  • Natural or Artificial leather

    Hello everyone
    I'm a new one in leather crafts
    Want to create accessories for daily use. I attached the photo for example.
    Full-grain Horween leather or vegan leather - Which variant will be easier for me to work with
    Appreciate your advice
    Thanks

    I don't know what vegan leather is but it doesn't sound good to me! Horween leather is amazing so i would go with that :-)

      Vegan leather is not actually leather. It is sturdy, tearproof composite material made of layered paper with a latex core. It is washable, you can iron it, paint it etc.

      I use it at the moment and it is definitely easier to work with. You don't need a lot of tools like you would with real leather - you can punch it with a regular needle. They call it vegan leather because when you touch it, it's supposed to feel like leather. I don't find it as similar but it is still great as an option for some non-leather or combo projects
