Yes. Louis Vuitton's Epi leather is indeed real leather. It is a type of textured leather with a unique wave or ripple pattern embossed onto its surface. The leather is specially treated to make it more durable and resistant to water and scratches.

The Epi leather collection was first introduced in 1985 and is known for its range of vibrant colours as well as its understated, elegant appearance.
