4 Ways to Identify Lederhosen made of Pure Genuine Leather

Authentic Lederhosen

So you’ve decided to attend this year’s Oktoberfest which means you need to buy yourself some authentic Lederhosen. But what exactly makes Lederhosen authentic, you ask? Well, it’s essentially the quality of the leather used to make the Lederhosen and how it has been stitched to get the shape of the traditional clothing.

Now before spending your hard-earned money on what looks like genuine Lederhosen for sale, it’s imperative that you understand what genuine leather is and how you can identify it. Bad quality Lederhosen made from cheap leather will only attract reproachful looks from the locals who consider poor quality Lederhosen disrespectful to the Bavarian culture.

Genuine leather comes from the skin of animals such as goats and cows. The best leather however, is considered to come from deerskin. But how can you tell the difference between synthetic leather and genuine leather? There are a few signs you can look for. Let’s take a look at some of them. 

Imperfections on the Surface

 As mentioned earlier, genuine leather is made from the skin of tanned animals. As such, the texture of German Lederhosen made from genuine leather is not smooth; rather it has small imperfections and pores on the surface. The surface of genuine leather made Lederhosen is as unique as the animal it came from, so run your hand over the surface and feel for small pebbles or bumps to ensure it is made from genuine leather.

Appearance of Creases and Wrinkles

What happens when you press down on real skin? It wrinkles and creases are formed. Pure leather made from the skin of animals acts much the same way. You will notice distinct wrinkles and creases appear in the leather of the Lederhosen when you press down on it. Synthetic leather simply depresses and returns to its original state after the pressure is removed.

Frayed and Rough Edges

Machine made leather will always have smooth edges because of the uniformity and precision of the machine. However, genuine leather is made from many strands, which naturally frays around the edges. This is easily noticeable in men’s Lederhosen made with pure cowhide leather.

Good Absorption Ability

Genuine leather has good absorption ability unlike synthetic leather. If you drip a few drops of water on the surface of Lederhosen made with genuine leather, it will absorb a few drops in the seconds to follow whereas the water would form a small puddle on the surface of synthetic leather.

These were just some of the main distinctions between Lederhosen made with genuine leather and those made with synthetic leather. If you’re looking to purchase Lederhosen online, then check out our collection of genuine leather Lederhosen at the Lederhosen Store where you will be spoilt for choice by our endless array of colors and designs.
