I made the exterior print of this suitcase by hand cutting tiny pieces of vintage maps nd arranging them in a dahlia style flower with foliage. The inside has been covered in vintage maps as well- this case has mainly maps of the USA and major US cities so you could even keep track of your travels on the maps inside. It has been carefully coated in a finish to make it durable and fully functional for use in your next travel adventure.

the story:
She was sitting on the train reading Hemingway with perfect posture and a small suitcase stashed neatly between her feet. She never once let her eyes wander although his eyes wandered repeatedly from the newsprint in his hand to the woman across the cabin from him. She seemed familliar in a distant way, like they could have been close if only they'd met on another day; if only he'd gather the gumption to talk to her. Then abruptly she snapped open the lid of her case, stashed the novel inside and made her way off the train at the very next stop.

item details:
This case has a bright red hard plastic exterior with a padded handle and silver tone hardware. There are locks on the case and it comes with its original key! The inside is partially lined in the original creamy floral fabric and the rest has been covered in vintage maps. There are elastic loops in the lid of the case in case you want to secure some of your items. Perfect for traveling, storage or display!

Label: Mind Over Matter by Stephanie Winger (original maker is American Tourister)
Size: 18.5 x 13 x 5” this case is the perfect size for a carry on but would also make a unique briefcase or laptop case!
Condition: This one of a kind suitcase grew from a piece of vintage luggage so although it is clean and in great upcycled vintage condition, you should not expect something "shiny brand new". The silver tone hardware has developed a patina and there are some scuffs and marks that are natural for a piece of vintage luggage as well as some yellowing and water marks on the fabric part of the interior. It is ready to be used in all sorts of weather but should still be treated kindly and not submerged in water.


This case can be purchased alone but it also matches this one- if you'd like both of them the price for the set is $120:
