Not to be confused[edit]

If artificial leather is not to be confused with pleather, why is the latter link circular? Jim.henderson (talk) 02:26, 15 December 2007 (UTC)

I guess there was once a separate "pleather" topic. I've replaced the circular link with a link to the Pleather section of the page. 82.73.220.144 (talk) 14:39, 16 January 2008 (UTC)

Leatherette[edit]

I think there should be a link to leatherette but not sure of where the best place would be for it on this page. Thoughts? Akerbeltz (talk) 15:29, 10 April 2008 (UTC)

How about under "See Also"? -- Avocado (talk) 23:58, 10 April 2008 (UTC)
>.< of course ... thanks. --Akerbeltz (talk) 00:22, 11 April 2008 (UTC)

Merger[edit]

I am proposing to close the merger between Artificial leather and vegan leather. This merger was proposed in February 2008 and there has been no opposition. Vegan leather will be a subcatagory of artificial leather. The reason for the merger is because vegan leather is not a broad enough topic to be a unique page.

Merger proposal[edit]

I'm proposing a large merger of all of the different types of artificial leather into the section types. Many of these pages are small and orphaned. Having them in one place would be useful. -- Aronzak (talk) 05:22, 27 December 2008 (UTC)

If noone objects -- Aronzak (talk) 09:25, 3 January 2009 (UTC)

Origin[edit]

It's never mentioned (I think) that naugahyde came from Naugatuck, CT. The old Uniroyal plant was also used for part of the "War of the Worlds" movie shooting. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Naugyhs (talkcontribs) 00:44, 29 March 2009 (UTC)

The first paragraph of that article says so. Jim.henderson (talk) 13:52, 19 August 2009 (UTC)

Veganline.com[edit]

The external link to Veganline.com is only minimally relevant to the article. If no-one objects, I might remove it. Z57N (talk) 10:23, 30 July 2011 (UTC)

Corfam no more?[edit]

I was in the U.S. Navy from 1974 to 1984 and Reserves till 1987. Most or all of that time Corfams were available for us to purchase. Of course, that doesn't mean Dupont still made them, but it makes the claim of a 1971 termination suspect.
