When queried why they are calling some items PU Nubuck they state

* Thank you for your further email. I have checked with our
merchandise department regarding PU leather and they have fowarded to
me the details :-

To be exact in our PU Nubuck /leathercomposition, we can state that
this is made on a man-made cloth and includes coating of a separable
release substrate material with a polyurethane (PU) resin.


This is then disposed in an impregnation tank to allow the PU resin to
congeal into a sheet of minute pores attached to the release substrate
material. The release substrate material together with the sheet is
soaked in a wash tank to rinse off residual dimethyformamide (DMP)


The surface of the release substrate material is coated with a water
soluble resin that is later dissolved in water and then rinsed off.
The release substrate material is put into an oven to dry and then
removed to a grinder and huge rollers for processing into a nubuck
sheet.

(This is how the feel and visual characteristics of real nubuck is
processed)

The nubuck sheet is then washed again in a wash tank to rinse off the
water-soluble resin, it is then dried, subjected to surface finishing,
and than separated from the release substrate material to obtain a PU
nubuck sheet.

At no point do we use any animal skin in processing our PU
Nubuck/leather

I hope this is of assistance.

Kind Regards

Please watch out if ordering from Redwood Foods
http://www.redwoodfoods.co.uk/

The dick heads are sending out the chilled food unrefrigerated or
chilled which means by the time we get it it's almost hot! Customer
service don't care either.

Don't take chances on your health send it back if it arrives in an
unhygienic state, and report them.
