While many environmental and animal rights groups have their reasons to warn you away from leather seats, I'm not going to do that here as it really doesn't matter: it's irrelevant. Let's say you're interested in buying leather, what should you know about leather seats?
In the first place, I would say that real leather is only good for leather seating. The best leather for your seat can only come from a genuine cow; that's because there is no other substance that can withstand the rigors of daily use and abuse.
Now, what makes a genuine leather? It has to be tough and strong, because leather is not soft and fragile. This is why I warn you away from buying seat covers made of genuine leather: you'll end up buying something that won't last you much longer than a few years before you need to replace it.
Another thing that makes a leather seat superior is that they are easy to maintain and care for. There's no need for polishing or waxing. So don't expect leather seats to look like brand new for the life of the seat. The same goes for leather recliners: they should look shiny, clean and comfortable long after you've taken them out for a spin.
If you're going to buy a leather seat, don't forget to consider the fabric of the leather itself. While it may seem obvious, there are still many people who ignore this very important consideration. Leather seats look great but they can look dreadful if they're made from synthetic material such as polyester.
Leather seats look their best when made from genuine, natural material. Leather seats with synthetic materials on them will eventually lose their shine and color, and the fabric may not stay intact long enough for you to enjoy your seat for many years. This won't be a good thing if you're planning on buying a new car in a few years.
It's also a good idea to keep in mind how you plan on storing your leather chair. If you store it in a car or truck, it will need to be protected from damage. However, if you have the choice, avoid folding your leather recliner away.
Folding your chairs can lead to damage: if the storage space is not properly enclosed, the heat can be absorbed and cause damage to the leather. Some leather recliners are very hard to fold down, so be careful when you decide to do this.
Before you buy a leather recliner, make sure you know what type of leather it is. Different types of leather to provide different qualities of warmth and durability. For example, the softest leather is usually the least durable; whereas the most durable leather is the most expensive.
In addition, ask your seller about the kind of seat cover it has. While most seat covers will come with a built in cushion, there are still others that offer an option. In fact, some seats with built in cushioning aren't actually leather at all.
Plastic covers are becoming more popular as well. They're cheaper, more portable and generally easier to clean and care for. However, plastic covers can still fade over time.
Seat covers can be removed, too. This is another reason you should ask your seller about the types of seat covers he offers. If he tells you to remove them, don't be afraid to ask him about the ones that offer them.
So now that you know these things, you're ready to purchase your leather seats. I hope you get the most out of your seats.
Don't hate those who say bad things to bring you down, because they are the ones who make you stronger every day. Just because other people don't do us good doesn't mean we should respond in the same way. One of the best things in life is seeing the smiles on your parents' faces, and realizing that you are the reason.
