IRIS Series I Breathable Artifical Leather Gardening Gloves| Reinforced Palm Protection

The world of leather is a complex landscape, especially when we venture into the territory of artificial or synthetic leathers. Often misunderstood or misrepresented, artificial leather has unique properties that make it versatile for a wide range of applications, including specialized ones like gardening gloves. In this blog, we'll delve deep into what artificial leather is, debunk some common misconceptions surrounding it, and explore its benefits in the realm of gardening.

What is Artificial Leather?

Artificial leather is a material designed to mimic the aesthetic and functional properties of animal leather. It is made from synthetic or natural fibers coated with plastic materials like polyvinyl chloride (PVC) or polyurethane (PU).

Types of Artificial Leather

Understanding the different types of artificial leather can set the stage for debunking common misconceptions:

The "Second-Skin" Advantage in Gardening Gloves

When it comes to gardening gloves, artificial leather, particularly PU leather, offers a unique "second-skin" feel that provides an excellent balance between durability and flexibility. This ensures the gloves are not only protective but also incredibly comfortable, allowing for intricate tasks like planting seeds or pruning. This feature has garnered the attention of companies like Morewell, that specialize in high-quality, fashionable, and functional gloves.

Misconception 4: Artificial Leather is Cheaper, Therefore Inferior

Artificial leather serves different purposes and its lower price point doesn't necessarily mean it's inferior to animal leather.

Misconception 5: Artificial Leather is Only for Vegans

While ethical considerations make it attractive to vegans, artificial leather has wide-ranging applications, from automotive interiors to high-quality gardening gloves.


Artificial leather is a versatile material with a lot to offer, especially in specialized products like the Rose Premium and Iris Gardening Gloves from Morewell. Its unique "second-skin" feel and flexibility make it a strong contender for various applications, from automotive interiors to high-quality gardening gloves.
