Samsonite luggage series in emerald green

Blankenhain, October 2013 – The year 2013 is shining in new colors: A striking green is the new trend color. This absolute must-have in the world of colors has been enjoying wide popularity in textiles, interior furnishings and also in the automotive industry. With its masterbatches, the GRAFE Group is enabling the application of this trend color in the area of plastics.


With the help of the GRAFE Group, Samsonite, the luggage manufacturer, is also implementing this radiant and vibrant green in its new luggage series „Cosmolite“. The gemstone color, metallic effects and special carbon look of the luggage surface, create a feel of classic luxury while at the same time appearing strikingly cool. Back in the year 2008, the GRAFE Group had developed a suitable formulation to generate the necessary foil quality. The masterbatch had to achieve a good workability and a high color brilliance combined with a metallic gloss. This successful cooperation from the past has brought Samsonite and the GRAFE Group back together again in this year.
