    Real leather or True leather

    Hello everybody

    Can one actually say a thing like leather is real or true? I checked the dictionary but it is still confusing. Are both expressions correct or is only genuine leather the correct expression? When I googled these two phrases, they appeared in many sites.

    Please comment. Thank you.

    I have seen "genuine leather" and real leather", I have never seen "true leather" and it doesn't sound right to me.
