Working under the delightful name of U Old bag, textile designer Lisa Tiley creates bespoke products using reclaimed and vintage materials, which includes a range of Vintage Decoupage Suitcases.
A variety of old suitcases have been given a new lease of life by being decorated with vintage magazine images, then varnished with a protective lacquer to make it waterproof. Each piece is unique with the current range including weekend size suitcases and vanity cases. The prices range from about £160 up to £255, which isn’t particularly cheap, but perhaps worth it if only to avoid any confusion on the luggage carousel again.
You can buy online from U Old Bag’s Esty store.
