Get to Know Louis Vuitton: Facts that elevate its charm

Behind those iconic monograms and elegant designs, there are some fun and quirky facts about Louis Vuitton that you probably never knew!

LV Trunk collection:

Did you know that the Louis Vuitton trunk was the brand’s first product? Louis Vuitton spent 17 years studying trunk making before launching this iconic piece. Not only is it stylish and practical, but it can also be used in various ways - as a table, vanity box, vase and many more depending on your creative ideas!

The Secret Code:

Every Louis Vuitton product has a hidden date code that tells you when and where it was made. It’s like a little treasure hunt for fashion detectives. Next time you get your hands on an LV item, try to find the code and decode it!


The devoted love for Speedy:

Audrey Hepburn, celebrated as a film and fashion icon, was also a devoted fan of the Louis Vuitton Speedy bag. In the 1960s, she requested a smaller version of it, which resulted in the creation of the Speedy 25!

The Unusual Canvas:
The original LV canvas wasn’t made from leather. It was a specially coated canvas that was more durable and waterproof. This unique material made it perfect for traveling and for standing out in the crowd!

The Damier Canvas:
Before the famous LV monogram, there was the Damier canvas. Introduced in 1888, this checkered pattern was created to combat counterfeiting and remains a classic design.

The LV Monogram:
The iconic LV monogram was introduced in 1896 by Georges Vuitton, Louis’ son, as a tribute to his late father. The monogram, featuring the initials "LV" and floral motifs, was designed to prevent counterfeiting and has become a symbol of luxury.
From innovative trunks to modern fashion, Louis Vuitton's history is full of interesting facts and milestones. The brand grew from a small box-making business to a global luxury icon. When you carry your Louis Vuitton, remember the legacy and craftsmanship behind it!
