“Inside” Of A Louis Vuitton Bag?

A Typical Handbag Has a Place for Everything You Need On the Go

 

A handbag provides a space for many things for a busying person on the go. Purses don’t have to be ugly, big, bulky, or out of style. A purse or handbag makes a statement while providing portable storage space for everything you need while out and about.

Learn to prioritize what you need so you don’t just have a handbag full of clutter and stuff.

A wallet, phone, and keys are a good start. Nothing is more frustrating than trying to check out with the fancies you purchased at a store and then discover you left your wallet on the counter at home.

Some people like to carry pocket-size tissues just in case of that occasional sneeze or makeup smear.

Depending on the size of your bag, a small cosmetic bag, hair brush, and ties might be in order.

There’s nothing like a notebook and pen to write down numbers, names, or details until you get home and can enter them into your computer.

lining of Louis Vuitton bag

Louis Vuitton Bag Linings

Louis Vuitton bags use various linings and the linings are always high quality. The company uses canvas lining that comes in red or honey, fine monogram patterns, cross-grain leather, tone-on-tone polyester, or microfiber suede.

A Louis Vuitton canvas handbag is a coated canvas bag. The canvas is either Louis Vuitton’s famous Monogram pattern or Damier print. Both canvas styles are durable and water repellent. The Damier Evene Canvas bags are lined with red microfiber. The classic Louis Vuitton Monogram Canvas is generally lined with brown cotton textile lining.

The pattern on each bag is made of tan LV logos on a dark brown background. Epi leather and Mahina handbags are lined with suede-like microfiber suede however some Louis Vuitton bags have been relined with nonauthentic materials. The original material either matches the exterior of the bag or maybe includes lining with a contrasting color. Some of the older bags have a washable lining.

The Louis Vuitton Signature Monogram Canvas

The Luis Vuitton monogram was designed by Georges Vuitton in 1896. It was a branding effort for his luggage business and is now a recognizable mark on each genuine Louis Vuitton bag.

The tail of the “L” is short. The “O” is round not oval and looks larger than the “L”. The “T” should be almost touching and close together.

The LV logo is similar and referred to as the LV monogram.

The signature Monogram pattern is never reversed or done with additional colors. The Monogram pattern is symmetrical from left to right and a counterfeit bag is easily spotted when comparing it to an authentic Louis Vuitton bag.

A genuine Luis Vuitton Bag has complementary Vachetta Leather than is a natural hide that over time becomes a classic darker caramel color. Louis Vuitton doesn’t use plastic or PU leather.

Remember that Monogram pattern bags are never lined with brown suede.

Louis Vuitton damier graphite canvas

The Damier Graphite canvas

This pattern uses a classic block pattern in black and grey. Damier means checkerboard in French. Damier canvas is not leather but a man-made material made of plain-woven fabric. The Damier canvas was reintroduced in 1996 in Ebene color, which is a neutral brown shade. The block patterns always line up.

Upside Down LV

Is this a mistake or do real Louis Vuitton bags have this?

There are original Louis Vuitton handbags with upside-down LVs on the backside. This is because, in the craftsmanship of the bags, Louis Vuitton uses one continuous piece of leather wrapping from the front side to the backside which causes the LV to be upside down. The Speedy bag is a good example of this. It has no seam on the bottom of the handbag.

Date Code Stamp

Louis Vuitton bags have date code stamps if they were crafted after 1980. They are typically located on the interior tags, interior lining, or leather fixtures. Sometimes the date codes are on the exterior in a hidden place and each style of bag has there own date code location.

Reading the Date Stamp

The date code stamp represents when the bag was made and where. The date code is a combination of letters and numbers. The letters stand for the country the bag was made in and the numbers stand for the date. There is a combination of numbers in the date codes that represent different information.

For instance, the Louis Vuitton date codes between 1990 and 2006, the first and third number stands for the month and year the handbag was made and the second and fourth numbers stand for the year. After 2007 the date codes included two letters for where the bag was made and two numbers indicating the week and year the luxury handbag was made.

Date stamps found on a Louis Vuitton bag must be pressed evenly and the spacing needs to be perfectly placed on the right shape tag for the handbag.

Here is a date code table from Couture USA.

There are various country codes. There are ten country codes for Italy BC, BO, CE, FO, PL, MA, RC, RE, SA, and TD. The United States has six country code options depending on where the bag was made.

Louis VuittonNeverfull Bags

The Neverfull was made after 2007. This bag was roomier to hold all the things the on-the-go person needs whether they are out and about during the day or night or both.

The Neverfull is made from a Monogram canvas with natural cowhide trim. It has side laces that create a sleek look and it can be carried on the arm or shoulder.

