Made in Italy has always been considered synonymous with the highest quality, style and elegance. Thanks to its undisputedly successful brands, Italy boasts a very high position internationally. What makes Italian manufacturing and craftsmanship an element of great luxury and quality is the choice of unique and long-lasting raw materials. The creativity, beauty, and quality that distinguish Italian products have always been under everyone’s eye. Specifically, the Italian luggage in the creation of bags, trolleys, and travel accessories has always meant that we could speak of extreme accuracy in the details and in the functionality of the tools. In this article, we have collected some of the most famous brands of Italian luggage, able to always offer cutting-edge products.
Samsonite is one of the most practical Italian brands. This is why the suitcases, bags, garment racks, accessories and trolleys of this brand are particularly different from products belonging to other brands. The style offered by Samsonite is varied and comes in different forms depending on the need: from soft and elegant trolleys to rigid and colorful ones, any trip is accompanied by the right comfort. Among the different collections proposed by Samsonite, there is that of cabin trolley, also called hand luggage. Thanks to intelligent innovation, Samsonite offers luggage with pockets positioned on the top of the bag. Due to a practical function and the context relating to the journey itself, Samsonite offers the opportunity to access the most important contents of the suitcase without having to move it from the overhead bin or from under the seat. Thanks to the attention that this brand reserves to its customers, it is possible to purchase a trolley that is suitable for one or two days, or the largest hold luggage for very long overseas journeys.
Tucano is another leading company in the luggage sector. Born in 1981, it comes into the market world of bags, suitcases and duffel bags in a way that is unique to you. In fact, the particularity of this company also lies in its name. The idea of Tucano stems from an analogy that Franco Luini, owner of the brand, wanted to make or rather transfer to his products starting from the colors of the toucans present in Brazil. The peculiarity of this Italian brand lies in the great attention to detail, not only aesthetic but also functional. Tucano trolleys are ergonomic, comfortable, easy to carry and open. The colors are bright and lively just like the fantasy that Luini wanted to transfer to his suitcases. Some of the Tucano brand suitcases are equipped with practical laptop bags as proof of a company that thinks specifically about everyone’s needs. Tucano brings to the market a truly innovative collection called “Sfilo” which includes a series of trolleys and travel sets consisting of bags, suitcases and backpacks, all modular. A true innovation that we can certainly define as one of a kind.
Roncato is a brand within anyone’s reach compared to luxury luggage. However, this brand manages to combine optimal functionality with a refinement and beauty of the materials thanks to the raw materials chosen. Roncato offers several lines to meet everyone’s needs and divide the collections in a defined way. Some sports and leisure products are collected in a completely unique collection and also suitable for the simplest and shortest trips such as daily trips. The hard cases are made of rigid polycarbonate, scratch-resistant surface produced in different colors and sizes to meet the needs of the whole family, as well as the soft, light and resistant cases of the “Sidetrack” line that have 4 recessed wheels for easier sliding, fluid and better stability.
The Valextra brand has been producing strictly leather suitcases since 1937. The elegant and refined style that accompanies this Milan manufacturer has always distinguished travel products. Designed for male and female tastes, Valextra is a company that has always remained faithful to itself while managing to conform to the demands of the moment and the evolutionary trend of fashion.
The style that distinguishes this brand is essential and elegant. Travel accessories, trolleys, suitcases and extras respond to the style that has guided this brand since the 1930s. The lines are pure, discreet and simple, inspired by the profiles of functionality and form. The idea of each project whether it is a suitcase, bag or luggage is based on an unconventional idea that combines precision, essentiality and a sense of proportion.
Alviero Martini is an Italian stylist struggling with the work of costume designer, window dresser and then actor. During his work in Rome, in 1987 he had the idea of creating his own line of bags and travel accessories with a geographical map theme. The idea came precisely from a suitcase because the designer was exactly handling a trolley and by chance, by placing a map on the suitcase, he had a flash of genius. The Alviero Martini trolleys are elegant and refined, perfect for any type of travel because in addition to being aesthetically pleasing to the eye and to the touch, they are also extremely functional and respectful of the most particular needs of the traveler. The material with which these suitcases are made is a very delicate cotton with the geographical map printed on it. In fact, Alviero Martini is very famous first of all for the material and printing with which he has endowed his products. The material called “Geo” is soft and delicate. A PVC film follows the cotton for protection purposes. Although it may seem paradoxical, this type of embossed fabric is waterproof and tear resistant. The shades are applied by hand and the details are embellished and protected with a vegetable treatment that improves the resistance of the leather that covers bags and trolleys, protecting these same parts from water and wear.
Piquadro is one of the most original Italian brands ever. Piquadro creations combine style and functionality. Resistant, beautiful and refined suitcases can be transported with manageability and ease, always offering a refined design. All suitcases have a space capable of perfectly meeting the most common requests and needs. In fact the external parts of the trolleys are equipped with pockets for storing the most varied travel items. The Piquadro brand then presents some completely unique and special innovations: these are technological innovations that make Piquadro suitcases capable of communicating via App with the suitcase owner and alerting if the suitcase has moved too far, if the mobile phone battery is low, providing therefore the possibility of reloading the same through a simple contact, to specify the weight of the suitcase once the internal organization has been completed, to activate the closure and deactivate it at the appropriate time. All this is possible thanks to the App available for both iOS and Android systems, which is called Connequ. The materials used range from the most common selected and quality leather to contemporary technological fabrics in order not to lose the taste of modernity. After careful selection and processing, Piquadro subjects its products to strict tests.
Carpisa is one of the most famous Italian brands, which over time has become a reference point for many travelers. The characteristic that distinguishes this brand is certainly the relationship between quality and price. The history of the brand is the result of a combination of ideas that over the years has established itself well in the Italian and international distribution panorama. The assortment in design and the high quality of the products have contributed to concrete growth at the company level. All Carpisa trolleys and travel bags are aimed at a wide target thanks to the huge variety of colors, prices and products. The values that have always been directly identifiable in the products themselves are accessibility, elegance and a youthful and dynamic spirit. Each trolley respects the needs of the traveler with silent and multidirectional wheels, a sturdy telescopic handle and a comfortable and practical grip. The brand offers the possibility to choose among rigid and soft models and among different sizes, each of these perfectly adaptable to different situations and personal needs. The materials used are strictly certified. The manufacturer has always been careful to look for raw materials capable of satisfying the needs of lightness, non-toxicity, and resistance.
The Paoli brand is particularly characteristic for its finishing lines and for the intent to create a product that refers as much as possible to an antique or, better still, retro effect. The leathers used for suitcases, bags, and travel accessories are of remarkable quality. The refined and specific style makes all trolleys and travel bags tools capable of evoking romantic and dreamy feelings, mixed with a completely personalized elegance. Hence, the slogan of the founder of the Paoli brand and director of the brand, Alessio: “When luxury meets timeless elegance”. Looking at the Paoli bags and suitcases, you get the idea of a project that remains faithful to tradition but which is enriched over time with color, refinement, and style, increasing its value. Each Paoli product is customizable, unique, and handcrafted according to the customer’s taste. The lines proposed by Paoli are different and at the same time similar in the emotions they manage to evoke. The structure of the bags and trolleys are reminiscent of the trunks, made with warm and elegant colors such as black, blue and red. Generally, the materials used are wood and the style is reminiscent, even in suitcases, of that typical of the 1930s. The suitcases are spacious, handy, and sturdy. The brand offers the opportunity to create customizable trolley sets with other accessories.
