What are Louis Vuitton Monogram bags made of?

Louis Vuitton Monogram bags are typically made from coated canvas, which is a canvas material that is treated with a layer of protective coating. This gives the material its durability and water-resistance.

The monogram pattern—a signature feature of Louis Vuitton bags—is printed on the canvas material, and the LV Monogram includes the LV logo as well as stylised flowers in a repeating pattern.

The handles and trims on these bags are usually made from natural cowhide leather, which can develop a natural patina (a darkened or aged appearance) over time, adding to its appeal.

Hardware like zippers, locks, and clasps are typically made from high-quality metals such as brass.

Some variations of the Monogram bags may feature other materials like leather, exotic skins, or textiles, but the classic Monogram design is largely associated with coated canvas material.
