Traditional Style Luggage is back with a bang!

Back in 1938, 'Mossman' began building a range of quality plywood Luggage Trunks and Tuck Boxes. This traditional bifurcated plywood construction set the boundaries for student storage and provided the majority of the country's boarding schools with their Luggage and Tuck Box needs for decades to come. All good things do eventually come to an end and with the growing import market, the statement - 'Made in Great Britain' was soon to become a thing of the past.
Manufactured products began pouring into the country and for the next 20 - 30 years British manufacturers were becoming few and far between. Some on the other hand held on! Some carried on with what made Britain great and in time 'like all good things' the trend returned. Mossman was one of those brands that held on and continued to build Storage Trunks using the same Traditional methods of construction. The fashion industry began incorporating traditional luggage into its designs and Interior Designers began using vintage style Trunks around the home.
In 2001, British manufacturer 5 Star Cases Ltd acquired Mossman Trunks in a deal set to re-model the brand. Companies including Department Store giant 'John Lewis' and Google Ad sensations 'The Cambridge Satchel Co are now offering their very own range of Traditional Plywood trunks.
LOOK Magazine contacted Mossman in 2012 to supply them with a range of Storage Trunks for a 2 page feature in the Decembers 'Christmas' double edition.
