The article reports on the hesitation of many leather furniture manufacturers to use the bonded leather as upholstery resources in the U.S. The bonded leather is a combination of 17 percent leather remnants with a polyurethane fixative, and a poly/cotton backing. According to Tim Mueller, vice president of merchandising for Genesis Furniture, there is a lot of angst about bonded leather on the part of leather manufacturers given the attitude of people towards the product.
