The Orient collection transports you to a bygone world of glamorous travel, inspired by the world’s most famous luxury train; the Orient Express.
The cases are beautifully hand-finished in a Japanese ‘urushi’ lacquer in traditional ‘Benitame’ red with contrasting gold locks and plush lining. They are truly exquisite and is the only collection of luggage to feature an urushi lacquered finish. Urushi, the rust coloured sap drawn from the urushi tree native to Japan, has been used in traditional Japanese arts as far back as 4000BC and bestows the Orient with an incomparable beauty and aesthetic.
To create the Orient’s remarkable exterior, each suitcase has several layers of urushi lacquer applied to the surface of the vulcanised fibreboard, before a final coating of clear gloss accentuates the extraordinary natural beauty of this material. Since the appearance of the urushi will vary according to the condition in which it dries, each Orient suitcase carries its own unique patina and features a suede-like interior lining.
