    Thumbs up Louis Vuitton Heritage History Facts

    So I follow LouisVuitton on twitter. (If you don't it's @LouisVuitton_US) And every now and then they post history heritage tweets, so I thought it would be cool if we started posting them on here.

    Here are a couple that LV recently posted.


    • Louis Vuitton opened his first luggage store in 1854, at 4, rue Neuve des Capucines in Paris


    • In 1858,Louis Vuitton revolutionized the trunk industry by creating the 1st flat top trunk
    • Our first Louis Vuitton workshop opened in 1859 in the Paris suburb of Asnieres


    • Did you know that our Damier canvas was created in 1888, well before our Monogram canvas
    • In 1896 Louis Vuitton’s son George created Monogram canvas in memory of his father.


    • The very first presence of our Louis Vuitton trunks in the United States was in Wanamaker’s department stores in 1898.


    • Our steamer bag was launched in 1901 as an elegant laundry bag for travelers on a cruise.
    • In 1924 our Keepall was created as an extra bag to store in the suitcase, but soon became a bag for weekend trips
    • Our classic Speedy launched in 1930, but became famous when it was redesigned for Audrey Hepburn in the 1960's
    • Be sure to watch the classic film "Charade" where you can catch a glimpse of Audrey Hepburn carrying our Speedy

    This is interesting! I didn't know the Damier canvas before the Monogram canvas.
