Hi peeps, im new to this forum.

Im just wondering is EPI leather patented? I see a number of leather suppliers offering EPI leather and before I use it I need to be sure I wont have a law suit on my hands

Do you mean patent like shiny or patent in copyrighted?
Epi is not patent (shiny), but there is a patent version coming out.
I imagine some part of the epi process is copyrighted.

Epi leather is a smooth leather which has been embossed meaning it has been pressed with a texured stamp which leaves the signature Epi leather design in the leather like a stamping process...whether this particular design captured with this embossing (i.e. the stamped design) is patented by Louis Vuitton or that the Name Epi leather is patented under copyright law I don't know...
