The Monogram Canvas material is the most recognizable style from Louis Vuitton. Designed in 1896 by George Vuitton – Louis Vuitton’s son – to fight the increasing counterfeits. The monogram is made out of durable vinyl coated canvas but the process of making it is safely guarded secret of the LV company. This original design has taken the brand to its current position in the fashion industry and can be seen throughout the world in the homes of royal families, celebrities and the lucky rest of us :)
Louis Vuitton carries the name of its founder – the French entrepreneur and designer who established the company in 1854 in Paris, France. Not many people know, but Vuitton's entrance to the world of royalty was in no small part due to Napoleon’s wife hiring Louis Vuitton as her personal packer and box maker.
Louis Vuitton's first breakthrough was the creation of a trunk design that was lighter, yet more durable and most importantly square-shaped, which made it stackable and as such, more suitable for transportation. Since then, with its 100 years of innovation and experience, the brand is far ahead of its competition in any regard and with timeless designs from a long list of famous designers as Marc Jacobs, Takahashi Murakami and most recently, Yayoi Kusama, Louis Vuitton is capturing the hearts of more fashion lovers with each passing day.
