Suitcases & More
When David Stoller founded Suitcases & More in Phoenix in 1985, his goal was to offer consumers quality travel products in a market he felt did not represent the category well. Established almost as an afterthought after Stoller diversified the family-owned travel agency he helped start three years earlier, he sought out new products from relatively young travel goods companies that would separate Suitcases & More from other stores. Over the years, Stoller has added many well-known and established names to its brand assortment.
“We choose suppliers by their desire to be different, responsible, and reliable,” Stoller says. “We helped break a mold of traditional luggage stores by becoming more of a travel store and providing products that were meant for travel and not just for looking good. Support from our vendors, product reliability, and price reliability continue to drive us forward.”
Suitcases and More, Inc. is located at 9301 E. Shea Blvd., Scottsdale, AZ 85260; 480-860-0038; firstname.lastname@example.org.
In 2006, two traveling professionals tired of constantly looking for that “better” suitcase put their heads together to found Sttelli, with the goal of creating a stylish alternative that also delivers customer value.
“Sttelli’s suitcases and travel accessories strive to give travelers the tools to have a fun, hassle-free travel experience,” states Elias Gutt. “Our luggage lines are beautifully designed with both practicality and the traveler’s budget in mind.”
Sttelli luggage uses easy-to-identify luggage colors and name tags in beautiful combinations; Sttelli’s travel accessories aim to cover most travelers’ in-flight comfort needs and “away from home” amenities.

Scrubba by Calibre8
Scrubba by Calibre8 was formed in 2012 by Ash Newland, inspired by his difficulty washing clothes during preparations to climb Mt Kilimanjaro. He created a flexible washboard embedded within a sealable bag. The resulting pocket-size device weighs less than 5 oz and provides a machine-quality wash, anywhere – with minimal use of time and water. Fast-forward five years, and over 100,000 travelers have benefited from the Scrubba wash bag on their own adventures, gaining attention and funding through Shark Tank Australia.
“We simply aren’t interested in doing the same as everyone else,” states Ash Newland, who is also a patent attorney. “Scrubba products are durable, multi-functional, lightweight, and portable, and the company continues to adapt and improve its range to ensure that its products remain the easiest to use, most practical travel accessories on the market.”
Staple products include the Scrubba W pack – a wash bag, dry bag, and backpack rolled into one – and the Scrubba weightless wallet, which offers a virtually weightless, water-resistant means to carry cards and cash. Companion products include the Scrubba microfiber travel towel, for partially drying clothes or for drying off after a shower or swim, and the bulk-free Scrubba inflatable coat hangers that enable clothes to be dried anywhere.
