Yes and the reason I deleted it is that CBD means different things to different people on this forum (see CBD threak) and I did not want to get into an endless argument about what CBD means if you are a lawyer/banker/politician/self employed or what CBD means in Europe versus America versus UK etc etc
Since I got an unexpected discount on my latest purchase, I had some leftover cash burning in my pocket.
I had to rectify that situation.
This is the Atlas suitcase by Alstermo Bruk. It might appear to be a copy of the familiar style of Globe-Trotter, but Alstermo Bruk began making this style of bags in the early 1800s, around 90 years before of Globe-Trotter. These bags are made in Sweden by a small company on the brink of ruin. The company declared bankruptcy last year, but after a change of ownership the workshop was reopened with 3 employees.
They are currently working on a new collection for the Japanese market which I sincerely hope will bring the company back on its feet. I think it would be a shame for the company to permanently close down at this point. If there's a market for Globe-Trotter, there should be a market for Alstermo Bruk. Especially since they're barely half the price of Globe-Trotter.
