Standard is premium Korean fabric that is stain, water, dust resistant. Every chair can be requested to be in premium Korean synthetic leather @$30-$50.
What is premium Korean synthetic leather? Premium Korean synthetic leather feels like premium natural leather but has the added advantage of being maintenance free (real leather needs to be oiled regularly or it will crack.) Premium Korean synthetic leather doesn't peel off easily like cheaper China synthetic leather. The Korean synthetic leather is of such high quality and real leather chair is unnecessary as they need regular maintenance and cheap real leather are not as comfortable.
Who chooses synthetic leather? Those who need their chairs to be easy to maintain. Those who are very sensitive to dust as synthetic leather has smoother surface and more dust resistant than fabric. Those whose skin is very sensitive to texture.
Who chooses fabric? As our fabric is water, stain and dust resistant, the difference is not really huge. But if you're a fan of leather, then make the change. If not, our fabric has smaller pores (compared to cheap fabric that is very rough and has many big pores and trap dust easily) and are almost as dust resistant and easy to maintain. So if cost is a big factor, there is no need to change. Use the budget for other options like color etc. instead.
✏️ TIP: Generally speaking we have 2 kinds of fabric: thick and thin yarn. The thick yarn is more water-resistant but the pores are also bigger. The thinner yarn has smaller pores, is less water-resistant but feels finer. As you chair needs to have strong wear-and-tear, we cannot use cotton. Cotton feels most comfortable but tears easily and will not last. (If you're very sensitive to texture, then go for synthetic leather or wrap a cotton T-shirt around the seat.)
