All About Alcantara

The Speedy Mirage is my first ever piece with the alcantara lining. I always thought that the name was just something that Vuitton picked up to denote luxuriousness and high style. It turns out that Alcantara is a registered trademark of an Italian corporation that specializes in producing the material for companies like Maserati, Lamborghini, Ligne Roset and of course Louis Vuitton. It was invented by a Japanese scientist, Dr. Miyoshi Okamoto in the 1970's and was launched through the help of the ENI Group under its current name, Alcantara®. It is machine-washable and highly stain resistant plus it feels really, really nice. LVoe it!!! To know more about the Alcantara click here. Original tPF post. Photo credit: vuittonamour
