Our inspiration came from those wonderful traveling wardrobe trunks from a bygone era. The year was 1919. The great war was over. People the world over were starting to travel again. They’re preferred piece of luggage was a sturdy wardrobe trunk. In it they could store all the clothing they would need to endure long journeys. They weren’t always the most attractive piece of luggage, but were perfect for safely and neatly storing their clothing for the voyage.
Today, wardrobe trunks are making a huge comeback. People are buying the old ones and fixing them up for use in bedrooms and around the home as interesting, inexpensive storage pieces. However, most of them are too far gone to hold up to travel. The interiors are ruined and actually, they aren’t large enough for today’s traveler.
We’ve had so many inquiries over the years that we decided to manufacture our own version of the old travel wardrobe trunk. Back in the day, people had far less clothing. It was also made differently. Few people had bulky sweaters for example. The old wardrobe trunks had small drawers, which wouldn’t work well for holding today’s fashions.
Our American Made traditional wardrobe trunks come with four full-size drawers mounted on premium Knape & Vogt drawer slides . These are the same size drawers as you would have in a dresser at home. The hanging side is wide and deep with a telescoping clothing rod. Its velvet lined for a clean look and for added clothing protection.
We ship the traditional wardrobe trunks UPS Ground to the home, office, hotel, etc… Once packed, they can be shipped over and over using any method you like. They’re designed to hold up to years of travel. All our wardrobe trunks are lockable insuring that your belongings are secure.
Aside from being used in cruise travel, home decor and overseas deployment, many people are now using these in hotels. These people are commuting to the same hotel several times a year. They don’t want to have to pack a suitcase every time they go. So they pack the wardrobe trunk up once and ship it off to the hotel. There it stays. The concierge or bell desk always know when the guest is due to arrive. As a service, they wheel the guest’s wardrobe trunk up to the room so its there before the guest checks in. All their clothing is in the room ready to go. When the guest checks out, the hotel will launder their clothing and pack it back into the wardrobe trunk. Down to storage it goes waiting for the guest’s next visit. You can’t get any more convenient than that.
