Louis Vuitton Suitcases “Alzer” and “Bisten”
The myth that surrounds the brand and Louis Vuitton suitcases has its roots in Paris where the young Louis, then 33 years old, founded his own company in 1854. With custom-made luggage he tapped a whole new market.
He invented a flat suitcase, made of poplar wood and canvassed with water-repellent fabric. It turned out to be the first piece of modern luggage, both refined and functional at the same time.
