Hello Dear Ladies,
After a weekend of jumbled contents in bags and cases, (modern luggage) I decided there has to be a better way. Below is a photo of a Victorian doll trunk which is a replica of the real "luggage" of the 19th century. Unfortunately there does not seem to be any combination of the two eras combining light weight convenience of today with organizational compartments and convenience of yesteryear. It has been ages since I used a real suit case with compartments for my carefully packed supplies. Fancy updat d suitcases just do not hold a candle to the old invention of the case that could stand upright as a closet.
If this could be made in a compact size that would fit in today's vehicles, it would be ideal. Bring it into your room, stand it on its end and open it. You can pul out a shelf and make a table for your tea set. I have seen some of these 1890's travel trunks that include a folding chair and table.
Duffle bags and back packs create the problem of having to rifle through the entire contents to find something, whereas compartments like the above would give such a sense of elegance and order.
Even with things categorized into smaller bags within the travel bags or suitcases, it does not encourage easy access to everything.

I would like the above built for me of lightweight non-buckling, non-bulky materials, but with the drop-down table added from the pictures below, placed a little lower so two folding chairs, also included, may be placed next to it.
Yes, I do travel in these clothes. With warm leggings and boots, it works in variable weather.
