A solution found in F1 racing
After watching that documentary on F1 racing, I had an epiphany.
The program detailed the first-ever team of racers to use the engine of their car as a stress-bearing component of the vehicle’s construction.
It made perfect sense. After all, the engine is one of the heaviest and strongest parts of the vehicle. So why not use that strength as part of the car itself?
I took that idea and applied it to the luggage. Aluminum tubes are usually mounted on a travel bag’s hard shell, but are actually the strongest part of the product. So I used these tubes to form the spine of the VOCIER C38, rather than merely mounting them on the exterior as most luggage makers do.
From this foundation, I was able to create a luggage system that gently rolls the suits – rather than folding them – around an interior compartment of the bag. This ensures that the fabric remains wrinkle-free.

Materials sourced from across the globe
I had the mechanics of the C38 sorted out. But the product was far from complete.
We tested 5 different concepts made with various materials and mechanisms. It took 14 different prototypes before we were satisfied with the design; but we still had to perfect the construction.
This piece of luggage had to embody the same sophisticated style found in the world’s finest suits, while providing exceptional durability that we could back with a satisfaction guarantee.
So we travelled the world in search of the right materials. We sampled 40 types of leather, 25 kinds of fabric and toured 5 different manufacturers before finalizing the basic components.
Every stitch on the C38 was agonized over. We changed our zipper supplier four times, just to make sure we got it right.
Demos were built, tested and destroyed in an effort to evaluate their weak points.
After four years of development and refinement, we were finally satisfied with the final product: the most stylish and upscale wrinkle-free garment bag on the market today.
That’s the story behind how I developed the VOCIER C38 wrinkle-free bag. Experience this product for yourself and let us know if all the hard work was worth it.
We hope that you enjoy our products and that they make your travel experience more enjoyable.
We love what we do. We hope you love what we create.
