Australian baggage brand Crumpler has been tasked with creating a bespoke and premium luggage collection for the 2020 Australian Olympic Team after being named the official luggage supplier by the Australian Olympic Committee (AOC).
After decking out the national team for the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Olympics in Brazil, Crumpler will once again support the Australian Team ahead of the Tokyo 2020 Olympics.
“As an iconic Australian founded and owned brand Crumpler is excited to continue our support of Team Australia through the 2020 Games in Tokyo,” Crumpler Chief Executive Officer, Adam Wilkinson said.
“Our first-ever Australian Olympic sponsorship at Rio 2016 proved to be a meaningful platform to support our athletes and showcase our innovative luggage products to consumers globally.
“We are proud to be supporting the Australian Olympic Team for the second straight Olympic campaign and we can’t think of a better way to celebrate our 25th birthday than by designing quality and stylish luggage worthy of our Olympians,” he said.
Established in 1995, Crumpler began as a Melbourne based messenger bag company but has since expanded globally and expanded its product range, most notably into lifestyle and casual bags, camera bags, backpacks, work packs, luggage and travel goods.
Australian Olympic Committee CEO, Matt Carroll, says he’s delighted Crumpler is on board for Tokyo 2020.
“We aim to give our athletes the best possible environment to perform and having Crumpler on the Team ensures the athletes have their luggage covered,” he said.
“It’s good to travel with the best.
“The Australian Team to Tokyo 2020 could be one of the largest ever and they will be travelling with luggage kit that is stylish and dependable.
Crumpler has a retail and online presence in Australia, Europe, USA and Asia, with more than 31 storefronts and distribution across 37 key department store and online retailers worldwide.
