Innovative by Nature
Sustainable by Choice
TUMI protects the things that matter most, the things you own and the planet you travel to see.
Our planet is an astonishing place and we believe it’s our responsibility to preserve it for travelers of the future. By putting excellence and quality first, we ensure that every TUMI product has lifelong purpose, supported by our rigorous testing standards, exploration of recycled materials, and global repair network.
Built to Last
TUMI quality and durability standards are paramount. Our products are built to stay on the road. Products made with recycled materials will meet the same standards as any TUMI product.
Recycled Material Innovation
TUMI continually explores new recycled materials and components. Our recycled collections use fabric made from post- consumer recycled plastic bottles as well as recycled nylon.
Global Repair Network
If something goes wrong, we’ll fix it. If it breaks, we’ll repair it. If it’s lost, we’ll help you track it down with the TUMI Tracer® recovery program. This means fewer bags end up in landfills.
1. Innovative Products
TUMI is — and has always been — committed to creating durable products that last. We’ll protect your belongings wherever you travel — we design for durability and test every bag 30 different ways. We’ll create the highest quality products using responsible and environmentally-friendly materials and production methods.
Our luggage is designed to keep you on the road, and in the event of accidental damage we’ll repair it, wherever in the world that may be. By increasing the lifespan of your bag, we’re decreasing the load on landfill.
2. Carbon Action
We are committed to making changes in our business to minimize our impact on climate change.
We’re working with our operations around the world to reduce carbon emissions by 15% and transition to 100% renewable energy by 2025, doing our part to preserve the world’s beautiful places.
3. Thriving Supply Chain
We have established a suppliers’ code of conduct known as the “Standards of Engagement” which allows us to fulfil our responsibility to build an economy that supports thriving businesses and people.
Our supplier code of conduct requires our suppliers to meet our standards of fair and responsible business, so that everyone involved in the making of TUMI luggage is treated with respect and care.
4. People Focused
Our journey is powered by people, our greatest asset. It’s their passion and commitment that will help us make the world’s most sustainable luggage.
We make a difference to our communities wherever we can. Working with exceptional partners like St Jude Children’s Research Hospital, All Hands & Hearts, and Waves for Water, we strive to make tough journeys lead to better places.
We’re cutting the amount of virgin zinc in hardware on our bags by 50% and replacing it with recycled zinc. This means less environmental damage from mining, less depletion of limited zinc deposits, less energy to extract and alloy the zinc and less zinc wasted in landfill.
We have introduced a post-industrial recycled nylon into several of our collections, and we’re always looking to expand our use of recycled materials.
Our hangtags are printed on recycled paper and we use soy-based ink which contains less VOCs and uses less petroleum.
Eliminating PVC Materials
Innovative design has helped us to eliminate the majority of PVC used in our products.
Water-based Poly Fabric
We use a water-based polyurethane coating process for the fabrics in our bags instead of using a solvent- based coating process, resulting in less contaminants in the water supply.
980,531 plastic bottles have been diverted from landfill and into TUMI bags. We use post-consumer recycled PET fabric as the interior lining, zipper tape, webbing, and binding.
