Handmade Luxury Luggage & Leather Accessories
Synonymous with great British design, Globe-Trotter is a luxury travel lifestyle brand producing handcrafted luggage and leather collections.
Established in 1897 by David Nelken in Saxony Germany, the company moved to the UK in 1932 where it has remained ever since. Today, all Globe-Trotter suitcases and travel accessories are handcrafted in Hertfordshire, England by highly skilled artisans using original manufacturing methods and machinery that date back to the Victorian era. For 120 years the brand philosophy has remained unchanged: an uncompromising integrity of craftsmanship.
Over the last 100 years Globe-Trotter cases have travelled to exotic locales with high-profile owners: Captain Robert Falcon Scott travelled with Globe-Trotter on the infamous Antarctic expedition in 1912; HM Queen Elizabeth II chose Globe-Trotter for her honeymoon luggage in 1947 (and continues to use her cases to this day); and Sir Edmund Hilary ascended to first base camp with Globe-Trotter during his conquest of Everest in 1953.
