Globe-Trotter has just added the Carbon Fibre Luggage & Suitcases collection to its iconic list of luggage. The advanced carbon fibre luggage features the engineering of three advanced composite materials to create a light and durable piece of luggage. Globe-Trotter partnered with World Rally Championships, motorsport technologists Prodrive, and others to engineer a modern case. The first piece in the Globe-Trotter Carbon Fibre Luggage & Suitcases collection is “Forged,” a carry-on case featuring ‘chopped’ strands of carbon fibre. Globe-Trotter says each case has a unique irregular finish thanks to forging the carbon fibre under pressure. “Forged” is available in graphite leather with a black lining.
The second piece in the Globe-Trotter Carbon Fibre Luggage & Suitcases collection is another carry-on case dubbed “Twill,” with Globe-Trotter’s iconic ‘2 x 2’ carbon fibre weave and black leather case. It boasts an anthracite microsuede interior. Both models feature corners, handles, and vegetable-tanned leather straps. Globe-Trotter was established in 1897 and became synonymous with the Golden Age of travel. Today, the company applies the same attention to detail and even uses some of the same Victorian-era production methods and machinery in producing its fine luggage.
