If you're someone who travels for business on a regular basis, or enjoys traveling overseas every so often, owning a suitcase that is both fashionable and solid could be considered a necessity. Trendy New York luggage/suitcase brand Sevendays has opened its flagship store in Taipei. At the same time, the store now also has an exclusive British handmade Globe-Trotter luggage for sale. This nicely-crafted luggage series was first created in 1897, and its elegant exteriors and practical features have made it hugely popular among English royalty. Some of the accessories and related merchandise for the Globe-Trotter series include an office carrying briefcase, of a style once used by Sir Winston Churchill. Globe-Trotter luggage was also previously used by Queen Elizabeth II on her honeymoon. --By Josie Wu, translated by Ann Lee
A. This classic-looking luggage is only available with limited-edition designs, and is created with a patented, environmental-friendly material called Vulcan Fiber, which makes the entire suitcase lightweight but sturdy. This series also comes with designs in various sizes.
B. Each Globe-Trotter suitcase is made solely by hand and, with its patented-Vulcan Fiber technology, it is actually lighter in weight than leather. Ash wood, also used in making of the suitcase, provides a frame that allows the entire suitcase to stand stably on the ground and increases durability, so it won't change shape as time goes by. The eight corners, wrapped with real leather, lessen the chances of the luggage being damaged or worn when it is been thrown around or dragged through your travels. The leather strap and the fine-quality cloth used inside the luggage also adds to the value of the Globe-Trotter series.
C. Sevendays is a New York brand with designs and clothing for younger males and females. This trendy label also has an around-the-clock online-shopping store, plus physical stores around town. The customer service here is friendly and professional. Furthermore, Sevendays also supports the environmental protection related campaigns, using specially chosen organic cotton and other natural fabrics to make its products.
