Fondation Louis Vuitton



Cher Louis, when you ran away from home,

at age 13, in 1835, walking 292 miles

to Paris, taking two years to get there,

sleeping in stables along the way,

finally apprenticing to box-maker,

then  starting your own stack-able

trunk company, which got you

appointed box-maker and packer

to the Empress under Napoleon III,

did you ever imagine that a museum

would result, looking like a handbag?
