The UK’s lockdown roadmap is nearing its destination, London is opening up and everyone is looking ahead to a summer of escapism. Be it local or overseas, adventure awaits and a key accessory for every conscious traveler is of course luggage. That’s why we are delighted to share that our partners at Globe-Trotter have launched an exclusive new luggage range in partnership with Elephant Family.
These luxury suitcases are instantly recognisable as quintessentially Globe-Trotter, with the interior of each lid embellished by Rebecca Campbell’s ‘Cup of Rosie Lee’. This beautiful illustration was inspired by the landscapes of India, experienced in all their glory whilst Rebecca was on Elephant Family’s epic adventure Travels To My Elephant. The pinnacle of luxury travel-meets-conservation, Travels To My Elephant sees a band of intrepid racers travel by rickshaw across the wilds of India, recreating our late great Founder Mark Shand’s journey on his beloved elephant Tara.
Thanks to the immense generosity of our partners at Globe-Trotter, a percentage of sales from this luggage range will go towards our work to achieve human-wildlife coexistence across India. From expanding protected areas and securing wildlife corridors to saving lives with WhatsApp and preventing panic around pachyderms, our work is creating landscapes that enable people and animals to share space.
Whether you’re travelling abroad or making the most of our own shores this summer, we encourage you to be conscious and consider the impact your decisions have on the environment. Travel slower and avoid air travel where possible, stay longer and soak up every last drop of culture, and of course make sure your accessories match your sustainable travel choices with Globe-Trotter’s new range.
The collection includes luggage in four different sizes in a ‘Cloud Grey’ coloured vulcanised fibreboard body with tonal leather trim and polished chrome hardware.
Embellishing the interior of each lid is Rebecca Campbell’s A Cup of Rosie Lee – a beautiful illustration of a herd of elephants walking across a landscape.
Each style comes with a bright green Elephant Family branded recycled leather luggage tag.
