A LEGENDARY HISTORY
When he was only sixteen years old, Louis Vuitton made a decision that would not only change his own life but the lives of his sons and future generations: he would become a trunk-master.
HOW IT ALL BEGAN
Louis Vuitton’s heritage as a trunk maker preceded even the founding of the company.
He quickly became a valued craftsman at the Parisian atelier of Monsieur Maréchal.
Louis Vuitton stayed for 17 years before opening his own workshop at 4 Rue Neuve-des-Capucines near the Place Vendome.
Both a family residence and the cradle of the company, the Asnières site has been the symbol of the Vuitton family’s personal and commercial success since 1859.
The original atelier has been expanded throughout the decades, but it is still where products are crafted today.
While the family home has been preserved and is part of a private museum, 170 craftsmen work in the Asnières workshop, designing and creating leather goods and special orders for clients around the world.
