How is a Louis Vuitton bag made?
The French artisan Jacques Royer showed the very interesting manufacturing process of the Petite Malle handbag, a Louis Vuitton it-bag.
Mr. Royer, who has been working for the maison for 16 years, shared details of the process – a bag is made up of 120 pieces and produced by a single artisan, consuming 35 man-hours.
Oh, and the gloss is not varnish coating! It is the outcome of a stone polishing process – in this case, the amethyst.
