Hand made by Globe-Trotter in Broxbourne, Hertfordshire using original manufacturing methods. Each case is uniquely constructed from vulcanised fibreboard; a special material invented in Britain during the 1850s 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.
Globe-Trotter cases have been used over the last 100 years by an enviable client list. Captain Robert Falcon Scott travelled with Globe-Trotter on the infamous Antarctic expedition in 1912. Sir Winston Churchill used a Globe-Trotter Dispatch Case during his position as Chancellor of the Exchequer in 1924. H.R.H. Queen Elizabeth II chose Globe-Trotter for her honeymoon luggage in 1947 (and continues to use her cases to this day). Sir Edmund Hilary ascended to first base camp with Globe-Trotter during his conquest of Everest in 1953.
