Description

Globe-Trotter was founded by David Nelken in Saxony, Germany, in 1897. Every Globe-Trotter suitcase is made by hand on original Victorian machinery at the Globe-Trotter factory in Hoddesdon, Hertfordshire. The suitcases are formed from a special material called ‘vulcanised fibreboard’, 14-layers of specially bonded paper, coloured to specification. Each case is riveted, lined and leather trimmed by hand, from start to finish. Globe-Trotter has been used over the past 116 years by an enviable client list, including HM Queen Elizabeth II, Winston Churchill and Captain Robert Falcon through to modern day style icons such as Kate Moss, Daniel Craig, Dita Von Teese and Sir Terence Conran.

This suitcase is a Centenary series 33" Extra Deep with Wheels in Centenary Orange & Tan.

Donated by: Globe-Trotter
