Modern luggage combines functionality and aesthetics People expect a lot more out of their travel gear nowadays, and modern luggage is often designed with the best craftsmanship and latest technology in order to make travelling as simple and pain-free as possible - at no sacrifice to aesthetics. Admirers of Goyard's stencilled design will be happy that the traditional trunks come in a variety of shapes and styles, such as the Goyard Palace trunk suitcase, with its classic studded, fabric-covered exterior complete with sturdy clasps and corners, or the Goyard Boeing travel bag. The products still use age-old crafting techniques whereby a coat of gum arabic is applied by hand to linen, hemp or cotton to create the Goyard covering fabric. The result is a sturdy and waterproof accessory. Travellers who like gadgets can look to Victorinox, which has a line of Tourbach travel gear that ranges from cabin duffels to beauty totes, constructed in Swiss-engineered fabric with a stain and water-repellent finish. The Tourbach products are what would be expected from the brand known for producing Swiss Army knives, and much of the functional utility of the handy pocket tool has been incorporated into the travel gear. The Tourbach Expandable Wheeled 22-inch upright bag, for example, comes with a front pocket that provides quick access to passports, boarding passes or any other small items that may need to be removed frequently. Travellers will enjoy the front gusseted pocket, large enough to hold a laptop, reading material or extra clothing. Messy shampoo bottles, powdered cosmetics and sharp-edged jewellery pieces no longer pose a risk to expensive clothing with the Tourbach Beauty Tote, which has an internal compartment that contains two pockets complete with elastic loops to secure full-sized toiletries, a removable, zippered pouch for cosmetics and a zippered storage pocket with a micro-silk lined jewellery sleeve. Another zippered micro-silk lined pouch can be used to store eyeglasses or contact lens cases.
