Klauber, which was founded in Germany in 1859, specifically disagrees with two items: the "Kylie thong panties" sold at the official Kylie Jenner online store, and a slip sold under the Kendall + Kylie brand, according to court documents obtained by TMZ.

According to Klauber, the Kylie Thong panties waistband uses the company's two-dimensional lace design, while the slip uses one of Klauber's other lace patterns.

According to the lawsuit, "Kylie thong panties," sold at the official Kylie Jenner online store, used one of her waist designs.
