New British luggage brand HeyChesto offers a touch of bygone travel glamour for the contemporary business traveller to stand out from the crowd.
For those that swoon over old pictures of the golden age of travel with its stylish trunks and silk-lined cases, the HeyChesto collection has been inspired by iconic British destinations and comes in four evocative shades – The St Mawes in navy blue, The Cambridge in plum red, The Padstow in cream and The Glastonbury in matt gold for a bit of rock and roll.
Each chic HeyChesto suitcase is made by hand and built to last. Functionality flows on a par with aesthetic. The shell of the suitcase is made with ABS material and covered with PU which is a hard-wearing imitation vegan leather. Glamorous gold-coloured latches and rivets add a vintage feel together with a sturdy lock ensuring possessions are safe and secure when on the move.
The case’s interior is lined with striped cotton, either in a bold beach towel blue and white design or a more understated thinner stripe style. Three pockets line the sides of the case for small or loose items with the central area clear for clothes and washbags. Making moving through airports or train stations a breeze, the HeyChesto suitcase can either be carried like an old-fashioned case by clasping its smart handle or pushed through on 360 spinner wheels and pulled by its telescoping handle.
HeyChesto was founded by Tanya Ames, a lifelong traveller and mother of four who was on the perpetual hunt for a practical and attractive suitcase to organise her and her family’s clothes. Not satisfied with the options on the market, Tanya designed her perfect case and hey presto, HeyChesto was born: a glamourous travelling companion that encourages fun and spontaneity.
