The TUMI Difference

You are our inspiration. You are the reason we obsess over creating pieces that exceed expectations, down to the smallest detail. Simply put, there is no other product made like a TUMI.

What makes
us different.

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.

These five principles guide us as we continually evolve, creating, innovating, and testing products to meet our customers’ needs.
