  7. 7. Save Animals Stop using Leather After young pigs are stolen from their mothers, they are brought to another concentration camp like this one with its concrete floor and steel bars. These cattles hardly have room to lie down, and when they do, other cattle have trouble getting to whatever food and water may exist. Cage is filled with rabbits whose only release from this dungeon will come with their death when they are slaughtered for their flesh & soft leather Up-bringing
  8. 8. Sheeps aboard a truck, crammed in with no room to move and transported hundreds of kilometers on bumpy roads to the slaughterhouse.

  21. 21. Leather Material Alternatives <ul><li>Artificial leather : A re made using a wide variety of materials and processes, making it likely that you can find a fake leather that suits your tastes. While many fake leathers are made from different kinds of plastic, some earth-friendly, vegan faux leather is made from plant fibers and eco-friendly processes. Fake suedes look very much like the real thing, made with a realistic-looking artificial nap. Look to wholesale fabric suppliers for the widest selections of fake leathers </li></ul><ul><li>Rubber : Compared to leather, rubber is more stretchy, but similar in appearance and strength to certain treatments of leather. Rubber is a popular alternative to leather for flexible shoe soles, some clothing (especially novelty clothing) and hand-held items or grips, such as steering wheel grips </li></ul><ul><li>Denim : For a basic tough, long-lasting fabric that's often a good stand-in for leather, use thick, tightly-wound denim. Denim is a good fill-in for small handcrafted items where you would normally use leather, such as book bindings, billfolds or small pouches. Be sure to give loose denim edges a hem or coat them with hemming glue; although denim is comparable to leather in toughness and flexibility, unlike leather, it will fray </li></ul><ul><li>Rubber : Compared to leather, rubber is more stretchy, but similar in appearance and strength to certain treatments of leather.

It may come in the form of realistic-looking textured fake leather, or it may be used to create shiny, form-fitting clothes that can be flashier than leather while still producing a similar look. </li></ul>
  22. 22. Leather or non-leather? <ul><li>How to distinguish animal leather from non-leather? </li></ul><ul><li>A reliable way to check if the material in question is leather or not is to smell it; if still in doubt and if possible try to inspect its back surface by prying it open slightly: if it is not leather, it will have a material like texture, otherwise it will be very smooth. Or else, burn a corner: leather will burn without a flame and give a flesh burning odour, whereas all ‘synthetics’ will quickly catch fire because they are polymer based. </li></ul><ul><li>Another way to check is by applying a bit of saliva since animal leather absorbs moisture – on faux leather it will not ‘disappear’. ‘Synthetics’ have an unbroken uniformity in pattern over their entire surface whereas animal leather varies in patches. </li></ul>Save Animals Stop using Leather
