How to tell if that’s leather or not?

A quick tip how to tell if something is leather. We’ll use the sofa in this example. It can help save you a costly mistake and money at the same time. Please use this in additional to the smell and bend test.

Note: If it’s smells like leather it may still not be 100% leather. Of you bend it a few times and it cracks, it’s not leather.

It’s simple and easy. If you have other methods please also share it in the comments.
