The snaps have to stick to the theme too, which is based around the concept of ‘water’. This could include waterfalls, weather, swimming pools, the beauty of nature or any other interpretation.

Ugly Bagz enables customers to upload their own designs, including photos, graphics and corporate logos, to create their own stylized wheeled suitcases made from the highest quality luxury bi-cast leather, which has an incredible real-leather feel. Printed on both sides with a customer’s unique design, the personalized luggage is the perfect gift to make anyone feel special and is an exceptional and different way to celebrate special occasions, such as a wedding or honeymoon.

For businesses, Ugly Bagz provides an opportunity for highly original corporate branding and a great way to promote products and services. The one-of-a-kind cases stand out from all the other bags on the airport carousel and are spotted and grabbed to go more easily. They are an artistic canvas on which customers can express their design tastes, interests and personality.

Ugly Bagz celebrates uniqueness and being diverse and different as being beautiful rather than a cookie-cutter perception of acceptable societal norms; hence the name which according to Ugly Bagz is a lighthearted way of expressing that beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

“In a world of homogeneous mass production Ugly Bagz is a fresh, modern and fun approach to creatively revealing your wonderful sense of individuality and your own distinct identity. Our brand ethos is to keep evolving and to celebrate how special it is to be yourself with your own inimitable sense of style expressed through our customized travel bags,” says Jay Jokhani, CEO of Ugly Bagz Project by Decorative Plastics Co. Ltd.

Customer designs are printed on the bi-cast leather shell of the Ugly Bagz cases which also have an attractive blue lining with the company’s branding. Each piece of luggage has a built-in retractable trolley mechanism for easy movability, four corner protectors and double professional zippers with a TSA lock system.

Ugly Bagz are functional and funky at the same time and are perfect for customers to make a statement as they embrace their passion for travel and adventure according to eOasia CEO, Elodie Badoual.
