    One of the bags in the article is listed as being "vegan leather". Since leather is material made from the skin of animals, I was curious to know the materials used to create vegan "leather".....(laughing)....Peta.org states that vegan leather is "not made from the skin of dead animals". Hmmm. Did they remove the skin off of live animals? I think not! According to Peta.org, it is made from polyurethane. My question is this: Why is it called "leather"?

    This has been irritating me recently. I was raised in the retail leather goods business. Even on the various MobileNations sites, leather cases have been listed and they’re not leather.

    Vegan leather is another name for PolyUrethane or PU leather for short. That’s just another name for, you guessed it, PLASTIC, not leather of any kind....
