Immigrant Sol Koffler founded American Luggage Works in Rhode Island in 1933; it was in the midst of the Great Depression and he sought to offer a tough suitcase priced at a dollar. Soon after he devised a new line of luggage that was markedly better than anything on the market and the American Tourister brand was launched. Today the company is a part of the Samsonite Corporation. Known for a tradition of quality, design and value, it is the second largest luggage brand in the world. The well designed travel products are durable and make a smart choice for you and your family. The stylish and high quality product line includes lightweight and durable luggage sets, luggage collections, garment bags, wheeled boarding bags, spinner luggage, casual bags, business bags, wheeled luggage, travel gear, carry-on bags, travel totes, weekend bags, four-wheeled luggage, suitcases, duffels, overnight bags and more.
