View Full Version : Synthetic Leather?

Can someone possibly define what the BCA means by synthetic leather? Seems as if this might be a real sticky question from time to time(IMO.) I mean, who's the expert that gets to decide simulated leather and not an illegal material? sid

Good question, Sid!

I've always assumed that synthetic leather was obtained from synthetic cows, synthetic pigs, synthetic lizards, etc.--but the BCA should tighten up their writing on this one.
