Gayard, the world’s oldest and most esteemed trunk maker was founded in 1853 in Paris.

Not so cultured rhetorical question is – How in the world a cultured traveler without a private jet going to haul this around an airport? Not to mention all the excess baggage charges one has to pay on top of the $20,000 price tag of the trunk! Trunk is available in black and white colors.
