It all started in 1933, when founder Sol Koffler put his life savings on the line to start a luggage company in Providence, Rhode Island. His dream: a tough suitcase that could sell for a dollar. 1945 Air travel was taking off and lighter luggage was in high demand. So American Tourister introduced Hi-Taper luggage that was lighter and easier to pack. The 50's found the company experimenting new materials to make the world's first moulded luggage. The distinctive modern design could really take a beating. As international travel soared in the 60's, American Tourister was the first company to "flight test" their bags with flight attendants from major airlines. In the 80's and 90's, the company continued to design hardside products, while also responding to the shift in demand for softside – durable cases that could withstand even the toughest quality critic, a gorilla.
