I wish I had a "before" shot of this trunk but, needles to say, it was a pretty ordinary black trunk that I wanted to redesign for use on my website. It's recovered in black canvas duck with leather binding. I added the large, reproduction solid brass draw bolts and found a solid brass lock that I managed to fit a key to as well. Veg-tanned leather belts with matching hand-stitched leather handles added some contrast to the black and then I went a little nuts and added that red quilted fabric to the inner top lid. Very large and HEAVY trunk, this one is!
