Monogram Canvas

A symbol of Louis Vuitton since 1896, the Monogram canvas was created by the son of Louis Vuitton, George Vuitton. He began a campaign to build the company into a worldwide corporation, exhibiting the company's products at the Chicago World's Fair in 1893. In 1896, the company launched the legendary Monogram Canvas and made the worldwide patents on it. Its graphic symbols, including quatrefoils and flowers (as well as the LV monogram), were based on the trend of using Japanese and Oriental designs in the late Victorian era. The patents later prove to be successful in stopping counterfeiting.

Monogram canvas combines durability, flexibility and lightness. It is entirely impermeable and highly resistant to surface scratches. It is perfectly suitable for all kinds of uses: daily, business and travel. Monogram is available in a complete collection of timeless styles enriched each year by new models for both men and women.
