French Business Magnate. Louis Vuitton was born in the Jura region of France in the year 1821 and is the founder of the Vuitton company. In 1835 he moved to Paris, a voyage he made by foot. In 1854 Vuitton started his own company as a luggage manufacturer. His introduction of flat-bottom trunks with trianon canvas which were light in weight became soon a rage in the market. As a reaction against the copy of his work he changed the trianon design to beige and brown stripes in 1876 and in 1888 he changed the design to the famous Damier Canvas. Apart from luxury leather items Luis Vuitton also started manufacturing other fashion accessoires, pre-a-porter and jewellery. The company of Louis Vuitton continued to be passed along through the Vuitton family. In the year 1987 the Vuitton company merged with Moet & Chandon and Hennesy to form the conglomerate LVMH. Louis Vuitton died in the year 1892. (bio by: Rik Van Beveren)
