I'm pretty sure it's just a plastic of some type.

Oil, originally.

eww. kinda gross once you think of it. Oh well XD

I think some cow's skin is pretty gross. So pick your poison. The stuff that leather is treated with to keep it from rotting like normal flesh is pretty nasty too.

Inside a Wintec Cair saddle you will find these...and hard cotton wool like lumps of flocking.

I thought it was pretty awesome too:lol:, I'm not a fan of Cair now though:wink:

Without taking the time to specifically research the exact components- its a plastic imitation leather, kind of a pleather. Man made leather, in other words.
