Louis Vuitton Dust Bags

Louis Vuitton dust bags

I’ve seen hundreds of Louis Vuitton dust bag over the years and love them!

Some buyers assume if a bag comes with Louis Vuitton dust bag, it must be real. Some other buyers are on the other hand, extremely cautious, questioning whether or not the dust bags come with the bags they bought are authentic.

I totally get it. Louis Vuitton dust bags can be a little bit tricky as they are not always the same! And of course there are so many fake Louis Vuiton dust bags out there too! I’ve had original Louis Vuitton dust bags ranging from 1980s to  the most current ones. There are a lot different sizes of the Louis Vuitton dust bags! The color shades, softness & thickness of the cloth do vary from period to period too.

Louis Vuitton dust bags

Pictured above are a few dust bags representing original Louis Vuitton dust bags from 1980 – current season. Note some of them have LV logo on them while the others have the full name Louis Vuitton printed on them. Some of the larger dust bags have drawstring closure, the others don’t. Dust bags prior to early 2000 have LV (not Louis Vuitton) logo on them. Those Louis Vuitton dust bags have LV logos on them are also made from much thicker cotton cloth that have much darker shades of beige. The wonderful Louis Vuitton drawstring dust bags are made for the bigger Louis Vuitton bags. Thick cotton drawstrings can be brown or blue, but not in any other colours.

Like original Louis Vuitton handbags and luggage, LV dust bags are made in different countries too. Stitches placed on the Louis Vuitton dust bags are even and firm. The Logo printed on Louis Vuittion dust bags is either LV or Louis Vuitton, no additional letters. Logos on the front of the bags are always solid dark brown, not red, not black.

So if you see a “Louis Vuttion dust bag” with red letters “Louis Vuitton Paris” etc etc printed on it, RUN AWAY!:)

Are Louis Vuitton dust bags made in Japan authentic?

This article was written many years ago very quickly and over the years I noticed a lot people ask if Louis Vuitton dust bags made in Japan are authentic. So I’m adding this section to answer this question altogether: Yes! A lot Louis Vuitton dust bags are made in Japan. If you see a dust bag with a white label sewed inside saying “Made in Japan”, chances are it’s more authentic than the ones said “Made in France.”.

As a general guide, Louis Vuitton dust bags are typically made in Italy, Japan and some are made in India.

    I have 3 LV bags from the store and I just purchased one pre owned. The dust bags on the ones from the store all have tags that have codes and “made in” and “100% cotton” written on them. The one I purchased used only says “100% cotton” and has a few numbers down the side. It’s also cut unevenly and feels thinner than the others. It’s softer than the others too. Is it possible it’s fake?

    Hi. I am interested in a Montorgueil PM that I saw on eBay and have started looking for photos online (my own research so to speak) to see if there is any sign of it being non-authentic.
    The bag itself certainly looks like a genuine one but I am just a little concerned about the dustbag (that supposedly came with the bag).
    1. It is a drawstring dust bag – The photos I have found online with other Montorgueil bags all have the flap type dust bags
    2. There is no “label” inside the dust bag, you know, the little white tag that says “100% cotton – made in India, Italy etc”.

    According to the seller, it was bought in Canada some time ago.

    Can this bag/dust bag still be authentic, given that MOST (if not all it seems, montorguiel bags probably) come with flap dust bags but this one, drawstring.
    AND the dustbag as no “tag” inside it…

    Need a little guidance here!

    I have 2 LV dust bag 20×18 with draw strings. LV spelled out in black with thick brown braided ties. No tags in or on the dust bags. Interior stitching seems to be straight and tight. Material a little on the thin side. Tan to tan yellow in color. Bottom corners squared off. I know the person that owned these dust bags and she never had anything fake. Is it possible to prove authenticity or is it just by the discription and is there any fault in my discription above?
