Originally founded in 1970 before fading into obscurity, the Andiamo was relaunched in 2018.
We live in a world of constant reinvention and with the rise of social media and sharing so much of our lives with others, the reinvention of self has become more prevalent than ever beforeAndiamo CEO — Yi Zhang

Andiamo’s suitcase is a stylish mix of old and new. The aim from the brand was to compete with newer smart luggage brands — offering features like inbuilt USB charging — but without deviating from what made them popular back in the 1970s. Solid, well-made luggage.
Andiamo Classic Summary
The beauty of the old-school style and simplicity means that Andiamo’s debut suitcase has missed the trend of trying to maximise dimensions to airlines hand luggage sizes. As a result, it’s one of the most carry-on friendly suitcases around. The Classic Carry-On comfortably fits virtually all major carriers even on smaller short haul aircraft and the ever-shrinking overhead bins!
While Andiamo’s suitcase is certainly not packed with as many smart features as alternatives like Plevo and OVIS, it strikes a nice balance between simplicity and being tech-friendly. Unlike traditional suitcases it supports USB charging, has an RFID pocket for your wallet and cards, and there are multiple dividers for tablets and gadgets inside the case.
The Andiamo Classic Carry-On is a real head turner, with a combination of durability, practicality and looks that is difficult to match. It’s an exciting start for the reinvented luggage veteran, and we look forward to their future smart luggage ranges.
