Globe-Trotter launches first store in India
January 7, 2013: Globe-trotter, a British luxury luggage brand established in 1897, has launched their first store in New Delhi in India. With prices starting at INR 40,000 for a suitcase and used by the likes of Sir Winston Churchill and Queen Elizabeth II, Daniel Craig, Kate Moss, Dita von Teese and Kylie Minogue, the brand has many loyalists in its list.
Founded by Englishman, David Nelken, in Saxony Germany, the company ‘returned’ to the UK in 1901 where it has remained ever since. Globe-Trotter cases have been used over the last 100 years by an enviable client list including Captain Robert Falcon Scott of the infamous Antarctic expedition in 1912 and Sir Edmund Hilary during his conquest of Everest in 1953.
Hand made by Globe-Trotter in Broxbourne, Hertfordshire using original manufacturing methods, each case is uniquely constructed from vulcanised fibreboard. 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.
