What is Vernis made out of?

  1. Yes I have already done a search, but I can not find the answer anywhere. What exactly *is* vernis? Is it leather? A coated canvas? Sorry for being so dumb, but I have no idea and I would like to know.

    If this is not posted in the right forum.. sorry.. I tried!

    Monogram Vernis Leather

    Inspired by the spirit of Louis Vuitton's ready-to-wear collections, Monogram Vernis is a vivacious, sparkling, ultra-feminine fashion line. Patent calfskin bags and accessories in a range of unusual, sutble colours highlight the famous Monogram canvas pattern. Special tanning techniques gives the leather a glossy and sophisticated look and make it resistant to abrasion and scratches.
