Making of a Suitcase at the Globe-Trotter Factory


A video highlighting the making of a suitcase at the Globe-Trotter factory.

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.

Via Brog?
Seems all I have time for these days is a video between breaks. After tomorrow, a lull.
