What about Pleather?
It took me 3 years to curate this Pleather collection. I had to find a pleather that is realistic and mimics real leather well. Paradiso Pleather has to be able to fold with strength, has the padded fiber backing to self-pad the pleather wherever it is used as strap & handbag components. And the bonus of the Paradiso Pleather Collection is that it comes in embossed & textured surfaces, that truly feel like real leather!
