When it comes to LV, everyone naturally thinks of the renowned monogram pattern. As an entry-level luxury brand, LV handbags are famous for their durability, thanks in large part to LV’s exclusive craftsmanship. Today, let’s take a closer look at the materials used by LV.
LV monogram and Damier patterns are based on coated canvas material. Compared to leather, this material is more waterproof, wear-resistant, and incorporates flame retardants during production. The production cost and complexity of craftsmanship are very high, making it difficult to replicate.
Epi leather was originally prevalent in vintage models but has seen a resurgence in recent years. Its unique textured surface can be crafted in various vibrant colors, making it widely used.
Grainy cowhide leather, known for its lightweight and soft grain texture, is one of the most attractive materials in the grainy leather category. Additionally, being a natural leather, it becomes softer with use over time. However, grainy leather has its own texture, providing a different tactile experience compared to lambskin.
Smooth Cowhide Leather, as the name suggests, is known for its smooth and glossy finish. Among the materials mentioned, smooth leather is easier to maintain. Its only drawback is that it may be slightly less abrasion-resistant compared to other materials.
Patent Leather Embossing
Patent leather bags are known for their vibrant colors and shiny surfaces, making them popular among many fashion enthusiasts. However, it’s important to avoid storing them with dark-colored objects to prevent color transfer.
LV offers a limited number of sheepskin bags because sheepskin tends to be thinner, resulting in an exceptionally soft feel. Don’t assume that only Hermès offers rare exotic leathers; LV also offers bags made from alligator, lizard, and even python skins, with prices ranging from tens of thousands to over a hundred thousand dollars. The quality of these materials rivals that of Hermès.
