Way back in 1933, Sol Koffler used his life savings to start a luggage company in the capital city of Rhode Island. Sol’s ambition was to create a tough suitcase that he could sell for a dollar. As air travel started to dominate, cases had to evolve, so American Tourister created the Hi-Taper range, lighter and easier to pack.
As a result, American Tourister made the world’s first moulded luggage. Unfortunately, the company’s innovations spawned all the hard cases you see today.
The firm carried on selling hard suitcases and introducing soft side cases in the mid-’80s to meet the demand of the tourist market; the cases were soft but still extremely tough. In 1993 American Tourister was taken over by Samsonite.
To this day is one of the leading brands in the travel luggage market, offering high quality, strong spinner luggage that is stylish and affordable.
