I was looking around, and found pictures of the LV Alma with the monogram on bottom and some with the cowhide leather on the bottom. Does LV make both? Thanks.

I believe that the authentic Alma bag will have plain leather on the bottom. But I hope someone else can confirm this.

I personally think Damier Alma looks so much nicer than Monogram

my first choice would be the epi, but between the monogram and the damier canvases, i would pick the damier because i wouldn't have to worry about messing up the leather.

Hi,
Monogram Alma's always have the Leather bottom, and do not have feet, nor do they have a D ring. And the strap is always sold seperately. They do not come with a strap. Hope this Helps
Pamela

If you're gonna drop that much money pleeease buy from an official LV source.. I hate to see women ripped off! There are soooo many fakes out there.

Yes, LV Monogram always has leather on the bottom. The only time an LV had monogram on the bottom was on the multicolore alma in their runway show for their 2003 Spring Line 2003. When they actually produced the bags for the boutiques, they put leather on the bottoms.
