Faux Leather is a well-known term that mainly refers to oily synthetic leather, oily PU leather, PVC, and other meanings. But although Faux Leather is animal friendly, it is very harmful to the environment. During production, it produces a large amount of wastewater, sludge, and even uses a large amount of toxic and harmful chemicals such as DMF, formaldehyde, toluene, etc., which affect human health.
With the increasing emphasis on environmental awareness, EU regulations prohibit the use of oily PU leather containing toxic and harmful substances in the production of goods.

Vegan Leather is a new term derived from the development of the times, which means absolutely animal friendly leather. Many people may misunderstand that Vegan Leather is made from pure plants, but in reality, leather made from pure plants has no scientific research certification, has not been actually introduced, and cannot be mass-produced. And water-based PU leather is based on a large number of scientific patents, with practical products that can be mass-produced to meet the huge market demand. It is truly an environmentally friendly synthetic leather that does not contain animal skin ingredients or harmful chemicals such as DMF. So currently, the environmentally friendly vegan leather Vegan Leather proposed by EU and other countries refers to environmentally friendly water-based PU leather, water-based microfiber, and water-based recycled leather.
