The Mexican government turned to Louis Vuitton with an official letter.
“We were surprised to learn that a chair was presented in the Dolls by Raw Edges collection, where elements of embroidery were used by the indigenous people of Hidalgo, which is considered the intellectual property of the Tenango de Doria community,” the statement said. – Each pattern is unique and inimitable. And at the same time, it is the result of the continuous work of many generations that transmit their knowledge and skills, but above all creativity. ”
The country's culture minister Alejandra Frausto offered the fashion house to hold a trilateral meeting with representatives of the indigenous people of Mexico and decide how the brand can legally use the intellectual property of the residents of Hidalgo. So far, Louis Vuitton has not commented on the situation, but the $ 18,200 chair has already been removed from the official website of the brand and in all social networks.
Earlier, the Mexican government accused the brand Carolina Herrera of using patterns of indigenous peoples of the country.
