    Wabi-sabi---the art of finding beauty in things humble, imperfect and aged
    Is Water-Based PU Leather Toxic free?
    I doubt there is such a thing as toxic free leather. Recycled, genuine or PU (Polyurethane) coated
    leather all need to go through some type of chemical process to make it suitable to work with.

    But really, my main concern with PU Leather would be comfort and durability compared to genuine
    leather. PU Leather can begin to crack and crease in only a few years.

    Genuine leather gives you breath-ability, strength, elasticity, retention, flexibility, softness, and
    durability. And from an upholsterers viewpoint, workability including the shrinkage process with a heat
    gun or moisture. Genuine leather gives you the added benefit of aging gracefully with developed patina
    and wrinkles and stretch marks.
