Is leather considered a man-made material? Answered

You see, I recently bought a pair of boots that I assumed were leather. When I checked the materials list though it said it was "Constructed of All Man-Made Materials. So what gives???

What is "Genuine Leather"?

If you are in the market for a leather business case, attaché case, or travel bag, and the label reads "Genuine Leather," this is a "buyer beware" signal, because that label is telling you what the product is NOT. It is most certainly not full-grain, top-grain or belting leather. The fact is, the label "Genuine Leather" is purposely ambiguous, and meant to mislead the consumer.

"Genuine Leather," on a tag on a piece of luggage, means "not-the-best leather." It may mean "split leather."

Um, no. I'm afraid your original assumption was wrong. But they might still be a very good pair of boots.
