The pet case is an elasticated piece of fabric with a picture of your pet printed on it. The cover comes in small, medium and large. It is designed to be fitted around almost any size of suitcase.
According to Insider.com the case cover affords the owner an ease of identifying the suitcase amid a hundred others on an airport carousel (although brightly coloured suitcases do this just as well).
But its purpose is more than just an identifier.
So too may it be a deterrent against suitcase theft. After all, it is unlikely that a thief will choose to run off with a suitcase that is infinitely recognisable to its owners.
Firebox says of the product that it makes us feel as though our pet is with us in spirit as we go on our adventures around the world.
The process of ordering a case cover is straightforward. A customer uploads a picture of their favourite pet to the company’s website and specifies the size of the case cover required. The company will then post the product to the customer.
Pet photographs all the rage
Numerous companies already offer to make jewellery based on our photographs of pets. Sheown, specialises in quirky products customised accordingly. The company’s Personalized Engraved Photo Charm Portrait Necklace is an exact miniature replica of a pet in either stainless steel or sterling silver.
The customer may also choose to have an engraving on the back of the piece.
Mypicture.co.uk specialises in fabric prints of humans and pets. Cushion covers, blankets, towels and rugs are just some of the products available to be customised with our favourite pictures.
Firebox markets its latest case cover to people who journey, but the case cover may just as easily be considered for briefcases and handbags.
