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.
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 they call the TUMI Difference. It is how they approach every aspect and detail of product design. They 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.
