    i'm vegetarian so .. I hope you have an answer to this issue

    thanks!

    Are you going to eat the case? If you were vegan it would matter if it was real leather but why the specific animal? An animal product is an animal product.

    Apple doesn't disclose the details. All they say is that it is "tanned and finished European leather".

    It's genuine leather, probably from cattle. You need to get the dark colored ones so that it won't look bad after wear.

    The topic of this thread is the leather cases. There are other threads that discuss the silicone cases. You may have more luck discussing them there.
