Back in 1970’s, Louis Vuitton was really popular in the United States. All their factories had always been in France, but LV simply could not keep up with tits growing market in the US. For this reason. during a period from around 1976 through 1991, the French Company manufactured bags under a special license from Louis Vuitton


From 1995 to mid-2012, Louis Vuitton bags made in the US were stamped with “LOUIS VUITTON PARIS made in U.S.A.”. When authenticating Louis Vuitton, matching the factory code letters of the date code with the country listed on the “made in” stamp is essential.
