Is the Louis Vuitton Croissant leather?

No, the Louis Vuitton Croissant bag is often made in the brand's signature coated canvas material, known as Monogram Canvas, which features the iconic LV monogram pattern and is coated to make it more durable and resistant to wear and tear.

However the strap and detailing are made of tan *vachetta leather*, which develops a beautiful patina as it ages. The depth of *patina on the straps depends on a series of factors with the natural leather* susceptible to water, stains and exposure to sunlight.

When new, vachetta leather is very pale and almost peach like in colour, but as it ages, it turns a wonderful honey brown colour, adding to the character and aesthetic of the bag.