The Neverfull Monogram has a tan interior with thin brown stripes giving the handbag a sophisticated look. Originally the luxury handbag was made only with Beige lining in Monogram, Damier Azur, and Red lining in Damier Evene. This remained true from 2007 until 2014. The luxury hand bag has a detachable clutch that can be used on its own or attached to the interior of the purse.

Louis Vuitton’s Hardware

The hardware used for Louis Vuitton bags is usually in brass, golden brass or silvery metal. There is a school of thought that Louis Vuitton hardware doesn’t chip, tarnish, or wear off. Unfortunately, this is an urban myth and isn’t true. Most of the hardware used today is plated metal but it does tarnish.

Louis Vuitton Zipper Pull

The zipper pull on genuine Louis Vuitton bags will have a clear lv stamp on the pull. All Louis Vuitton bags manufactured since 1991 have golden brass zipper hardware with the LV logo. Prior to 1991 zippers were Swiss-made, Eclair, or made by other companies. The top pull will have deeper embossing than the bottom pull.

Louis Vuitton zipper pulls do tarnish and they may need to be replaced. Louis Vuitton will replace the zipper pulls and will be done on site free of charge. If the whole zipper needs to be replaced the bag will need to be left while the repair is made.

Louise Vuitton Handles

Vachetta leather is used for Louis Vuitton bag handles. The later is a natural toned cowhide that transforms into a rich honey color as the purse ages. Air contributes to the change in color. The handles have an even layer of glazing applied. The leather handles that have some darkening indicate a real louis vuitton bag with real handles. The authentic Louis Vuitton Alma has five stitches across each of the tabs that secure the handles. The tabs do not have any back and forth or zig zag stitching and the perfection of the stitching is exquisite.

ouis Vuitton Stitches

Louis Vuitton Bag Stitching

Unique to the Louis Vuitton bag is the stitching count never changes. The number of stitches is matched to the location of the stitches. Like explained in the above paragraph, the leather handles on the Alma is exactly five, no more – no less. The stitches are a mustard yellow in color.

Classic bags have stitching the was made with white thread made from linen, dyed yellow and reinforced with beeswax.

Louis Vuitton Bags

In 1859 Louis Vuitton started out on a journey to becoming a company that has become a name that is recognized within the fashion world. By 1925 a dome-shaped designer purse was designed for personal use. The purse was in high demand and today genuine Louis Vuitton purses are carried by many women.

Reaching a younger generation with a need for trendy sophisticated style, Louis Vuitton offered limited addition luxury handbags which quenched the appetites of the customers.

LV bags are available directly through their official website louisvuitton.com and a high-end department store like Saks, Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus, and Bloomingdale. Louis Vuitton does discount their purses. In fact, to protect their products that are rare and desired by many loyal customers, Luis Vuitton burns unsold piece

Unsold LV bags

Authentic Louis Vuitton bags that are not sold are part of the products that are disposed of. Another reason that Louis Vuitton engages in an end of the year burn is because of the “duty drawback” law. The law states that if a product is imported into the US after paying a duty on it is destroyed after customer notification and the duty is paid back to the company.

LV bags are expensive and the duty is about 15-25%. By burning the unsold purses, the company makes up some of their loss by getting the duty back.

Where to Buy a Louis Vuitton Handbag

A real Louis Vuitton handbag can be expensive. They are an exclusive brand that continues to draw customers who want to now one for their own personal use or to add to their Louis Vuitton collection. Vintage Louis Vuitton bags and modern LV handbags in style for 2022 with a dust bag and an authenticity card will both demand a high price.

There are online stores that sell gently used Louis Vuitton bags at a reduced price. The bags are mailed to you after they are paid for. A draw back is the authenticity process used for these bags. Nothing would be worse than paying the price for a gently used bag to find out it is one of the many counterfeit bags on the market today.

Visiting trusted pawn shop may create an option for you to get an authentic bag and save money in the process. Pawn shops buy, sell, and loan against luxury items. This includes luxury handbags. Louis Vuitton bags are often brought into the shops with their dust bags and receipts to secure quick cash. Depending on the situation, they are then placed on the retail floor for sale or listed on the pawn shops’ online store.

Pawn shops must authenticate the bags they take in because if they wrote a loan on fake Louis Vuitton bags they would loose money and customers.

Do Pawn Shops Have Different Kinds of Luxury Bags In Their Inventory?

The fun multi-dimensional statement of nontraditional-shaped luxury handbags. Are you in? Did you know Celine makes triangle bags?

There are so many brands of luxury handbags; Louis Vuitton, Chanel, Gucci, Prada, Loewe, Dior, Balenciaga, and Celine. All come with their own set of perks and characteristics, and there is no denying they all represent excellent design and craftsmanship.

