Louis Vuitton (since 1854)
Louis Vuitton (1821-1892) started his training as a bag maker at suitcase manufacturer Monsieur Maréchal in 1837 in Paris. This was essential in times of rough luggage transport on carriages, steam boats or trains. He opened his own shop in 1854 under the name of Louis Vuitton Malletier in Rue Neuve-des-Capucines 4. His modern dirt-resistant and waterproof products were of such good quality, that they were soon in high demand. The frameworks of the trunks were made from wood and metal constructions. 1886 Georges Vuitton (1857-1936), son of the company’s founder, invented the revolutionary locking system that is still used today. The patented Tumber Lock protects the trunk’s content from theft with an innovative locking system with two spring caps. When Louis Vuitton died in 1892, Georges took over the company. It was him who designed and established the iconic LV monogram. The luxury brand is popular worldwide and is one of the leading companies of the world of fashion.
