What is microfiber leather?
Microfiber leather is produced when high grade polyurethane resin and ultra fine microfiber bundles are combined together to mimic the microscopic structure of leather. The technique used to produce microfiber leather results in an end product that mimics the structure, aesthetic and feeling of genuine leather. This makes microfiber a beautiful, high-quality and vegan-friendly product.
Benefits of microfiber:
▸ Smooth-to-the-touch, with a luxurious texture
▸ Superior durability (water and dust-resistant)
▸ Easy to care for and maintain
▸ Eco-friendly – it is pesticide-free and made with recycled and biomass-derived polymers
The microfiber leather is approximately 1.8mm / 0.07″ thick.
Upgrade to real leather
When upgrading to real leather, you will receive a matching authentic leather strap.
The leather is hand-cut from a full hide – we do not use leather off-cuts. Do note that, because leather is a natural product, there might be some lines or marks on the leather. This adds to the charm of the leather.
The leather is approximately 1.4mm / 0.05″ thick.
