 Luggage personalization stems from Europe’s heraldic traditions and had its heyday in the 19th century. Back then, it was a practical imperative that had nothing to do with fashion or status, but pursued the sole purpose of determining easily the legitimate owner of a trunk. A most pressing issue given the lavish traveling habits of the wealthy, which included tons of identical-looking luggage, and were nothing short of a logistical nightmare. Customs vary from country to country, and names, stripes, initials or numbers are used to differentiate luggage. For instance, in France, tradition dictates that a piece of luggage should be monogrammed with the initials of its owner, whereas in the UK, it is customary to use the owner’s full first and last names.
