  • ZÜCA Artist Collection Carry-All Bags Are the #1 Choice for Professional Stylists and Make-up Artists
  • Sleek, Super-Organized Bags Designed for On-The-Go

    MILPITAS, Calif., June 25, 2011 – ZÜCA, Inc., will showcase their sleek Artist Collection carry-all bags at the International Make-up Artist Trade Show (IMATS) in Los Angeles June 25-26, 2011 in Booth #418. The ZÜCA Artist Collection is now the carry-all bag of choice for professional stylists and make-up artists. The Collection includes three products: the ZÜCA Pro Artist Case, the ZÜCA Sport Artist Case and the Artist Backpack.

    Designed with a stacked utility pouch system that easily organizes supplies, the Collection is a flawless solution for artists on the go who value organization, style and perfection. Utility pouches are lined with durable, easy to clean vinyl and are removable and hand washable. The clear top allows stylists to quickly see what's inside, and provides a label on the outside for specifying package contents. Designed with clever organization in mind, the Artist Backpack transforms into a sleek mobile workstation that includes a thermal pocket for flat irons and curling irons; a mesh pocket and strap to hold blow dryers and a special strap that holds the door open, so artists can easily access everything inside.


    The ZÜCA Pro Artist Case comes with a hand washable insert bag made from heavy duty ballistic nylon and coated with water resistant polyurethane. Built for the wear and tear of the on-the-go artist, the Pro Artist Case is supported by an ultra-light aluminum alloy frame that doubles as a convenient seat and can hold up to 300 pounds. So well made, the case comes with a lifetime warranty. The four inch polyurethane wheels absorb shock and makes for a seriously silent ride. And because each wheel is recessed, the bag slides into airplane overheads without a shove or grunt. Lightweight aerospace technology, durable fabrics, and multiple compartments mean that frequently used effects are always fully protected and within reach. Key features include:

    • One small and four large clear, vinyl lined utility pouches stack like drawers an can be clearly labeled on the outside making an easy, very accessible system for keeping supplies clean and organized
    • Expandable vinyl lined front storage area perfect for tall items
    • 41 inche telescoping handle
    • Ballistic nylon travel cover that matches the color of the bag

    The ZÜCA Sport Artist Case includes a stacked dual-wheel system that makes climbing stairs and curbs a breeze. The Sport Artist case comes with a hand washable, replaceable insert bag made from durable nylon and polyester and includes the ultra-light aluminum alloy frame that doubles as a convenient seat and can hold up to 300 pounds. Key features include:

    • Four clear, vinyl lined utility pouches that stack like drawers and can be clearly labeled on the outside making an easy, very accessible system for keeping supplies clean and organized
    • 39.5 inche telescoping handle
    • MSRP: $209

    • A thermal pocket for flat irons and curling irons

    • Built in straps easily secures the Backpack to the Pro or Sport

    ZÜCA, Inc. products have a look that is exclusively their own. While traditional luggage has the frame on the inside, the ZÜCA Pro's anodized aluminum alloy frame is on the outside (a patented exoskeleton design). From a design perspective, this accomplishes several things. First, it provides users with more interior packing space. Second, it protects the soft insert bags and all of the personal valuables inside. Third, the soft insert bag can be removed, so it can be cleaned or replaced. Finally, and most novel, users can sit on their ZÜCA carry-all, because it has a comfortable and convenient built-in seat on the top of each bag that can hold up to 300 lbs.

  • Company Backgrounder

  • ZÜCA® carry-alls have revolutionized the way people transport their personal belongings with a bold, yet functional, patented design. Unlike other bags that put the frames inside, ZÜCA's aluminum alloy frames are on the outside (exoskeleton), which improves functionality and provides more packing space. It also enables customers to remove the soft insert bags for washing and more durable care. Perhaps the most novel and recognizable feature is the ZÜCA integrated seat, which allows users to actually sit on the top of their bag, supporting up to 300 pounds. The result is a look that is exclusively ZÜCA.


    ZÜCA Products Solve a Significant Health Problem


    The flagship ZÜCA carry-all product, the ZÜCA Sport, was created to address a heavy problem: children's backpacks. Today, children's back pain and injury equals that of adults, and back pain is the second leading cause of medical complaints in the United States.


    The ZÜCA Sport, was the springboard to a core product line that has truly revolutionized how people roll through life. Students set the trend in motion (quite literally) and the ZÜCA Sport has become a familiar accessory at schools, on sports fields and at bus stops. Athletes particularly love them for transporting cumbersome sports gear. Then the unexpected happened. Parents began "ZÜCAnapping" their kid's ZÜCA Sport for their own business and personal use.


    ZÜCA responded to the demand for a travel and business bag when it launched the ZÜCA Pro in late 2007, and has steadily added half a dozen new products since then. Today, the company has sold more than half a million ZÜCAs in the U.S., Canada and more than 25 countries worldwide.


    The ZÜCA Models


    The flagship model, the ZÜCA Sport, allows customers to select different frame colors and interiors to create more than 400 unique models. Its stacked dual-wheel system makes climbing stairs and curbs a breeze. The wheels light up when they roll for visibility and safety. Kids love them because they can sit on them. Parents love them because they hold up to the school yard torture test. The ZÜCA Sport has a suggested retail price of $135 to $155.


    The ZÜCA Pro was designed specifically for travel and has all of the functionality of the Sport model. An ideal carry-all carry-on, it includes innovative packing pouches that maximize space while fitting a week's worth of clothing inside its compact frame. With a recessed wheel system, the ZÜCA Pro easily navigates aircraft aisles and fits conveniently into most aircraft overhead compartments. It even comes with a clear zipped FAA compliant toiletry bag and travel cover! The ZÜCA Pro has a suggested retail price of $285 and comes with a lifetime warranty. How's that for value?


    The ZÜCA Artist Collection is now the #1 bag for professional stylists and make-up artists. The Collection includes three products: the ZÜCA Pro Artist Case, the ZÜCA Sport Artist Case and the Artist Backpack. Designed with a stacked utility pouch system that easily organizes supplies, the Collection is a flawless solution for artists on the go who value organization, style and perfection. Utility pouches are fully-lined with durable, easy to clean vinyl. The clear top allows stylists to quickly see what's inside. Designed with clever organization in mind, the Artist Backpack transforms into a sleek mobile workstation that includes a thermal pocket for flat irons and curling irons; a mesh pocket and strap to hold blow dryers and a special strap that holds the door open so artists can easily access everything inside. The ZÜCA Pro Artist Case retails for $295. The ZÜCA Sport Artist Case retails for $209 and comes in a variety of colorful personalities. The ZÜCA Artist Backpack retails for $129.


    The ZüZÜCA model is a carry-all for small cats and dogs (under 15 pounds) and doubles as a safe animal car seat. Owners may design their own ZüZÜCA by selecting from the many different frame and insert colors, so there's one sure to fit any personality. The soft insert bag has mesh incorporated for breathability, and a leash hook inside the bag secures pets safely to the interior. This piece is like having a roll cage in the car, because the ZüZÜCA can be secured into the car by using a seatbelt, which provides the safest ride possible for your pet. The ZüZÜCA has a suggested retail price of $150.
