The Around the World in 80 Stamps vintage suitcase is perfect for anyone that loves a classic design with a twist! This beautiful brown vintage upcucled suitcase is decorated with real vintage postage stamps from around the world : Rwanda, Pakistan,Guatemala, Nigeria, Yemen and Costa Rica just to name a few! Each stamp has been placed in order to compliment the colour and design of the next one, creating a harmonious and exclusive piece. The stamps have been treated with several coats of special protective varnish/lacquer, a complicated procedure but very effective: you can travel around the world even on rainy days without having to worry about the stamps peeling off! However,do handle with care to keep this bag going a few more decennia!

I have lined the bottom part of the interior with vintage paper. The top part is lined with canvas, which is in good condition, with slight discolouring. I have decided not to touch up any wear marks as I think it contributes to the travelled look of this outstanding piece. The handle is made of leather. Currently without a key, but I'm on a quest to find one!


Dimensions: approx: 35cmx24cmx12cm
