What you need to know about Louis Vuitton travel bag? 

Louis Vuitton is one of the most popular and successful fashion houses in the world. It produces a range of clothing, from watches to wallets, sunglasses and jewelry. But while it has expanded its offerings over the years, its luxury travel bags have long remained their signature accessories and the product that has earned it widespread recognition.

Louis Vuitton started as a travel goods brand – what made their luggage distinctive for the time?

Louis Vuitton began almost two centuries ago, when the founder Louis Vuitton opened the first shop located on 4 Rue Neuve-des-Capucines in Paris in 1854. His vision was to create durable, long-lasting travel pieces that were lightweight and easy to transport.

The trunks were an integral part of the label’s offering. In fact, a sign outside of Louis Vuitton’s very first workshop even read: “Securely packs the most fragile objects. Specialising in packing fashions”. One of the distinctive aspects of LV’s approach was the use of canvas instead of leather. This was revolutionary for the time, because this made the trunks waterproof and very durable.
