally mislabel their products to deceive customers. Even if a leather jacket or product says “made of 100% genuine leather” on the care label, it could actually be made of synthetic materials.
Tips on How to Take Care of Your Leather Jacket
- Keep your leather jacket either flat or on a wide, tough, padded hanger to prevent stretch marks. Make certain to never use a plastic cover.
- Take care of the spots constantly. When in doubt take the jacket to the laundry shop.
- Keep your leather away from water as it will diminish the natural oils on the surface. If the jacket gets wet, allow them to dry naturally and away from extreme heat.
- If the leather appears to be losing its luster, it can be oiled with mink oil to enhance its appearance.
- Frequent oiling of leather will keep your leathers supple and improve their life expectancy drastically.
