Globe-Trotter "Orient" 28" Suitcase. The Orient is 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 is hand-crafted by a single, master Japanese artisan working from his studio in Tokyo. Here he hand lacquers the vulcanised fibreboard with several layers of urushi, before applying a final coating of clear gloss to accentuate the extraordinary natural beauty of this material. Since the appearance of the urushi will vary according to the conditions in which it dries, each Orient suitcase carries its own unique patina and features the finest champagne coloured silk lining.
These Distinguished Suit Cases were originally used by explorers who travelled the world by Cruise Liners. This one being 28" high when standing. " 17” Wide & 10" Deep. (75cm x 42cm x 24cm) It weighs 5.0 KG's. Extendable handle with two additional leather handles. It has brass locks with keys.
