Louis Vuitton is one of the world's leading international fashion houses, and among the top ten most valuable luxury brands globally. It was founded in 1854 by the eponymous designer and businessman, who gained a reputation as one of the best box-makers and packers in Paris. The French retail company started as a travel goods company by introducing stackable rectangular-shaped trunks to a market in which they had previously been rounded. In 1896, the company launched the signature patented Monogram Canvas - designed as a graphic pattern of quatrefoils, flowers and the LV monogram - which continues to be used selectively till date. Another recognisable exterior of Louis Vuitton bags is the classic Damier Canvas, which looks like a checkerboard pattern. Both these are made of coated cotton canvas that is considered to be more durable and water-resistant than most leathers. Some of Louis Vuitton's most iconic products include the Keepall, a chic travel duffle - shaped bag, and the Neverfull, a lightweight, spacious tote, both of which feature in this auction.
