ok i dare say most of you will laugh at my question but here goes. i have managed to track down a gipiemme pluma titanium saddle after several years to complement a titanium build and cant work out if the covering is leather or not? i am vegan so if it is leather it will be sold on. anyone ever buy one new? have any idea? it looks too uniform to be leather and a usual way to test is to burn a bit and if it smells like burnt hair it is leather but thats not an option. so my madness aside any ideas? i have emailed gipiemme but dont expect a response. cheers

The dark gray part looks a lot like Suede or any other synthetic leather to me.
