    But isn’t it true that you can only buy online for bags that are in your own country? I thought they don’t ship internationally.

      Hello Christina,

      Thank you for your message! Yes, you are correct, you can only buy online bags that are in your own country. They do not ship internationally.

      However, if you are traveling in Europe you can always have it shipped to your hotel.

      Hope that helps,
