Synonymous with great British design, Globe-Trotter is the very definition of hand made luxury luggage. A modern day classic, Globe-Trotter suitcases offer a uniquely strong, yet lightweight, functionality with an iconic aesthetic. Since 1897 the brand philosophy has been a simple one; never to compromise the integrity of the craftsmanship. It is this value that has made Globe-Trotter one of the most loved, and sought after, suitcases with generations past and present.
Every Globe-Trotter suitcase is hand crafted in England by highly skilled artisans following the original manufacturing methods that were established in 1897. The suitcases are formed from a unique material called vulcanised fibreboard, which was invented in Britain in the 1850s; this material is as light as aluminium yet as strong as the finest leather. The exact formula for this material is one of the most closely guarded secrets of Globe-Trotter. Due to the nature of their production Globe-Trotter cases can only be produced in limited quantities, making them one of the world’s most exclusive suitcases. Each piece produced is truly an antique of the future.
For over a century Globe-Trotter has been used by some of the world’s most influential individuals from Royalty to explorers. In recent years Globe-Trotter has been discovered by a new generation of international travellers who prize strength and security, alongside beauty and elegance, in their luggage. This new generation has demanded the input of fashion, fun and excitement into collections. Globe-Trotter now utilises the visions and ideas of international and in-house designers, whilst maintaining the old virtues of strength and durability.
As Globe-Trotter cases spend their years travelling the world with their owners they develop a unique character and charm, and simply get better with age.
