Style: Globe-Trotter The Making Of A Suitcase

by Edgebloom

“Hand made by Globe-Trotter in Broxbourne, Hertfordshire using original manufacturing methods. Each case is uniquely constructed from vulcanised fibreboard; a special material invented in Britain during the 1850’s consisting of multiple layers of bonded paper. Handles are produced by the leather team who also form the iconic Globe-Trotter corners over a period of 5-days on antique Victorian presses.” GlobeTrotter
