How about vernis, is that all pure leather? The smell is strong like its not pure leather.

The classic Louis Vuitton bags are actually canvas that has been coated and treated with PVC, without the coating the material would feel like a regular canvas bag.

Cuir Vernis is, as you probably know, French for patent leather. Patent leather is a leather that has been coated to give it a shine. It was a very popular leather treatment in the 50s and 60s because of its durability. This clear coating is why Vernis is prone to color transfer: pigments migrating from clothes to the coated layer of the leather.

Where in the world have you heard such thing?? That's ridiculous.
... hihi love this conversation! ... "liquified leather" phantastic! Let's put the liquified leather in to a 3D printer, add 7liters of blodd, some h2o an LV sticker at the end and we get ... tada ... Louis Vuitton's first made human being (hopefully made in France) lol [emoji23]

Sorry this was calling for a little giggle on the side!

Hi the tags that come with LV bags made from canvas state that the bag is made from coated fabric you are paying for a bag that is made to a very high standard from high quality materials and for items that are made in France,USA or Spain not in China and yes some of there dust covers and packaging are made in India but they are not trying to hide this fact from buyers it is stated on the tags inside the dust covers anyway I prefer bags that are made from canvas as they are much lighter than the full leather ones everyone has a choice as to what they prefer when it comes to designer goods I myself love Louis Vuitton and their bags will last many years.

Hello, I have bought a new LV Empreinte Alma PM in black. It’s quite lovely, but am surprised at how light it is in weight. Has anyone else noticed this ? am afraid it won’t be able to take much load. Please advice. Thank you

whats the canvas then , i know im stupid but is it man made ??
I too was wondering about the ICONIC MONOGRAM CANVAS & I found a great article here: https://fabuluxconsignment.com/blogs/news/whats-your-louis-vuitton-made-of


I also found this:

ICONIC MONOGRAM CANVAS AND COLORFUL LEATHER. ... Combining the House's signature Monogram canvas with colorful leather accents, these distinctive pieces open a new chapter in the Monogramstory in women's fashion. The result is a bold, on-trend style that makes the bags must-haves for this season.
This information helped me, so I hope it also helps you too.
