Today, not all replica handbags are what they seem! I get tons of letters from readers who thought that they were purchasing leather bags but with bags of PVC or polyurethane finished rather – not because that they have been deceived, but rather that they do check just before they placed their order.
Artificial leather is more common today, so let’s learn more about it so that we can all be more savvy buyers
There are two popular types of artificial leather (or “pleather”) – PVC (polyvinyl chloride) and PU (polyurethane). PVC is not a convincing substitute for grain leather, but it is lightweight and very durable. In general, he has a brilliant luster and can be easily raised with a monogram or anything else, as the Louis Vuitton mirror Alma.
PU is similar, but you can easily apply a fabric printed in it to give the illusion that it is genuine leather. Some low imitation handbags use this trick to reduce costs, but the result is generally not persuasive.
Neither PVC nor will be years the way as real leather, which means that they will not develop an illusion.
Note that it is not just bags imitation using these substitutes of leather bags as the Mirroir are authentic designer brands that use these plastics to get a certain look. Some are quite popular, but personally, I am not a big fan. Call me old fashioned, but spent more than a sum of $1000 for a plastic bag seems wrong! And then spending much on any bag seems ridiculous to me – especially when the fabulous replica handbags are just at your fingertips!
