With this unique and strong luggage strap/wrap, there'll be no confusion as to whose bag is whose -- yours is the one with the black and white zebra striped luggage wrap. Even if your suitcase or bag looks like everyone else's on the baggage carousel, you'll spot yours in a jiffy as no-one else will have your WILD luggage wrap.

The backing fabric is in a matching black, and I fused interfacing between the fabric layers for extra stability. I also top-stitched the entire piece in matching black rayon thread, then added another more stitching for even more stability (one wrap has 5 extra vertical lines of stitching; the other has spiky free motion stitching across the entire strap)

I added 10" long strips of Velcro (hook and loop) so the wrap is easily adjustable for the size of your suitcase. And so that no-one swears at you, I stitched the hook side to the underneath part of the strap so that it won't catch on other people's stuff when in the baggage hold or on the baggage carousel.

Please note: I always use satin/zigzag stitch for securing hook and loop fastenings -- single running stitches just aren't strong enough to put up with the constant ripping open that these sort of fasteners have to deal with.

It's easy to use your luggage wrap -- just pass it around your suitcase and through the handles, pull the strap nice and tight, then press the hook and loop ends together. And when you get where you're going, just fold or roll your strap and put it inside your suitcase ready for next time. (If you find the strap is too long for your suitcase, either loop it a couple of times around a handle you don't use, or take a couple of large safety pins to secure the slack.)

BONUS!!! I've added a clear plastic flexible insert for your business/ID card! Hint: For added privacy, turn your card over so the back faces out.

In addition to being very practical, these luggage wraps make great stocking stuffers! And are an ideal gift for anyone who travels.

For totally wild coordinating luggage, match this wrap with these other luggage accessories in the same fabric:

Dimensions: approx 3.5 x 90 in (9 x 229 cm)

These wraps are fully washable (because of the plastic insert, I suggest hand washing), and are made in a smoke-free, pet-free, child-free home.
