Question:

Is the Ashley furniture Warnerton collection considered bonded leather or polyester polyurethane?

August 5, 2020

Answer:

The Warnerton collection is made from polyester and polyurethane, also known as “faux leather.”

After thousands of complaints from bonded leather customers, several major retailers and manufacturers are finally switching to a new polyester/polyurethane (and sometimes including vinyl) faux leather material.

This is a relatively new type of faux leather that is significantly less expensive than 100% polyurethane faux leathers.

The fabric in this particular collection is 80% polyester. That is an unusually high percentage of polyester in a faux leather. (Typically, the more polyester and less polyurethane used, the lower the cost of the faux leather fabric.)

These new polyester/polyurethane fabrics haven’t been around long enough to evaluate their long term durability and comfort – but it is difficult to imagine that they can be any worse than the bonded leathers.
