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.
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.
