The Orient is truly exquisite. It is the only collection of luggage to feature an urushi lacquered finish. Urushi, the rust coloured sap drawn from the urushi tree native to Japan, has been used in traditional Japanese arts as far back as 4000 BC and bestows the Orient with an incomparable beauty and aesthetic.
To create the Orient's remarkable exterior, each suitcase is hand-crafted by a single, master Japanese artisan working from his studio in Tokyo. Here he hand lacquers the Vulcan Fibre with several layers of urushi, before applying a final coating of clear gloss to accentuate the extraordinary natural beauty of this material. Since the appearance of the urushi will vary according to the conditions in which it dries, each Orient suitcase carries its own unique patina and features the finest champagne colored silk lining. Each case is built in the Globe-Trotter factory in England.
