What’s in the werks at The Vdub Hub?

If you’ve been following us through social media, you’ve kept up with the development of our newest venture – Vintage Automotive Touring Luggage. We hope to expand the line to other classic cars like PORSCHE 356 and Mercedes.

Although we’re still in the prototype stages, we’re getting very excited about the progress and hopes are to release our first set this Summer, 2018.

Our distinctive automotive touring luggage is handcrafted in Italy by the highest skilled artisans, using original manufacturing methods and materials. We chose Italy because of its renowned reputation for producing the world’s most sought after luggage and handbags.

We were fortunate enough to get our hands on a original set of VW Beetle luggage, made in Hamburg, Germany by Leder-Schüler in the mid 1950s. We’ve replicated the dimensions exactly, but the look is our own and period correct. Our 2-piece set fits perfectly in the luggage compartment behind the rear seat of Type-1 Bugs, just like the originals did.

Extremely strong, lightweight and functional with an iconic aesthetic. We follow the same manufacturing technique and materials used by Leder-Schüler and other famous luggage makers of the time. Our cases are made from vulcanised fiberboard with a water repellent sealer. Corners are protected with steel corner caps for durability. Appointed with Tuscan leather trim and premium chrome plated hardware.

To minimize shipping cost, the smaller case fits within the larger case so both cases ship in just one box. Our European customers will be able to purchase from our warehouse in Italy, to minimize the shipping cost. We will also carry a surplus in California for our US customers.

Large Case measures L: 34″ x W: 6.5″ x H: 18″
Small Case measures L: 32 x W: 5.25 x H: 16″

We are still working on trying to price our luggage as affordable as possible. We’ll keep you up-to-date as we get closer to our release date.
