    Part of Alviero Martini's 1a Classe Geo Collection, these travel bags are perfect travel companions. The exquisite geo classic canvas, with a sepia tone global map displayed across the canvas, evokes images and memories of vintage travel in a chic and contemporary way. These bags feature one rolled brown leather handle, brown leather piping trim, and brass hardware. The five largest bags feature double zip around closures and three brown leather and brass belt closures that are monogrammed in gold "C.G.S.", keeping contents secure. The smallest bag features one double zip around closure and one brown leather and brass belt closure. The interiors are done in beige canvas, featuring one large zip pocket, and a brown leather Y belt strap to secure contents. The smallest travel bags interior features a brown leather X belt strap to secure contents, and one large zip pocket. These bags include brown leather and brass luggage tags.

    These travel bags are in Good Condition. There is scratching, indentation, and darkening to the hardware, dark water marks throughout the leather pieces, scratching across the leather, and scuffing and black marks to the base corners and the piping trim. One of the belt loops on the main belt closure of a bag is coming apart, and has been stapled back together. One corner has torn through to reveal the metal spring underneath the piping trim. One of the corners is blackened from burning. There are a few dark stains to the canvas, and the leather is cracking in places from wear. The interiors are stained in places, and the leather straps are cracked, water marked, and scratched. One of the large bags and the smallest bag are missing their luggage tags.
