Louis Vuitton celebrates the 100th anniversary of La Maroquinerie de l’Indre, a leather goods workshop acquired by Louis Vuitton in the 1980s, with an exhibition retracing a century of craftsmanship in the heart of Issoudun in central France.
The complementary stories of the two entities are narrated through 70 emblematic pieces. A Gray Trianon Trunk from the 19th century opens the exhibition which guides visitors through the evolution of the handbag, from the early sac plat to Louis Vuitton’s iconic bags, still crafted today in Issoudun. The unique know-how of craftsmen, their taste for innovation as well as their passion transmitted from generation to generation is at the core of this exhibition.
