• STRENGTH & STABILITY
The FUGU LUGGAGE suitcase is made out of polyvinyl chloride (PVC), a synthetic plastic polymer, polypropylene sheets,and polyester strings. These materials are bound together using drop stitch technology.Both the strong materials and the strength of the technology that binds them together enable the suitcase to successfully pass an altitude crash test. Drop stitch technology is the same technology used in the production of inflatable boats and surfboards. Its use enable the walls of the suitcase to be strong enough to withstand heavy abuse without incurring damage. The inflated walls can thus withstand extreme pressure without moving or losing equilibrium and ensure that the suitcase stays strong even when it falls or gets knocked over.
