Is It Leather

Our Story

Our Mission

Our mission is to advocate for real leather and its many benefits as a premium luxury material. We hope to achieve this goal by educating consumers, demanding transparency from retailers, and calling attention to the confusion caused by fake leather alternative products.

Who Are We?

The “Isitleather” campaign is an international consumer awareness initiative that was launched in August, 2021 on behalf of the leather industry. We represent a consortium of companies from around the world. Our objective is to advocate for real leather and its many benefits as a top-quality material that is worth defending. We strive to reach consumers around the world with our pro leather messaging and to shine a light on the growing problem created by the confusing promotion of fake leather alternatives.
Our goal is to help protect the consumer. We strive to turn isitleather.com into the best venue for consumers to learn important information about leather, stay up to date on industry news, ask questions, share their stories, and support the leather industry.
Many consumers are unaware of the problem of the substitution of fake leather products for real ones. Our original objective was to provide consumers with the information needed to protect themselves from inadvertently purchasing synthetic leather products. We have since expanded our campaign to not only focus on education, but also to create a central hub for everything leather.
