MARCO. On the go for one or two days.

The made-to-order carbon fibre travel case to carry everything you need for a full day or an overnight trip negotiating and closing deals.

Based on a bespoke commission completed for a hard-driving, well-travelled entrepreneur, the Marco is sized so it can be taken as a carry-on luggage on commercial airlines. It comes with a West of England woollen flannel garment pouch for discreetly holding a change of clothes.

The shell is moulded carbon fibre, making the Marco lighter and stronger than the traditional wooden shell. To learn more about our carbon fibre, go here. A coated cotton canvas covers the exterior to provide a more restrained appearance. The interior reveals the herringbone weave carbon, custom-woven, hand-laid and tinted in Ruby Red.

The shell cordovan handle and corners are selected, cut, stitched and finished by hand. We stitch using 100% linen thread that is first passed through a block of beeswax.

The estimated delivery lead time is 12 weeks. Price on application.

The Marco is handmade one at a time in Germany.

We offer discreet personalisation that does not scream but instead, whispers. Please enquire for further details.
