Globe-Trotter & David Shrigley Launch New Suitcase Collaboration

GlobeTrotter is excited to launch a new limited edition, featuring original David Shrigley artworks on the outside of their iconic 4wheel CarryOn cases

David Shrigley, known for his handwritten text and quick-witted animal, people, alien, and still life imagery, has created two designs to be shown on the exterior of Globe-Trotter’s Carry-On cases. The ivory vulcanised fibreboard provides a superb canvas, and a set of vibrant cobalt blue corners studded with brass rivets give the appearance of a picture frame. You can literally carry your case as if it’s a piece of art.

The selected designs by the celebrated artist are typical of his work; both ‘Untitled (Be an Ass)’ and ‘Untitled (baggage)’ executed in bright azure paint, feature prominently on the exterior. These cases are available in Globe-Trotter’s latest 4-wheel suitcase format in Carry-On size, making travelling much easier.
