Definition of Suitcase:

The suitcase is the evolution of the bag, it protects its contents thanks to a rigid frame.

The luggage is rectangular in shape, generally between 40 and 80 cm in length.

The difference between a trunk is a suitcase is not the size, but the number of handle.

A trunk is worn at least 2 hands, the suitcase is worn with one hand.

 

The suitcase is accepted by most companies as hand luggage to be put in cabins on trains, boats, carts, or cars. They can also easily be stacked on trolleys or in box wagons.

 

There are 3 ranges of Louis Vuitton suitcases and luggage:

 

The range Leather:

Rigid series with socket fully covered with leather. The corners are also leather. The leather can be vegetable tanned cowhide leather, leather, morocco, exotic .. Leather handle.

The English are the specialists in leather suitcases. The first produced by Louis Vuitton back to the 1880s / 1890s, precisely to compete with the English.

 

The Loziné range:

Rigid series with covers (or protection strips) on the edges. Coins, buckles, security lock with strictly personal number. Leather handle.

 

The semi-rigid range also called Stratos:

Semi-flexible series with rigid frame. Corners, handle, reinforcement strips on the lid and bottom in natural leather. Brass loops. Lock closure. Interior fabric.

Appeared in the 1930s in search of lightness, this luggage is democratized in the 50/70 years they are the ancestors of modern luggage fiber or plastic.

Very light but not strong because of their cardboard structure. They are of little interest to collectors.
