Before the Wright Brothers were the first in flight and Karl Friedrich Benz engineered the first petrol automobile, travelers in horse-drawn carriages, boats, and trains longed to find durable yet stylish trunks to accompany them on their travels. When 16-year-old Louis Vuitton began working with admired custom box-maker, Monsieur Maréchal, in 1837, his craft quickly obtained high-regards amongst Parisian travelers.
After 17-years of customizing boxes and trunks at Monsieur Maréchal’s Parisian atelier, Vuitton opened his own shop near the Place Vendome. Today, the monogrammed “LV” and Damier collections continue to be some of the most coveted luxury handbags and luggage around the world.
