Pratesi Leather Toiletry Travel Kit



After my trip to Paris several years ago, I realized my travel gear was not very "fashionable". Shame on me! I was slightly embarrassed to hop on the train or the Metro and see the looks emanating from my European counterparts as my black Samsonite suitcases and odd-looking paisley-patterned garment bag sat rather unceremoniously beside me. When I return to Europe (no time soon I fear), I plan to fortify my travel gear with top notch suitcases and bags. If you're in my same predicament, then look no further than Italy to find superb craftsmanship.

One travel bag that would certainly fulfill my requirements is this Leather Toiletry Travel Kit by Pratesi. This Italian family-owned and operated company has produced well-crafted handbags, briefcases and travel bags for over 50 years. Made from brown calf leather with gold-tone hardware, the Pratesi travel case exudes understated class. The hinged top features a single handle with square ring detail and underside wide mirror. Other features worth mentioning are a key lock buckle, protective bottom metal feet, and lined interior with lighting, zip/patch pockets and an adjustable leather strap to secure large bottles or items in place. Measurements are approximately 12 x 8 x 8.5.

Coming in at just under $500 via Forzieri, the Pratesi Leather Toiletry Travel Kit is an absolute steal. Sadly, my European vacation is on permanent hold. Hop on a plane and have fun in the Old World for me, ladies.

    Forzieri is a great site, not only for luggages but also Italian fashion, jewelry, accessories. I offer free coupons on carametis.
    Great blog! Nicolas
