Besides that, fifty-seven brands across 93 locations in 15 countries will open to the public, and the tours are free. Registration began from 29 Sept. and will end Oct. 3 for one-hour tours on Oct. 14, 15 and 16. There will be five tours each day.

Basically, Les Journées Particulières is designed to show the company’s heritage and craftsmanship and attract new talent to enter a LVMH specialty.

According to Bernard Arnault, chairman and CEO of LVMH, “It offers a rare opportunity to visit the actual locations where the magic occurs and gain precious insights into how our artisans shape dreams that, in turn, make our world a more beautiful place to be in.”

At a time, the facility employed 150 workers making purses and backpacks that sell for $1,400 to $2,200 apiece. The workshop produces popular styles, including Neverfull, Artsy, Iena, Graceful, Palm Spring and Neo Noe.

All U.S. based Louis Vuitton artisans undergo extensive training programs followed by years of apprenticeship to master the craft of making luxury leather goods with the same quality as those produced in Europe.

In July, the company reported almost $36 billion in sales for the first half of 2022, up 28% for the same period last year.

Meanwhile Arnault said, “We approach the second half of the year with confidence, but given the current geopolitical and health situation, we will remain vigilant and count on the agility and talent of our teams to further strengthen our global leadership position in luxury goods in 2022.”

The company has 156,000 employees globally, with 33,000 in the U.S. and 780 retail stores in the U.S. and six production sites.
