Louis Vuitton invests in sourcing in Tuscany




Louis Vuitton invests in an industrial perspective in Tuscany, in the name of leather goods. According to what appears, the French brand is in the final stages for the project to build a bag factory in the Florentine municipality of Pontassieve, in the Sieci area, south of the Tuscan capital. Also according to rumors, the Lvmh flagship brand has signed a preliminary agreement with the owners of the land, pending the urban planning procedure and the authorizations for the construction of the factory, which could be completed within two years. In addition to this terrain, the brand is also considering other options in the area.


Once the investment has been completed, the maison would in fact add a new and important piece in terms of sourcing in the region, given that it has been present for some time, always south of Florence, with a Louis Vuitton bag and accessories development building in Incisa. in Val d'Arno. To further support the news of the Group's desire to invest in the Florence area, also in other districts than the historic one for the leather goods of Scandicci (where it is present with Dior), during the first edition of Show me a Florence, an event dedicated to the professions of excellence in November a year ago, the general manager Toni Belloni had spoken, among others, of having new investments in the study, with a scouting in collaboration with the Tuscany Region. The new project being defined would thus be the further step of a close link with the Tuscan territory, also considering that, last week, the new Fendi factory was inaugurated, a leather goods manufacturer in Bagno a Ripoli (Florence) and that the new Givenchy pole, another brand of Bernard Arnault's colossus, should arrive in the area shortly (in the former factory of the Roman label before the move).
