Blended Edges On Pleather

fabricI am making a pleather purse and have noticed pleather purses sold retail have smooth edges (such as the trim or edges of the handles). When I say smooth they have a melted look on the edge so the unnatural looking back of the pleather doesn’t show and the edges almost look sealed together. I have purchased a soldering iron thinking this is what they used but that isn’t it. Do you know how they make the edges blend together and look smooth. This is driving me nuts ha!
Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Terri: The heat sealing machines they use, cost thousands of dollars.
It would be less expensive to buy a real leather purse, than to try to make one Plastic one.
Good Luck, Andy
