Mar. 2, 2007 — Ricardo Beverly Hills, of Mirada, Calif., claims a first in the luggage industry: the use of nanotechnology integrated into suitcases and bags. The Capistrano Light Luggage Line features lightweight Nano-Tex treated fabric, which uses nanotechnology to “provide superior protection against stains and outdoor elements.” The result: luggage that stays cleaner and maintains a new look even after use.

“After a great deal of research and testing, we identified the usage of nanotechnology as the key to creating lightweight fabric that provides superior protection against stains and other elements,” said Robert Dodson, President of Ricardo Beverly Hills. “We selected Nano-Tex fabric and the end result is beautiful luggage that will withstand the test of time.”
In 2006, Ricardo Beverly Hills was honored by the Travel Goods Association as Product Innovation Award Winner for its luggage collection that weighs itself with a built-in digital scale to help travelers avoid airline overweight luggage penalties.

“Our company has a long history of creating innovative products that are designed to advance the luggage industry as a whole and deliver solutions to consumers,” Dodson added.
