Recently, we came across the 5 facts below and I’m sure they will catch your attention and interest as they did mine.
1. At any one moment, an average person will be wearing at least four pieces of leather
Look at yourself and evaluate your closet, you will see that most likely, there will be at least 3 to 4 pieces of leather on your body. It’s normally rare to see a person with less. If you are a guy especially, there is a high probability that your watch will have leather straps, your wallet will be made from leather and also your shoes will be made from the same material. This just means that leather will maintain dominance on your body thus making it rare for you to have less than three materials made from leather on your body at any one time.
2. More than 23 Billion square feet of leather were produced in 2016
If you loved your original leather Real Madrid wallet you got as a gift from your wife, then know that the leather used was part of the 23 billion feet. And when converted, 23 billion feet of leather is equivalent to 4 million miles. If you ask me, I’d have to say that that is just a lot of leather for a single year.
3. Leather is a natural and renewable resource
To you, this might seem like an obvious fact since you are a fan of leather based Real Madrid accessories. To someone else though, the story is different. The strong nature and durability of leather makes it appear like a complicated material that is either non-renewable or not natural. Well, leather is both. It is proposed from the skin of mammals mainly cattle which are reared on farms from their birth until they fully mature for slaughter.
4. The first leather wallet was made in 1602
I know, that’s really really far back. Wallets came concurrently with the introduction of paper money back in the 17th century. If you have gone through our original Real Madrid licensed leather wallets, then I’m sure you will be astonished by the amazing difference when you compare them with their first leather predecessors. It proves the saying that genes improve across generations.
5. Luxury made of leather
Historically, leather has been the protagonist of the world of luxury. There are many fashion brands that have incorporated leather as a distinctive and luxurious element. Beside these firms, a team of the magnitude of Real Madrid, has not been able to resist having its own line of products made of this exclusive material. Many of our products have the limited edition seal because at PremiumsFC we work with the most exclusive products, thanks to the limited number of products we make from each collection.
