ELEGANT MID-CENTURY GROOMING ACCESSORIES TRAVEL KIT

Given my failure to press or steam the clothing I’ve been posting recently, you might think that grooming is not a top priority. But, no matter how pressed for time I may be, the products I use every day are important and I love having beautiful and well-organized ways to carry them with me when I leave Headquarters. Since this is the last of the items in this set with a metal zipper, it seemed like a good time to show it to you.

Made of leather in East Germany, the mirror and the stainless steel container lids are shiny and clean despite the odd reflections captured in this picture. The kit could be for a man or woman, as the tools are all basic. Everything is made to a high standard of quality, as is customary with German-made tools and steel products. The little 7″ toothbrush holder would hardly fit a modern toothbrush, excepting perhaps for a child’s, but can still be very convenient for other items. The most delightful thing about this packet is the compactness, efficient design and quality of the materials. Very rare to see anything like it now . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
