Our Brand & Heritage

Our History: Our Very Own Corner of History

Established in 1897, our cases are synonymous with the Golden Age of travel. And to this day, the shape and style of many of our products remain unchanged. Production still takes place by hand in England. We apply the same attention to detail, using some of the same production methods and machinery of the Victorian era. Possibly our most timeless and enduring innovation is Vulcanised Fibreboard. An unfathomable feat of strength that is yet to be imitated successfully and has kept our cases incredibly strong but impossibly lightweight for 125 years and counting.

Our Carriers: In the Hands of the Finest Characters

We are shaped by the characters who carry us. In the past, leaders such as the late Queen Elizabeth II and Winston Churchill, and famed explorers like Edmund Hillary have all put their mark on the world with a Globe-Trotter in hand. While modern day icons Daniel Craig, David Beckham, Kate Moss and Emma Watson all choose Globe-Trotter to accompany them on life’s adventures.

Our mission

A Companion to Discovery

Adventure is far less about where you go and much more about how you carry yourself. And of course what case you carry. At Globe-Trotter we believe the more open you are, the more the world opens up to you. And the more your character is shaped by the places you see, the people you meet and the opportunities you grasp. So, what might begin with a new suitcase, is really the beginning of the voyage of a lifetime.

Our Partners

Together we can go a lot further

While we are proud of our heritage, our compass points firmly to the future. We are inspired by what next and where to? It’s a sentiment reflected in each of our partnerships and exquisite collaboration collections. From luxury fashion houses like Hermes and Gucci, to timeless classics like Turnbull and Asser and Tiffany & Co. And perhaps the most perfect pairing of all, our ongoing adventures with another British icon, 007.

Designed to Stand the Test of Time

Pushed to the limit over the past 120 years

Our distinctive aesthetic combined with the enduring durability of utilising a hard-shell suitcase like design has truly stood the test of time. We pioneered the use of vulcanised fibreboard– a material renowned for its strong, yet lightweight quality – back in 1897, and continues to use it in all of our suitcases to this day.
