THE TUMI STORY
Founded in 1975, TUMI takes its name from a Peruvian icon known to its founder from his Peace Corps days in South America. During the 1980's, TUMI's innovative introduction of soft, ultra-functional, black-on-black ballistic nylon travel bags catapulted the company to its current leadership position.
THE TUMI DIFFERENCE
Product quality and selection are key attributes that have made TUMI the leading international business, accessory and travel lifestyle brand. Simply put, there is no other product made like TUMI. This is what we call the TUMI Difference. It is how we approach every aspect and detail of product design. We regard each component—from the smallest, case-hardened solid steel machine screw to our exclusive, virtually abrasion-proof FXT™ Ballistic Nylon® fabric— of each item as if it were the most important.
REAL LIFE IS OUR LAB
Our innovation doesn't happen in a vacuum. People inspire everything we do. Which is why we take each and every product out into the real world, testing, touching and trying in every imaginable scenario — and ultimately rejecting anything that doesnt upgrade and streamline your life. It's about tools that provide solutions, before the problems even cross your mind.
INNOVATION IS OUR OBSESSION
We seek it. We study it. Yes, we obsess over it. From aeronautics to automotives to sportswear constantly inspired by the worlds most innovative industries. And with 125+ patents to our name, our fervor for forward thinking is what keeps us ahead of the curve. Collectors, creators and connoisseurs of whats next.
