Many love the unique style and appeal of Louis Vuitton but for some the canvas editions were no longer enough. Many customers longed for a Louis Vuitton handbag crafted from luxurious leather and in 1985 the Epi leather line was launched.
Louis Vuitton Epi leather is high quality leather which undergoes a process to give it a protective layer. Not only does it receive this protective treatment but it also undergoes a color bath which allows the collection to have a wide variety of colors and shades without compromising on quality. This was an important factor in the lines success as it allowed Louis Vuitton to launch their first ever colored leather collection.
