From cardboard. A lot of suitcase for little money.
Here, cardboard is used in one of its classic forms: namely as suitcase. These suitcases have been a tour de force for over 80 years and are still produced in the Czech Republic. They are very solid and show extraordinary detail: corners and edges are bent out of the same piece of cardboard, the side pieces are riveted on; the corners as well as the edges are reinforced with steel sheet; the wooden slats on the outside, and in the larger suitcase inner wooden frames, provide total stability to the suitcases. The locks (in the two larger cases with key), the fittings and the handles are also made from steel sheet. The inside is laminated with paper.
Beautiful, practical, really well made, such a reasonable price, I can't find fault with any aspect of this luggage, though as mentioned in another review, I wouldn't let airport baggage handlers anywhere near it, but for any trip where you will be handling your luggage yourself these suitcases are perfect.
Beautiful suitcases at an amazing price!
When I first saw this product I almost thought the price was a misprint! But no, they really are dirt cheap. And cardboard is certainly a sturdy material, for sure. The suitcases are beautiful and I've gotten compliments on them from both cab drivers and fellow passengers! However, their biggest disadvantage is that they are not suitable for airtravel. They WILL be beaten and bruised by airport luggage handlers. Wonderful for car or train transport, though!
