Louis Vuitton chose Italy for its shoes. When the fashion house began its line of pret-a-porter shoes they asked: where are the best suppliers? Where are the best master craftworkers? Where are the best shoemaking training facilities? The answer to all these questions is Italy. And so in 2005 Louis Vuitton, a worldwide symbol of French luxury, opened a manufacturing facility in the Veneto in Italy's northwest. This modern factory uses the most advanced techniques and technologies, and nothing is imported from outside Italy: the shoes are conceptualised, designed and produced under the same roof.
