The beginning of Louis Vuitton

Louis Vuitton_Beginning

Louis Vuitton is now one of the world's most famous brands.
Louis Vuitton was founded in 1854, some 160 years ago. The founder, Louis, chooses to be a suitcase craftsman from the age of 16. Louis's skills as a suitcase craftsman were outstanding, enough to receive orders from the French royal family at the time. 20 years as a suitcase craftsman, Louis opened his atelier in Paris and founded a travel bag specialty store. The store specializing in travel bags is the current Louis Vuitton.


Shortly after its founding, Louis Vuitton gained popularity throughout Paris as a travel bag specialty store. When the means of transportation at that time began to change from horse-drawn carriages to railways. Considering the convenience of travelers, Louis has created the easy-to-stack and lightweight trunk case "Guri Trianon Canvas".


Many travelers were fascinated by the flat design like a wooden box, which was different from the one with a rounded trunk case. With the movement by rail becoming mainstream, the demand for Guri Trianon canvas will continue to grow steadily. However, this popularity later developed into a big problem...

Louis Vuitton copy products are on the market! ? ~ Birth of Damier ~

Around 1880, his son Georges Vuitton became the representative, replacing Louis, the founder. Around that time, a copy of the Louis Vuitton trunk case began to appear in the city. With a sense of crisis, Georges devised a new model line.


And it was "Damier" that was announced.


Damier has a novel design that is different from the one that was inspired by the Japanese checkered pattern. It is still a representative model line that still symbolizes Louis Vuitton.

Outflow of copy products one after another to the birth of monogram

Although it was a novel design of Damier, it was also designed for mass production, and soon copies came out. Georges does not consider simple designs that can be mass-produced, but designs that require the craftsman's outstanding technology.


And "Monogram" was announced. The monogram is an innovative design that combines the letters "L" and "V" of Louis Vuitton with flowers and stars reminiscent of Japanese family crests, and it requires skillful technology that cannot be duplicated elsewhere. Since then, the number of copy products on the market has been drastically reduced, and its innovative design has made it popular throughout Paris.


Even more than 100 years after the announcement, it is said that more than 60% of the sales of Louis Vuitton is occupied by the monogram series, and it is no exaggeration to say that it is the face of Louis Vuitton. I am.
