We’ve all endured the panic: that last, hurried sweep of a hotel suite before catching a cab back to the airport. Scrabbling around the sink for miniature toiletries, shaking out the duvet for errant socks and scanning the bedside tables for pens, watches, wallets. And yet, always, we forget something; often remembered during a frantic pocket search as we pass through pre-flight security.
But it doesn’t have to be this way. The travel tray is an oft-overlooked accessory, but one that you should certainly add to your jet-setting luggage before your next jaunt or journey. And, from London’s master leatherworker, Ettinger, this waxy cowhide and soft pig suede example is the perfect choice.
With snap fasteners in the corners, the tray can be flattened during transit — and then popped up as soon as you check-in. This way, you can keep everything from loose change to room keys, cufflinks to collar stays, safe in your suite. And, in this sleek navy colour from Ettinger’s Lifestyle Collection, you’ll do so in inimitable style.
