Louis Vuitton Trunks and Luggage

Stackable travel trunks were the first products crafted by the renowned French luxury brand Louis Vuitton. Today, vintage Louis Vuitton trunks, which became available as railway travel was gaining popularity in the 1850s, are typically used as practical pieces of furniture or welcoming decor in modern homes.

The young Louis Vuitton (1821–92), who was born in Anchay, France, and founded his packing company in Paris in 1854 after apprenticing as a packer and box maker, began to make travel trunks as train travel expanded during the 19th century. Offering these new goods in his retail space on rue Neuve des Capucines would meet the demands of the clients who were shuffling on and off railcars in the country’s bustling capital. Trains as well as steamships were carrying travelers near and far, and Vuitton’s handcrafted rectangular trunks — an improvement on the standard round trunks, which didn’t store well — were soon coveted by the modern nomad. Initially, the wood trunks featured gray trianon canvas and, then, striped canvas of varying colors before they would proudly wear the famous Louis Vuitton monogram (integral to determining the authenticity of the brand’s revered handbags).

Louis Vuitton’s upright trunks — a variation on the brand’s first trunks that were introduced in 1858 — made for proper transportation of garments and doubled as actual wardrobes, ensuring that the finery of the day traveled wrinkle-free. Regardless of the orientation, the popular steamer trunks were equipped with bands to secure travel documents as well as convenient shelves and compartments of varying sizes for every possible traveling necessity, including barware.

In 1929, orchestra conductor Leopold Stokowski commissioned Georges Vuitton to design a special trunk. Georges was the only son of Louis Vuitton and had taken over the company’s operations when his father died in 1892. This special commission would yield no ordinary piece of luggage: Stokowski was music director of the Philadelphia orchestra, conducted the classical works for Walt Disney’s Fantasia and would help form the New York City Symphony.

He traveled the world with frequency and basically needed a portable office. Thus, the Secretaire Stokowski was covered in rugged canvas that was branded with the famous Louis Vuitton insignia, featured hardware in solid brass and stood over two feet tall. It was fitted with a foldout desk (subsequent models offered a desk finished in solid beech), drawers for sheet music and a box crafted specifically to hold Stokowski’s typewriter and more.

Today, Louis Vuitton’s furniture lines include sofas and edgy lounge chairs by the likes of designers such as Marcel Wanders and stools by Tokujin Yoshioka, but for vintage collectors and interior designers creating stylish living rooms, it’s usually all about the trunks.

Featuring exterior fabrics such as the brand’s signature Damier (French for checkerboard), heritage Louis Vuitton trunks nowadays add a rich air of nostalgia to contemporary homes more often than they do in private railcars. Whether they’re used as durable coffee tables, nightstands or case pieces, these time-tested steamer trunks are versatile. The right vintage Louis Vuitton trunk can prove a dynamic home accent for modern interiors or, nestled alongside distressed exposed brick walls, a sophisticated furnishing for rustic loft spaces.

Questions About Louis Vuitton Trunks and Luggage
  • 1stDibs ExpertApril 5, 2022
    Yes, if they’re post-1980. Modern Louis Vuitton products have date codes that indicate the country of manufacture and the time of year it was made. The date codes are usually tucked away in seams or pockets. On 1stDibs, you’ll find a large collection of authentic Louis Vuitton products from some of the world’s top sellers.
  • 1stDibs ExpertMarch 22, 2022
    No, not all Louis Vuitton items have date codes. The brand introduced the codes in 1982, so vintage bags produced before that date lack the code. In March 2021, Louis Vuitton began adding authentication microchips to their bags instead of stamping on date codes. You’ll find a large selection of authentic Louis Vuitton apparel and accessories on 1stDibs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertApril 5, 2022
    There are a few sure-tell signs of authenticity for Louis Vuitton scarves. A Louis Vuitton scarf will have a hang tag attached with cleaning instructions and country of manufacturing.

On 1stDibs, shop a large collection of authentic Louis Vuitton scarves from some of the world’s top sellers.
  • 1stDibs ExpertApril 5, 2022
    Any vintage Louis Vuitton item prior to 1982 will not have a serial number. Serial numbers were introduced to Louis Vuitton products in 1982 and discontinued in March 2021 in favor of RFLD chips instead. You’ll find a wide range of Louis Vuitton vintage and modern pieces on 1stDibs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertApril 5, 2022
    Yes, it is very common for Louis Vuitton items to have upside down LV logos because their leather goods are often made with one continuous piece of leather. Some handbag styles, like the Louis Vuitton Speedy, use one large piece of leather wrapped round the exterior, resulting in upside down LV logos. Shop a wide range of Louis Vuitton garments and handbags on 1stDibs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertApril 5, 2022

  • 1stDibs ExpertApril 5, 2022
    Store your Louis Vuiton bag at room temperature, and away from light and moisture. Do not hang it when storing it, but instead set it on a flat surface with the strap neatly rolled up inside.

Browse through a selection of authentic Louis Vuitton handbags on 1stDibs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertFebruary 22, 2021

The remainder of their coated canvas bags is PVC-coated cotton canvas, but leather is the sole material used to make some Louis Vuitton handbags, wallets and luggage pieces. You’ll find a large selection of Louis Vuitton bags on 1stDibs.
    1stDibs ExpertApril 5, 2022

Browse a wide array of Louis Vuitton haute couture from some of the world’s top boutiques on 1stDibs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertApril 5, 2022
    To reshape a Louis Vuitton bag that has creases or is slouching, you can use stuffing and warmth to coax it back into shape. Stuff the bag with soft fabric to straighten it out and recreate the shape you want. Then hold a cloth over the area you’re working on to protect it and apply heat from a blow dryer or steamer to the bag. Do not apply direct or high heat—the key is to work slowly and always protect the exterior of the bag. Shop a collection of vintage and contemporary Louis Vuitton bags from some of the world’s top reputable boutiques on 1stDibs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertApril 5, 2022
    If you want to remove the sticky lining in your Louis Vuitton bag, there are several different methods you can use.
