How do you take a grill to the highest level in terms of design and trend? In the context of a project of the Swiss grill manufacturer "azado" exactly this question was illuminated and one of the best models of the house was provided with details of canvas and leather of the French traditional company Louis Vuitton. As a basis for the "azado 55K" served, in addition to the grill model "el maestro", a Louis Vuitton Keepall in size 55 from the year 1989. The canvas of such bags forgives much over the years of intimate love, the leather sometimes becomes brittle and the hardware dull. In exactly such a, slowly somewhat questionable. Condition was the bag made by Secondhandbags provided Louis Vuitton Keepall 55. To be able to step out of the shadow of unwearability, this project was probably also for the Bag itself an excellent opportunity to be allowed to find a new task after years of travel and effort!

In a charming vintage Condition with a light tan complexion we carry these bags of course! Still in their original form as Bag the popular models from Louis Vuitton's Keepall range look like this:

Now for the grill! The canvas of the Bag was ultimately used to adorn the hose, handles, and shelf of the gas grill with a sturdy, hand-stitched cover. The design of the "azado 55K" from St. Gallen is also reminiscent of azado's first prototype from 2010. The legacy is proudly carried on by the "el maestro" model to this dayDetails of monogram canvas and leather now harmoniously complete the picture in the still of the popular bags. The Louis Vuitton luggage tag of the Bag was allowed to keep its shape and floats above everything. The details underline the valuable material appearance of the grill very nice.

The stitching was done with an original coated Louis Vuitton threadas it is also used in the production of Louis Vuitton bags.

It does not get any better than this.
