Noble & Graff specialises in producing the world's rarest and finest travelling trunks, furnitures and leather goods, each of which hand created by highly skilled European craftsmen and artisans. We are also one of the last few remaining luxury trunk manufacturers still in business. But have you ever heard of us?
Probably not. That's because, unlike other long-standing or mass-producing trunk manufacturers, Noble & Graff was established by an alliance of highly skilled craftsmen and artisans trained by old Royal-Warranted English workshops. Only produced for prestige clientele with a limited number of less than 30 annually, each item is extremely scarce and sought-after.
In contrast to other manufacturers, Noble & Graff's specialist leather, woodworking and metal artisans employ traditional techniques and hand finishing on all of the products, constructing each fully by hand in high strength wooden panels in the manner of late 19th century technique. Leather is sourced from the finest European tanneries, handmade parts from Italy, America, and solid brass components made in our own workshop in England, Noble & Graff artisans take extra effort in ensuring that each piece retains its exclusivity, aesthetics and quality.
Without the backing of a corporate group and with complete disregard of high profile marketing or mass production, Noble & Graff vowed to maintain the English craftsmanship heritage, working discretely to create state-of-the-art products to achieve excellence and exclusivity.
Products range from travelling trunk, jewellery boxes, cabinets, chest of drawers, attache cases and smaller leather goods such as watch rolls to name a few. And if you want your item to be unique, bespoke order or hand painted personalisation options are also available on request.
