The Swedish king of luxury handmade luggage.
Boasting one of the most stylish luggage and briefcase collections in the world is Alstermo Bruk, Sweden’s oldest manufacturer of classic quality suitcases and trunks. Established over two centuries ago in 1804, Alstermo Bruk is a heritage brand like no other. All their cases are handcrafted in Sweden, with an unrivalled attention to detail.
Each trunk is exclusively numbered on a brass plate, wooden framed, lined with linen fabric and decorated with Italian organic leather trimmings which are first dyed with vegetable tanning agents. The cases are stackable and easy to manoeuvre, thanks to their patented lightweight AMO-Fibre® material and recycled paper which is formed into a fibreboard, making them as durable as they are elegant.
