The length of the fishing rod trunk is so important that the manufacturing workshop in Asnières sur Seine Louis Vuitton had to use 2 pieces of canvas and make a connection in the central axis of the trunk. Indeed, the canvas strips measure 1m40 wide. And like all monogrammed trunks, the logo must be horizontal, perfectly legible when the trunk is put down. The connection on the canvas is a unique case!
