Real leather can also be known as full-grain leather, which is the highest grade of leather you can find on the market. It usually has no major surface defects, holes, or incisions.
It retains all the toughness of tightly packed surface fibers so that it is very soft to the touch but still tough.
Because of its soft touch, tough and durable feature, genuine leather patches are usually used for high-class jeans and hats.
PU leather is an artificial leather made of thermoplastic polymer.
Because PU leather patches are cheaper than genuine leather patches, some customers like to buy PU leather patches to replace genuine leather patches.
In order to satisfy this segment of customers, we choose higher quality PU leather to make into PU leather patches which are taking the fibrous part of cowhide leftover from manufacturing real leather and adds a layer of polyurethane on top.

and sanded to produce a surface with a nap of raised leather fibers (almost like fuzzy hairs) that make it was quite soft, comfortable.
