Épi’s discreet pattern energizes all manner of accessories and lends itself to the brightest, boldest colors.

Created by Georges Vuitton and his son Gaston-Louis in 1920, Épi leather was inspired by fields of wheat rippling in the sunshine. Its distinctive grain has covered many trunks, including this desk-trunk, a special order for the great American conductor Leopold Stokowski in 1930.

This dazzling leather has contributed to the renown of many of the House’s bags, from the celebrated Noé, through the iconic Alma, to the Twist bag today.
