Default Foam-like material of super cheap straps from China and India

Hi, Does anyone have any insight as to what material they are using on the super cheap $0.01 "leather" straps they are selling on ebay from China and India? I purchased a couple and it felt like super cheap foam-like material. I would not buy it again.

Nope. Folks here generally stick to better quality straps

Check out Pannatime for leather straps.
They've never played me false. Ever!

Those ultra cheap ebay straps are the worst. http://www.panatime.com/ for high quality genuine leather straps that will last you a lot longer.

I'm gonna go out on a limb and say they're probably made of some sort of super cheap foam-like material.

Guys:
IMO you can't make a silk purse out of a sows ear. Nor Far East straps.
My comment about Pannatime straps still stands.
That's my story and I'm sticking to it.
