KALAU ADA 3 DOT DALAM SATU LUBANG TU, MAKNANYA, PIG SKIN LAH TU.
It is amazing that many Muslims do not know if they are actually wearing a leather jacket or a shoe or carrying a purse or any other leather product that is made of pigskin.
HERE ARE TIPS TO FIND WHAT A PIGSKIN IS, WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE AND WHERE IT IS USED ?
GENERAL LEATHER PRODUCT: Heavily used in Chinese and other developing or under-developing countries.
SHOES AND JOGGERS: Full Leather suede looking Shoes or inner linings
JACKETS: Full Leather suede looking knee long and waist long full sleeve or sleeveless jackets.
PURSES : Women and men purses. Full leather or linings.
BRIEF CASES: Men and Women leather brief cases, usually inner linings are pigskins. But look out for rest of the leather.
WHY IS IT USED?
PRICE AND AVAILABILITY: Pigskin is cheap and easily available in most countries. It is lighter that real suede made of Cow. Due to low price it is easier to market and sell. It was first used as liners as it is really thin and strong. Soon it was used in most products as profit margins are comparatively high.
HOW TO RECOGNISED IT?
Mostly, it looks like suede. But it is thinner. It has spots on it. Kind of depressions or little holes that never go through. It seems like some has used spikes to try to pin through it. But these spots are only on one side.
Usually, on the other side of the leather, you will see squeezed round shaped spots. These spots may not be very prominent on this side. If you look very closely at the pictures given, you will have no problem in identifying pigskin. If you are not sure, read labels or ask the store keepers. Do not ask them if these are pigskins. Let them tell you what kind of leather it is. Do not take their words.
Ask for proof.
cubalah takut sikit, bila tahu tu kulit ****. ambil tindakan. jangan lah buat muka slumber je.
