Samsonite International is a luggage brand that is well-known among travellers for its high quality standards and unparalleled design technology. The brand was founded in 1910 by Jesse Shwayder, during the time when travelling was a luxury that only a few could afford. This meant that also the luggage of a world traveller had to be as prestigious as its carrier, and Shwayder answered this need by providing stylish and high quality solutions. His ideals still live in the production of today’s Samsonite products.
Not only are the products durable, they’re also made light so that the traveller doesn’t have to compromise the items they choose to travel with. The award-winning Cosmolite is one of the lightest and strongest hardside suitcase collection. A Cosmolite suitcase is conducted at -12 degrees to replicate the temperature when it comes out of a plane and manages to survive a drop at 1,2 metres. The seashell-inspired design manages to be extremely pleasing to the eye while protecting your precious possessions.
What makes this possible is the impressive Curv® technology that is exclusive to Samsonite in the luggage area – the technology is otherwise known to be used in bulletproof vests, skates and skis. Using this technology Samsonite has created its lightest hardside suitcase collection with maximum impact-resistance, the Lite-Shock, once again pushing the boundaries of luggage manufacturing.
Samsonite’s travel equipment is always performance tested, at fully loaded capacity, using their stringent quality control standards. Every product is put through rigorous tests of strength, durability, and dependability that represent the environmental demands of frequent travelers. The brand offers also other travel items, such as backpacks, briefcases, and duffel bags to suit all your travel needs.
While Samsonite is the company’s most known brand, it also owns other brands such as American Tourister, High Sierra, Haltmann, Lipault and Speck. To this day Samsonite International continues to live its legacy, being the choice of jetsetters and on-the-go business people around the world who need travel items that last.
