It all started in 1993, when founder Sol Koffler put his life savings in the line to start a luggage company in Providence, Rhode Island. His dream : a tough suitcase that could sell for a dollar.
1945, air travel was taking off and lighter luggage was in high demand. So American Tourister introduced Hi-Taper luggage that was lighter and easier to pack.
The 50’s found the company experimenting with new materials to make the world’s first moulded luggage. The distinctive modern design could really take a beating.
As international travel soared in the 60’s, American Tourister was the first company to “flight test” their bags with flight attendants from major airlines.
In 1993, American Tourister was acquired by Samsonite, making the union of the world’s greatest luggage brands.
Today, American Tourister offers an extensive selection of superior quality travel luggage that are young, fun and colourful at an affordable price.
Embedded with distinctive high quality traits, the American Tourister collections combine style and practicality, ideal for your next leisure travel.
