Now in its third century, Louis Vuitton remains one of the world's most coveted symbols of status and sophistication. The Damier pattern was designed in 1888 and the Monogram, in 1896. Over a hundred years later, these remain two of the most recognizable prints in the world. PLEASE NOTE: This item is marked with a little circle next to the interior 'LOUIS VUITTON PARIS MADE IN FRANCE' tag. This marking indicates that it was a Louis Vuitton employee purchase.
