Why is leather not the same as leather?
Leather is a natural product, with natural and different characteristics. No leather is like the other. Many natural features, e.g. Insect bites are not leather defects but show the value and character of the leather we use. They are signs of authenticity. Natural characteristics do not reduce the quality of use of the leather and are not grounds for complaint.
