Jesse Shwayder started Samsonite over a hundred years ago in Denver. Jesse and his brothers made wooden travel trunks for those privileged enough to travel.
In the 1940s, when travel became more mainstream, Samsonite released suitcases that were still made from wood with a vulcanized fibre covering. In 1974 the company released the first wheeled suitcase, and in the 80’s Samsonite released the first suitcase with a 3 point locking system.
Samsonite cases have continued to evolve over the years with features like 360-degree spinner wheels, wide pull handles, multi-point locking systems, aluminium cases and the latest almost space-age CURV material.
