The Louis Vuitton Corporation has been manufacturing leather goods since the late 19th century. Since having been founded in 1854 the company has gone from making suitcases to making both men's and women's clothes and accessories. Some accessory items include sunglasses, handbags, belts and shoes. Every bag that LV produces is still made by hand and can take up to 60 hours to produce.
Today, Vuitton merchandise are accessible through genuine LV boutiques and are even distributed through the organisation's main website LouisVuitton.com. To this day, the Louis Vuitton establishment is being kept alive by over 8,000 devoted employees from around the globe, and continues to rekindle people's hankering for elegance.
