Full grain leather featuring a luxurious pearlized metallic finish. Silky soft hand and smooth supple surface are achieved by vacuum drying which also enhances the depth and transparency of Vuitton. Superior selection of European cattle hides are hand-selected for Vuitton. The protective finish enables this leather to be suitable for aviation, contract, hospitality and residential applications.
REACH (EC 1907/2006) compliant production aims to improve the protection of human and environmental health. Processed using low emission mineral tanning formulas which are environmentally respectful, the hides are retanned in aged oak drums using vegetable agents, natural fat liquors, oils and dyes that ensure the leather is properly through dyed. Natural color variations may occur even within the same dye lot.
