Louis Vuittton. Papillon 30. Vintage 1970s. The French Luggage Company.
What does The French Luggage Company mean? In the 1970s, in order to meet demand in the United States, Louis Vuitton had a factory in the United States to manufacture some of its most popular styles of the time. The name of this factory, which was actually manufacturing their own pieces since the 1800s, was called The French Luggage Company. This is why you will see a differentiation in some of the hardware and accents, for example Talon zippers and coated leather.
