Regal in its bearing, effortless in its elegance, the Polo Trunk is our ode to the timeless spirit of the game.
Mumbai, 8th February, 2017
As an ode to the sport of kings, the Trunks Company Jaipur recently hosted the Trunks Company Polo Cup at the picturesque Mahalaxmi Race Course. The event also celebrated the one-of- its-kind Polo Trunk, which pays tribute to the game in the company’s inimitable style.
The Jaipur Team, comprising of players like India’s Polo star Rinna Shah, HRH of Jaipur, Maharaja Padmanabh Singh and Arjuna awardee Samir Suhag, competed against the Mumbai Polo Team. The crowd was treated to a dramatic game with both teams displaying tremendous tenacity and passion in pursuit of the ball. Polo enthusiasts like Jackie Shroff, Arjun Khanna, Pria Kataria Puri, Kunal Kapoor, Zeba Kohli and Rishad Kundalmal were present at this high-octane event, cheering both teams on.
Guests were treated to a very special evening that started with cocktails and hors d’oeuvres. As the evening progressed, the brand unveiled its homage to the game, the gorgeous Polo Trunk, meticulously made over 600 man-hours. Handcrafted in full-grain leather with suede interiors, wood beading and teakwood contouring, every aspect of this trunk was handled with the greatest care – from sanding down a block of wood to the finishing process of the leather. Superior craftsmanship, attention to detail and the use of materials of unmatched quality make this timeless creation truly exquisite.
While raising a toast on this occasion, Trunks Company co-founder Paritosh Mehta said, “Tonight is all about celebrating the spirit of Polo. In a way, it is also a celebration of Rajasthan, the place where the sport has a rich history, and the place that inspires our ethos at the Trunks Company. The Polo Trunk is our way of honoring this majestic sport and the lifestyle it embodies.”
The Trunks Company also created an unforgettable showcase of their stunning range of handcrafted trunks, designed for travel, adornment, for the finest wines and more. Majestic horses strutted around, spirits and conversation flowed, and guests were treated to an unforgettable tour through the captivating world of trunks.
