Louis Vuitton USA Cloth Tags

Photos: img I was so distressed when I saw these photos early this morning. Apparently there is a bit of change in how Louis Vuitton labels its bags here in the US. America is very strict with its labeling of commercial goods and I guess LV was required to show that they outsource some materials from other countries (which ones, who knows?!). The solution, well, they removed the made in U.S.A from the leather tab and affixed a cotton label somewhere else within the goods (bags, wallets, etc...) I wonder if the rest of the factories (France, Italy & Spain) would soon follow. The leather tab doesn't LVook complete to me and I felt like it was literally SILENCED. I guess, with the huge demand for LV, the company is thinking of ways on how to supply the world. In the back of my mind, I always had the nagging suspicion that some parts of my purchases MAY come from countries where labor conditions are not ideal; that the LV that I LVoe and met five years ago is not the same as it is today...so sad.

  3. I Know the materials come from Vietnam, China, Uruguay. Also you can see under the shopping bag "made in Vietnam" or other countries. Why you can see in China a perfect copy of a LV!?! the materials come from there! maybe you read Deluxe by Dana Thomas, it's very interesting! money everything moves. by all, it's a sad day! goodbye "allure"
