T.T Trunks, Paris. Whether for champagne, espresso, or personal poolside attendant.
Aren't they beautiful? They are possibly the ultimate luxurious trunk that I have come across! I thought I would share an excerpt from their site, that explains a bit more about who they are and what they do..."Each trunk or leather accessories coming from our workshop is created with the highest leather craftsman techniques available. The cutting, nailing, and finishing is completed by hand with quality control overseeing each step along the way to ensure you the highest luxury finishing."
"Our designers choose the most selective leather skins from the most famous French and European tanneries. The canvas coverings are protected by special coatings, which are guaranteed to last a lifetime. The metallic accessories fitted on the trunk are made of solid brass and covered with a layer of nickel, palladium or 24 carat gold. They are subjected to quality control to ensure the longevity and durability of your trunk. Over one thousand studs are nailed into place by hand, which go into the careful production of each single trunk, requiring more than 200 hours of work to ensure every detail of production." On a side note, they also designer smaller items such as vanities/makeup cases—personalization is available.
