It is clearly not real leather which I didn't expect, it's easily rubbed off color on the corners from kids and moving around to vacuum but I touched it up with a furniture marker and it looks fine. This will work nicely until I have an adult only living room in about never.
This ottoman looks much nicer in person. I've had mine for over a year and with a little girl who loves jumping on it & crawling on the inside, it has held up very well. I would highly recommend this ottoman if you are considering purchasing.
