This Iconic brand was founded by Louis Vuitton Malletier back in 1824 in Paris, France. At that time he specialized in crafting rigid travel cases that were covered in canvas called “wooden steamer trunks”. It wasn’t until many years later that Louis Vuitton Handbags were designed and manufactured.

Luggage in those days was made in round shapes making it very difficult to pack on trips taking up lots of room in conveyances. It was around 1858 when Louis Vuitton began to design and manufacture luggage that was flat, not round as before. This shape allowed pieces to be stacked taking up far less space when traveling, an innovation for the day for sure. It wasn’t long before other manufacturers began to copy these designs.  Louis Vuitton

It wasn’t until much later, in 1896, that George Vuitton, the only son of Louis Vuitton, designed a canvas print with the LV logo in brown tones, imprinted on it. This innovation made it very difficult for others to copy their designs which at the time was a major problem.

More History

Until as recently as 1985, all products created by the iconic brand were made of canvas. It was then that Louis Vuitton introduced leather into their collection, manufacturing a new line of leather luggage.

Georges Vuitton took over the reins of the company from his father in and around 1892 upon Louis’ death. He served the growing company very well until his death in 1936, when his son Gaston, took over. Gaston was the third generation of Vuittons to head the company who continued his leadership until his death in 1970.

….And a Little More

Louis Vuitton HandbagGeorges Vuitton was responsible for many innovations to the Louis Vuitton brand. For example, it was well-known that if one possessed one of these expensive trunks back in the day, that it very likely contained valuable things, which made them the target of robberies. As a result, Georges was responsible for the development and manufacture of the tumbler lock, similar to the locks we see today. This development definitely put a crimp into the style of any would-be burglar.  Louis Vuitton Black Bag

Louis Vuitton started to design and produce bags for women in 1930, originally made from canvas with their iconic logo, a little smaller version a couple of years later in 1932. Leather bags did not follow until 1985.

It wasn’t until 1997 when the Louis Vuitton brand ventured outside its traditional offerings by launching its own line of womens “ready-to-wear” clothing.

The company launched its first ever piece of jewelry on 2001, followed quickly by its first collection of watches in 2002.

The brand began to develop relationships with many celebrities who began to promote Louis Vuitton products.

Louis Vuitton is probably the most well-known luxury brand in the world with more than 400 retail stores.  Louis Vuitton Book

Why So Expensive

* Louis Vuitton bags can only be purchased originally through their network of over 400 retail outlets around the world.

* The brand definitely has a glamorous image.

* They use only the best quality materials and decorations.

* Until 2005, it would take up to 8 days and perhaps 20-30 craftsman to produce a Louis Vuitton bag. So, as you can see, a very labor intensive process. This, of course, symbolized QUALITY to the consumer.

* Handbags are still assembled by hand by over 250 workers at their facility in France.

* For a more PRESTIGIOUS bag, you may have yours made completely by hand at their factory. It will of course, cost a lot more money.

* Because Louis Vuitton controls all of their inventory and pricing, and all bags are sold at a similar price, there is no reason for them to go on sale. It is for this reason that the value of these bags remains consistently high.

Review – Louis Vuitton Handbags

Louis VuittonThere are literally thousands of reviews of these designer handbags, purchased by discerning women all over the world. Some are even known to have collections which really do increase in value over the years. In our research, the only real con to a Louis Vuitton bag, may be the cost, definitely not within the average womans budget.

The least expensive bag in their collections is made of canvas and retails around 630.00

Bags have a great design complimenting any outfit. There is ample storage and are available in a wide array of colors.

Some bags are difficult to acquire, and of course, command a very high price.

Bags are versatile in that they can be carried over the shoulder, across the body, or with a top handle. Bags are lined and come with the Louis Vuitton monogram.

Unfortunately, the closure on some of these bags is non-magnetic, which means, you will have to insure the buckle is closed to secure the contents, as well as being a little cumbersome to get in and out of.

LV shoulder bags do come in a variety of sizes and styles, so I’m sure you will find just the right fit for your personality.
