Epi’s discreet pattern energizes all manners of accessories, lending itself to the brightest, boldest colors.

Created by Georges Vuitton and his son Gaston-Louis in 1920, Epi 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.
