Leather chairs for automobiles are usually made of leather and imitation leather, one is animal skin and the other is non-animal skin. Leather is definitely more expensive than imitation leather, because leather is generally made of cowhide, sheepskin and pigskin. In the past, only high-end cars had leather seats, but now many cars have leather and imitation leather seats. Of course, there must be a difference between the two. The leathers familiar to car owners are full aniline leather, semi-aniline leather and Nappa leather, among which Nappa leather is often regarded as a symbol of high-grade leather. In fact, Nappa leather is not a name for leather, but a tanning process that softens leather. This kind of leather is breathable and fine, and has good wear resistance.
So what are the advantages of these expensive leather seats?
- Dirt resistance Compared with ordinary seat materials, leather is not easy to get dirty, and there is only a little dust when no one sits for a long time.
- Highlight the grade There is no doubt that leather seats are more elegant than fabric seats or other material seats. More than a decade ago, leather seats appeared almost exclusively in imported cars of luxury brands.
- Easy to clean Compared with fabric seats, dust can only fall on the surface of leather seats, not deep into the seat, so it can be cleaned by patting with cloth, or wiping the stains with natural environmental cleaner, and the seat will be as good as new immediately. Imitation leather seats are characterized by smooth and delicate surface, concave and convex patterns, and fine density. The surface of leather seats is rough and concave and convex, which intuitively gives people a sense of reality. The quality and price of leather seats vary from hundreds to tens of thousands, which is just a layer of leather, after which a series of physical and chemical processes, tanning and so on are needed. In this way, it is reasonable that leather seats are more expensive. Leather seats are usually only used in luxury cars, because this will improve the overall class of the car and make the price of the car higher.
