I replaced my ten year old Samsonite with a Tripp fabric suitcase mainly because it was less heavy. I bought the latter in Debenhams. I used it for the first time last week on a shorttrip to New York. As I started to unpack, I realised the clothes inside were dirty- mainly along the folds. Hence in my first few hours after arrival, I had to hand wash some Tshirts so they would be dry for the next day. Dresses required to be sent away for cleaning, and in other cases I avoided wearing the dirty items -only washing them now that I am home. I have had several fabric suitcases in the past but never experienced anything like this. Never again!
