The article contends that the real issue about bonded leather is not about its viability, but about the truth in labeling. The author believes that the industry has a duty to label bonded leather in such a way that consumers fully comprehend what they are buying. The author adds that critics are concerned that consumers, who may not be well-informed and thus unable to differentiate one type of leather from another, will be misled.
