The Noé bucket bag harks back to a design from 1932. A Champagne producer asked Gaston-Louis Vuitton to develop a sturdy, stylish bag in which he could transport five bottles of bubbly. This model in body-friendly Monogram canvas retains key features of the original – the iconic shape, generous volume, drawstring closure – but is made for modern life. The leather strap adjusts for comfortable shoulder or cross-body wear.

Louis Vuitton Noé Monogram Canvas
LV introduced the Noé bag in 1932 when a champagne house contacted LV to make a bag that would hold 5 bottles of champagne. The bag still serves this function - 4 bottles with the bottom down and the 5th inverted and nestled between the others. This drawstring bag comes in two sizes - the Noé, and the smaller Petit Noé. The name Noé is French for Noah, who was not only famous for loading animals on the Ark two by two, but for his ability to consume wine. It was Georges Vuitton, Louis Vuitton's son, who decided in 1896 to carry on the adventure begun by his father by designing the famous Monogram Canvas. At the time, to foil counterfeiters, he created a canvas bearing bold graphics, a pattern that was instantly recognizable. The unique pattern is composed of flowers, a universal and timeless symbol, and the entwined Louis Vuitton initials. The pattern was based on the trend of using Japanese and Oriental designs in the late Victorian era. The Monogram fabric is crafted out of durable vinyl coated canvas. This Louis Vuitton Noe Monogram GM Brown is the perfect bag for the person looking for a large shoulder tote.
