Even for the frequent traveler, luggage can often get in the way, whether it’s at home or in a hotel room. The Paravel Stowaway Collapsible Suitcase is the answer, as this canvas and leather square suitcase collapses for easy storage and space-saving. It zip fastens along the top and sides, is delightfully roomy, waterproof, and can be held with its two handles or with an over the shoulder strap. A fun, quirky touch: the words “Out of Office” stitched onto the side.
