If you're already shelling out good money to buy distressed jeans, then you're going to love luggage that comes pre-dented.

We’ve all sat on a plane and watched in horror as baggage handlers throw luggage into the hold like yesterday’s garbage, but with a new line of bags from Italian design company Crash Baggage,  your worries are over. 

The company is selling 340-euro suitcases that look like they've already been abused by an army of frustrated airport workers. In case you were wondering, that is $525 Canadian dollars which is a lot of money for an effect you can get by transporting your suitcase on only a handful of flights in this country.

In one newspaper report, designer Francesco Pavia recounted how he was inspired to create the battered bags:

“At an airport I saw someone stressing about some damage to their new suitcase and I wanted to counter that," he said.

“We should celebrate every collision, every crash, every trip because it just adds to the story of our travels.”

Crash Baggage's line of damaged-looking items includes suitcases ranging from carry-ons to larger cases as well as a variety of other distressed travel items like water bottles that look like someone's been playing football with them and handbags that might have been run over by a tank.
