Yesterday, LVMH chairman Bernard Arnault and President Donald Trump cut the ribbon on a 100,000-square-foot Louis Vuitton workshop in Keene, Texas.

Trump attended a celebratory event at the space — named the Louis Vuitton Rochambeau Ranch — on Thursday. He then toured the facility and gave a speech about job creation. Trump was joined by LVMH chairman Bernard Arnault and more than 150 Louis Vuitton employees. Texas Governor Rick Perry was also in attendance.

According to a statement from Louis Vuitton, the company has expanded to Texas to “meet the ever-growing demand for Louis Vuitton products in the American market.” The opening of the workshop comes after the luxury company signed a Trump administration initiative to bring better jobs and bigger paychecks to American workers.

The Louis Vuitton Rochambeau Ranch could create approximately 1,000 jobs over five years. Currently, the leather goods workshop has 150 employees. While the leather utilized at the facility will not be made from Texan cattle, bags produced there will feature "Made in the U.S.A." branding.

The Texas workshop is not Louis Vuitton's first of its kind in the United States; the company already has two in California.
