Kaehler Luggage was founded in 1920 in Chicago’s north shore town of Evanston, IL (original location pictured above, 1932). Walter Kaehler, a town locksmith, began receiving requests for new steamer trunks. Kaehler recognized a need and began to stock and sell these trunks, and so emerged Kaehler Luggage - WorldTraveler.com . Today, four generations later, Kaehler Luggage is still managed under the Kaehler family name. Kaehler Luggage also remains true to our Chicago roots with five different Chicagoland locations.
