Lately, we have been seeing a lot more Goyards coming into our head office. We couldn’t have been more excited about it!
Goyard is a French luxury leather goods and trunk company. It was established in 1853 in Paris, making it a year older than Louis Vuitton (shocking!). Even though it has a long established history, it isn’t as recognizable as household luxury names like Hermes, Gucci, Chanel and even Louis Vuitton. This is due to the brand’s strong dislike towards marketing, interviews and mass production. However, the brand was quickly adored by the French upper-class.
Goyard is famous for its revolutionary canvas in the train-making industry. The canvas is a blended cloth of linen and cotton and has a similar appearance to leather. Goyards canvas is soft, durable, lightweight and waterproof. The canvases were all originally hand painted with the adjacent chevrons from the letter “Y” (like Y in the middle of Goyard). The pilled dot pattern represents log stacks – fun fact, the Goyard family’s previous log-driving trades.
Goyard has been spotted by many celebrities, like Kim Kardashian, Gwyneth Paltrow and even members of the royal family. It’s quite difficult to find the current price online for Goyard. Goyard does not list them on the website – in fact, they don’t even do online sales. They don’t even state the price via email or phone either.
Not to worry, we have some Goyards still available (with the price listed).