Louis Vuitton purse

Louis Vuitton’s luxury handbags are made by Louis Vuitton, who opened his first store in 1854. It takes about one week to design and create one handbag because they are all handmade. You won’t find new Louis Vuitton handbags “on-sale” or at a “discount” because any bags that are not purchased will be sent back to the factory in France, and then they are either burnt or shredded to maintain their value and class. Louis Vuitton began his career as a trunk maker when he was 16. I bet he didn’t think his bags would be highly sought after back then. All Louis Vuitton bags are waterproof and fireproof not sure how that affects burning them if they are unsold and returned to the factory.

Gucci Backpack

Gucci luxury handbags are an Italian brand with a value of approximately $17.63 billion in 2020. Originally Gucci made briefcases and handbags. Starting as an elevator operator in an upscale hotel in London, he met celebrities like Marilyn Monroe and Winston Churchill. He was inspired by their accessories and decided to start his brand. In 1950 he began using the horsebit logo, and the brand was first seen in saddlebags followed by briefcases and jewelry. Gucci died in 1953. His three sons named Aldo Gucci, Vasco Gucci, and Rodolfo Gucci, took over the business after the death of Guccio Gucci. They promoted the products of the brand through Hollywood celebrities.

All Celine bags are made in Italy, where factory workers earn a livable wage. Each bag is crafted by skilled artisans who take time and meticulous attention to detail to make sure the bags are flawless. They focus on the materials used, stitches, and lining. No luxury handbag can be less than perfect. The materials used in the bags are the most luxurious materials available today. Supple calfskin, lizard skin, natural and unique leather goods are used to make the bags that will present the style associated with the name.

All Celine bags are durable, versatile, and express simple luxurious sophistication.

No matter what clothing a woman picks out to wear to a local art gallery will only look better with a Celine bag.

Celine bags may not be as pricey as the Chanel Classic Flap and Hermès Birkin, but they’re still not cheap. Bags cost between $650.00 to $7500 new. Celine bags are a great investment piece because it is durable and something you can wear for years, and they will retain their resale value.

How to find a Celine bag at a reasonable price.

Another option to shop for a luxury purse is to visit a pawn shop.

Pawnshops have reasonable prices on watches, purses, gold and diamond jewellery, and other luxury items made by various designers. Pawnshops often have luxury purses like Louis Vuitton, Chanel, and Celine. They will also get vintage Celine bags in from time to time. The bags are typically in really great shape and come at a great price.

Unlike big box stores, the prices may be negotiable, which will help save money.

If you decide you want to sell your luxury handbags so you can put that money towards the purchase of different luxury purses, visit your local pawn shop. Most pawnshops will buy luxury purses in good condition, paying extra for those in excellent condition.

The service at a pawn shop includes buying, selling, and pawning (short-term collateral loan).

 

All services are transparent, and pawnbrokers are easy to work with. Sometimes pawnshops run promotions so that you can receive a little extra for your luxury items. It’s worth waiting to bring things in so you can do so when you have more ways to get the cash you need.

A pawn shop will authenticate

A designer purse is only as good as its authenticity, which is why pawn shops are willing to authenticate them. Authentication services at a pawn shop help the customer buy items with confidence.

With Facebook Market Place and Craiglist, many bags are listed for sale with comments about designer brands, but there is no guarantee that they are real. With the amount of money designer handbags cost, you want to ensure your bag is not a fake or replica.

Nothing would be worse than purchasing a designer handbag, taking it home, deciding to have it authenticated, and finding out it is a counterfeit.

Designer purse inventory often changes, so make sure you check back often.

Some pawn shops also have a form or a way to get a quick quote right on their website. After you fill out the web form, you can provide clear pictures and know if the pawnshop will take the designer purse. This will save you from driving into the shop and finding out that they won’t loan or buy the bag.

When you fill out an online form or quote request, you will need to provide as much information as you have, and it helps if you have original receipts. The pawn shop will give you a quote based on the purse’s initial valuation. A final offer is made after the designer handbag is taken into the shop, and seeing the bag in person will assist the broker in authenticating it. Having original receipts and certificates in hand when you visit the store may help you get a higher offer.

The process used by a pawnshop is to protect you as the seller and the pawn shop as the buyer. It also helps future customers know that they are real if they find designer handbags at the pawn shop.

Most pawnshops use an authenticity tool like Entrupy. The broker will go over the process to authenticate each designer handbag.

Remember authentication has as few limitations as possible, but there is still nothing that is one hundred percent when you pawn designer handbags.

Some pawn shops have experts who have received training on the stitching quality and patterns of the designer bags, the material and hardware used in its craftsmanship, the stamping, including the size, shape, font used, and the date code examples.

When you are purchasing a designer handbag, ensure that you understand the process that the bag went through to authenticate it. This information will help you make a better decision about your purchase.

Did you know that the counterfeit industry is worth billions globally? The designer brands with the most knockoffs were Louis Vuitton, which led to apparel and luxury handbag makers investing in anti-counterfeit technologies.

The designer bag resale industry creates opportunities for women to find a bag they want without breaking the bank.
