Hand Crafted Luggage

RISE gear is here to disrupt the cheap and crappy luggage industry where 95% of all luggage is made in China. The manufacturing industry in China has no respect for the environment during their processes and generates massive amounts of waste that ultimately pollutes all of our air and oceans.  At RISE, by hand crafting our own luggage, we are empowering our own local people, who each have their own families and children, by creating jobs that China has otherwise taken away. Our luggage line sets us apart from Samsonite, Delsey, TravelPro..etc where they don't help our economy, sucking the GDP down the drain. Not to mention the difference in quality that you will be getting with RISE versus these other brands.

Each RISE luggage is crafted by our very own specially trained luggage crafters. They will personally build your luggage with the utmost care and perfection that you can trust and rely on.

The Founders, Lee and Sean, have taken on huge challenges, investment, and risk to bring the manufacturing back from overseas. But the proof is in the pudding. Our customers have loved their new luggage and the attention to detail that is crafted in every one. RISE has become a global community of serious travelers who expect the best and nothing else. We build our luggage for adventuring, exploring, and creating stories that you will keep for the rest of your life.
