When it comes to handbags, there are a lot of different materials that you can choose from. Two of the most popular options are Apple Leather and PU leather. Both have their own unique set of pros and cons, so it can be difficult to decide which one is right for you. In this blog post, we will take a look at both materials and help you decide which one is best for your needs.

What is Apple Leather?

Apple Leather is a material that is made from apple skin. It is a sustainable and environmentally friendly option because it uses a waste product that would otherwise be thrown away. Apple Leather is also very durable and resistant to water and stains.

What is PU Leather?

PU leather is a synthetic material that is made to look and feel like real leather. It is much cheaper than apple leather, but it is not as durable or water-resistant. PU leather also has a tendency to peel and crack over time.

Now we know what Apple and PU Leather are, it's time to discuss the pros and cons of each!
