Tumi.com is the official website of Tumi Holdings, Inc., a manufacturer of luggage but also different types of bags and accessories. It is an American company based at South Plainfield in New Jersey. The company was founded by Charlie Clifford in 1975. Charlie Clifford had served in Peru as part of the Peace Corps. He borrowed the name tumi, which is a ceremonial knife used in Peru for sacrifices, for his new company. Tumi, Inc. was acquired as a unit by Doughty Hanson & Co. in 2004 but the company went public in 2012. Presently, Tumi.com is a subsidiary of Samsonite and it is listed on the new York Stock Exchange.
The company has an extensive retail presence in addition to its digital or ecommerce presence with Tumi.com. Tumi products are sold at official Tumi stores and franchises, specialty and department stores. There are more than a hundred and twenty Tumi stores. There are more than two hundred Tumi shops within major stores around the world. Over the years Tumi.com has expanded its inventory. It sells pens, belts, electronic equipments and a plethora of accessories not confined to travel alone. Tumi.com has always been at the forefront when it comes to style and elegance. It was once known for its use of ballistic nylon, then came aluminum case. It had teamed up with Anish Kapoor, a famous designer, for PowerPack Backpack. The product incorporated solar technology so one could charge phones. What Tumi.com is not known for is economic pricing. You have to look for Tumi.com coupons and promo codes to enjoy some substantial savings.
Tumi.com has managed to consistently surprise its target audience. It teamed up with Ducati and had a license to produce cobranded pieces. It came up with the idea of having a unique twenty digit registration number on a metal plate installed in every bag it manufactured so customers would know for sure the bag is theirs and the metal plate would also have tracer for customers to know exactly where their luggage is. There have been disappointing developments as well, especially when Tumi was acquired by Doughty Hanson & Co and the lifetime warranty was brought down to only five years. But thereafter Samsonite has acquired the brand and it is on its way to being one of the most formidable players in luggage, bags and travel accessories segment.
