An artist made a toilet from £11,000 worth of Louis Vuitton bags -- and it's now on sale for £75,000

Lv loo thumbInstagram/ilmagore‘The Loo-uis Vuitton Toilet’ is made of 24 monogrammed bags including a $US3,000 suitcase.

LA-based artist Ilma Gore has made a toilet out of $US15,000 (£11,400) worth of Louis Vuitton bags — and it’s now on sale for $US100,000 (£76,244).

“The Loo-uis Vuitton Toilet” is a collaboration between online US designer retailer Tradesy and Gore.

Gore worked for three months, using 24 different bags valued at $US15,000 total — including a $US3,000 suitcase — to make the “fully functioning potty,” according to the item’s online listing. 

The final product was recently featured in the Californian Tradesy showroom — and it’s now available to buy for $US100,000. It will ship from Santa Monica, with delivery only available for buyers from Los Angeles.

As for why she did it? Gore posted her creation on Instagram with the caption: “I wondered what 15k of authentic @louisvuitton bags looked like as a fully functional toilet, so I made this.”
