A home for travellers

Inaugurated in 2021 in the heart of London, the new Globe-Trotter two-floor flagship shop is located in Mayfair’s prestigious Burlington Arcade. The iconic brand, founded in 1897 by David Nelken, is famous for handcrafted luxury luggage, very resistant and extremely lightweight: the production still takes place by hand, using some methods and tools from the Victorian era. This symbol of British style offers unique services to their customers: on the shop floor the space includes a fully functional workshop, where you can watch skilful craftspeople repair pieces, while in the basement a cosy seating area features a bar.
