A pioneer of travel luggage, Samsonite creates smart, high-quality solutions for the world traveler.
When the company was founded in Denver, Colorado in 1910 it set itself the challenge of creating trunks that would stand the test of time, the rigors of early travel and all types of weather. The brand has now been making the best luggage on the market for more than 110 years.
In 1986, Samsonite developed the award-winning Oyster case to respond to the demand for lightweight hardside luggage. Oyster was the first case with a three-point locking system and would soon become the fastest-selling suitcase of all time.
Since then, Samsonite has developed even lighter and stronger luggage collections, becoming the most innovative luggage manufacturer in the world.
Quality and durability are some of the most important attributes of Samsonite products. The brand’s vision is to become the most sustainable lifestyle bag and travel luggage company globally. To achieve this goal, it has set up more than 200 repair centers in more than 65 countries.
And to become more environmentally-friendly, Samsonite also aims to reduce the carbon intensity of its operations and choose high-quality, sustainable materials.
All this explains why the brand is now treating some of its products with Polygiene Stays Fresh technology. This guarantees fast, effective antimicrobial protection and helps to keep surfaces hygienic and reduce the risk of cross-contamination, helping make the products last longer and lowering their carbon footprint.
