HeyChesto: new suitcases for the stylish traveller

Not your typical suitcase
September 2022: For those that swoon over old pictures of the golden age of travel with its stylish trunks and silk lined cases, HeyChesto is a new British luggage brand that offers a touch of bygone travel glamour for the contemporary traveller to stand out from the crowd. 

The HeyChesto collection has been inspired by iconic British destinations and come 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 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.  

“I wanted to create a suitcase that brings joy and to make its owner feel special wherever they are heading off with it. Our HeyChesto cases put the fun and glamour back into travel and will brighten up any airport carousel. Be prepared to be inundated with compliments when travelling around with your HeyChesto!” – says founder, Tanya Ames.

Whether gallivanting for a weekend in the countryside or further afield, HeyChesto is a colourful, design-inspired luggage option for people of any age or gender. The question is where to go to first?

A HeyChesto suitcase is £395. www.heychesto.com
