Travel in style with this 4 piece luggage set with an EVA-molded body has 1200 denier polyester fabric for durability. A Globe-Trotter suitcase is unique in the world because of the baseboard used to form its body. It is a process that was invented in the 1850s and has rarely been copied due to the difficulty and expense of replicating it. During my visit to the Globe-Trotter factory in Broxbourne, Hertfordshire, I watched a suitcase being made from start to finish.
The board is the only item not made in the factory – everything else is woven, printed or shaped on site.
There is a Victorian guillotine, for example, that is used to cut the linings of the cases.
The actual making of a suitcase is fairly simple, with the board being moulded into shape and then set around a wooden frame. I’ve admired these for some time, but am skeptical about their ability to survive the baggage mill when traveling. Timeless, innovative and elegant, CHATELET is made from resistant 100% virgin BAYER Makrolon® polycarbonate.


Made of 14 sheets of paper and glue, it is compressed under pressure into a vulcanised material that is lightweight yet extremely sturdy.
Today, there are very few imitators of Globe-Trotter and the company closely guards the source of its production.
Although a suitcase can theoretically be made in a few hours, the leather corners of the case have to be soaked, pressed, left to dry and then pressed again – which takes five days.
Corners and some exterior sections are riveted together by eye, the lining is carefully cut and glued in, and then a metal strip is wrapped around the exposed edges.
Handles used to be made by Wellwyn, a local operator, before it went bust, as did the wooden frames. The board retains a small amount of moisture when it is first used, in order to help it mould into shape. This is such an iconic brand and the product is practical,very well made, and beautiful as well. Nice story about Globe Trotter: it is the company of my brother in law :-), if you ever get to Holland do visit my secondhand designer bags shop! The unique Stop and Go brake system , activated with a single knob, locks the front wheels to prevent the bag from drifting away, while allowing to roll it on two back wheels.
Although there are few that would want to go through the process of recreating a Globe-Trotter, they could start to do so if they could find an appropriate source.


Unless pre-pressed corners happen to be available for a particular style, the construction time is therefore 5-6 days. The presses for those leather corners (above) are also iron and have WW2 stamps on them (Globe-Trotter made military equipment during WW2 and was therefore allowed to retain machinery that would otherwise have been melted down). The latter are now made by a Globe-Trotter carpenter, who also made many of the worktables around the factory.
That moisture will gradually leave the suitcase (hence all the linings being made from breathable materials).
I’d say that Globetrotter is british manufacturing at it’s best,well done ladies and gentlemen and thank you! And sewing machines dating from the 1920s are used to stitch together the four layers of leather in the suitcase handles.
