Giving the gift of travel is never an easy task. Booking the whole experience requires you avoid picking dates that may be a problem for the recipient, while giving a simple voucher always seems impersonal. The perfect pieces of luggage, however, are a safer bet when it comes to giving the gift of travel, whether that is a Christmas gift or for another occasion.
Heralding from South East Smaland in Sweden, Alstermo Bruk create what one might call refined luggage. You would, however, expect that given the company is now over 200 years old. And it’s that focus on refinement, both by way of heritage and quality, that sets Alstermo Bruk apart in a world awash with generic black cases.
Amongst the classic lines of Alstermo Bruk suitcases and briefcases, it’s their Atlas range would look particularly chic in any airport lougne.
Pictured above in African Orange, the Atlas suitcases are all handmade, with attention to detail paid to everything from the wooden frame to the leather detailing.
The Alstermo Bruk Atlas cases, along with a host of others including bespoke cases, are available from their website and web store.
