Louis Vuitton came to Paris from the Jura region when he was 14 years old. In the middle of the 19th century he invented the flat trunk, a revolution enabling luggage to be stacked in train stations. Today his great-grandson, Patrick-Louis Vuitton here in his sitting room continues the family tradition. The Vuitton family house is still adjacent to the factory where they make their suitcases which take over a hundred hours to make.
