Louis Vuitton first introduced the classic monogram canvas in 1896. In an effort to prevent counterfeiting back in the day, the quatrefoils, flowers and the LV monogram were added. At that time, monogram canvas was used for luxury luggage because it was very durable for travel by rail and steamer.
Today, Louis Vuitton continues to produce some of the best quality bags and accessories in the world, with superior styling, craftsmanship, and materials. In 2016 Louis Vuitton was named the world’s most valuable luxury brand for the twelfth year in a row.

All hardware is a gold tone. Produced in November 2000, this bag was made in France. The date/authenticity code is M11010. Includes dust bag. Retails $1300 USD.
