Fox Brothers Week - Globe-Trotter Case
Liberty's National Treasures -
Globe-Trotter Suitcase Lined with Fox Brothers' Glen Check
A nice story behind our final offering for Fox Brothers Week. Liberty recently launched its National Treasures campaign to raise money for a children's charity. National Treasures brings together well-known Brits and well known British brands to create one-off pieces.
The Fox Brothers contribution is a collaboration, through co-owner Deborah Meaden, with Globe-Trotter to create a very limited edition of 10 leather suitcases lined with Fox Brothers cloth.
Globe-Trotter, established in 1857, makes the suitcases by hand in England and use the same techniques and materials as the originals. The case produced for Liberty's National Treasures has a Colonial Brown vulcanised fibreboard outer with Cocoa Leather trim, and is lined with Fox Brothers’ Glen Check.

If you consider yourself a British classic or a hidden gem - artist, manufacturer, pie-maker, designer, juggler whatever - drop me a line and maybe we can put together another special week at Tweed Towers.
