We are very pleased to announce TUMI has now arrived at Wheelers Luxury Gifts. So you TUMI lovers will now be able to view and purchase a wide range of TUMI products here in the heart of Loughborough, Leicestershire. We have a large variety of carefully chosen core and Autumn/Winter17 stock in-store and online. The New Jersey-based manufacturer was originally a suitcase and travel bags company, founded in 1975 by Charlie Clifford.
Since then TUMI has gone on to produce beautiful and luxury products mainly focussing on travel in mind giving the world a variety of different ways in which to store your luggage and travel light.
As previously discussed in our Proud Stockists Post, TUMI manufacture functional and stylish designs using the strongest and finest materials. TUMI produce a vast amount of luggage and accessories including bags, belts, electronics, and small leather goods and of course suitcases under their luggage department which is something they are extensively updating and improving upon. We stock all of the above as well as phone cases, keyrings and umbrellas.
We can ensure that all TUMI products have gone through a series of 30 quality checks/trials before being launched onto the market, giving you full confidence when purchasing these luxury items.
TUMI designs are unique, in other terms unlike any other suitcase or luggage accessory TUMI luggage is built to last and has all sorts of features to ensure that you get the most out of travelling. Whether that means integrated locking system tested by the TSA, protective bumpers to prevents scuffs or add-a-bag straps for those who do not carry light. The interior of the luggage has been set out and thoughtfully planned also including features like reinforced garments bags for protecting clothing, hanging brackets, waterproof compartments for when your swimwear hasn’t dried fully, velvet lined pockets for delicate jewellery, packing cubes to separate essentials which are also sold separately and reinforced tie down straps to prevent your luggage moving; none of these flimsy ones which snap or break after the first couple of uses.
All the accessories that have been created by the team of designers at TUMI also are made to the highest standards; they look and feel luxurious if you don’t believe us then pop into store to view for yourself. The leather has been handpicked ensuring that it is exactly the right grain, colour and thickness needed for the product. The embossing or engraving for branding purposes is beautifully positioned so that it fits in with the design of the product. Every product designed; function has been top priority closely followed with aesthetics because you can’t have a bag without the correct handles, straps or pockets to carry and store belongings in; a wallet needs to serve a man for a long length of time so the material and the way it’s made needs to be hardy so it wears gradually yet beautifully and doesn’t just fall apart, it needs to have those card slots and coin pockets and an area for bank notes, it also needs to be pleasing to the eye; and that is what TUMI consider when producing such item.
TUMI has created luggage for all different forms of travelling and for different lengths of travelling also. There are small and large carry and packing cases all featuring special features for the type of travelling you are doing. There are also laptop bags and business bags on wheels for the business type woman or man. Alpha Bravo and Alpha 2 are some of the most popular collections which acquire everything a person would need when travelling somewhere whether for a business trip, holiday or weekend break.
They don’t just produce luggage but also eye catching handbags, backpacks, laptop bags and casual cross body bags for everyday wear. Whether these bags get used for business wear or for casual daily life; TUMI has the answer. Bags by TUMI are a top seller for the brand particularly the men’s side of the category and we will explain why below:
For men there are some more masculine choices incorporating bolder colours which attract the male eye. Messenger style bags have been around for years as a more casual way of carrying your daily essentials. The ‘Beale’ style we particularly like not only because of the colour but also features; including a magnetic snap clasp so there is none of this flapping in the wind malarkey, plenty of compartments, a pen loop and a key leash which we believe are key components for a man as they can organise everything without having to think too much about it when rushing around when travelling or at work; TUMI obviously think alike.
For the business man we have a beautifully made and sophisticated looking business bag for you, the ‘Seneca’ has a double zip entry as well as a centre compartment perfect for separating a laptop from documents, you can carry it in hand or over the shoulder with the top handle and shoulder strap and there are plenty of storage facilities inside for pen, keys and tech items.
The ‘Saratoga’ bag is a sling style backpack so instead of wearing with two straps over your shoulders this has been adapted to one strap which slides over your head and hangs diagonally across your back. It is perfect for travelling because unlike a backpack that you have to take off to reach inside to find anything this you can slide over your shoulder onto your front to enter the bag.
Laptop bags are always a great for preventing scratches or damage happening to your laptop when stored in bags or being carried, this handy laptop cover in the ‘Alpha 2’ collection is perfect for if you are whizzing to meetings and would prefer not to carry a bag everywhere. This can also be stored in your bag when leaving for home at the end of the day.
Above are a selection of ladies’ Bags in a variety of different styles whether you are looking for a tote, cross-body, backpack or something to hold a laptop if you are the business type. We stock a large amount of different styles, colours and materials suited for the purpose. Each bag has a different function and plenty of pockets because TUMI know how much you women like an organised handbag.
The ‘Valerie’ is a more feminine example of one of TUMI’s tote bags; still fitting in with the TUMI business look and can hold a laptop and phone however has some girly features as well like a jewellery pocket and plenty of open and zipped pockets for organising your life; because we know a handbag holds a woman’s world.
Backpacks have been around for years however like all fashion it goes in and goes out; backpacks are currently the go to bag in the fashion industry which is marvellous because they are actually a very comfortable alternative to a handbag with lots more room to store essentials. The ‘Hanne’ backpack we have picked out as a favourite.
For a more sophisticated business bag the ‘Emma’ in the Sinclair range is a great choice for storing all your business essentials like tech items, pens and documents etc keeping everything neatly in place inside and easily accessible when needed.
When travelling or for daily life something more casual would be the ‘Capri’ cross body bag giving you complete free use of your hands with enough storage inside for everyday daily belongings and beautiful gold mirrored hardware adding an elegant girly touch that contrast well with the black exterior.
TUMI small leather goods, well everyone needs a wallet or purse; something you can hold your currency and cards that can easily be slipped in a bag or pocket when on the go and whipped out when it’s time to use some of that hard earned cash. People dismiss card holders and money clips because they can’t store coins; but for those who only use cards or bank notes these are a great alternative and can be concealed easier than a bulky wallet if you need to travel light or if you prefer to separate coins from cash and cards.
Looking for travel accessories and essentials that you can store toiletries inside without fear of spillage, keep cosmetics in one place or prevent creases and folds in your garments then look no further than the TUMI travel essentials collection. All the products have a function and ‘travel’ has been kept in mind when going through the design process, light materials have been used and what will be stored inside is thought about when being produced.
One of our most exciting parts of launching TUMI was introducing ‘Electronics’ to our website, something very different for Wheelers Luxury Gifts. When we said TUMI think of everything we meant it as they also produce a variety of electronic devices to help you when travelling; from weighing your luggage before flying to ensure you’re not over the baggage allowance to blocking out any other sounds in the vehicle with a pair of TUMI earphone or headphones available with a cord or wireless.
To accessorize, TUMI have thought about smaller gifts and essentials also including phone cases to protect your iPhone from getting damaged when on the go, umbrella's for staying dry and sheltered from stormy weather, luggage tags and ID tags so your luggage is personalised in-case it (dare I say it goes missing!!) and keyrings for holding all your keys in one place and adding a stylish touch.
Last but not least the cooler months are approaching and we can definitely feel a chill in the air; TUMI produce a collection called PAX which is a range of jackets and vests; all of which are waterproof, portable and stylish coming in a variety of colours for both women and men. These jackets also double as a neck roll for supporting your head when travelling; handy right?
