The case measures 41cm/27cm/13cm, has it's original lining and also comes with a key for the lock. It may not stand up to the rigours of the luggage carousel but would make a great overnight case or trinket box.
It costs £190 from Uoldbag who sell their wares here.
With the hundreds of unreliable wheeled luggage pieces around at the moment, there really is nothing quite like a well crafted vintage style case to see you right. This Ostrich Suitcase from Urban Outfitters more than makes up in style and craft what it lacks in modern features.
The faux-ostrich skin outer has great retro looks, while the lining and hardware don't put a foot wrong in the style stakes either. The size is ideal for a weekend bag or holdall, keeping all your bits and bobs looking achingly cool. Simple and chic is all you really need.
It's now available from Urban Outfitters for £48.
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.
