A hybrid polycarbonate-fabric suitcase for Fabbrica Pelletterie Milano, an Italian brand specialising in creative, unique suitcases and bags.
The polycarbonate body is light yet strong, and the cloth lid supple for easier packing. The name ‘kame’, ’tortoise’ in Japanese, come for this structural resemblance to the animal with its hard shell.
This suitcase come in 4 colors and one size, a cabin case. This permitted us to design a lid easy to open and close by rolling it to the side.
Unlike most suitcases, the lid unzips from the top as well as the side, making it easy to take things in and out of the suitcase when it’s upright.
