History in action

In 1948, Adolf Konopitzky – grandfather of the current managing director Michael Alexander Konopitzky – founded the “Konopitzky" shop in Vienna. Although the main focus of the shop was on handbags, the range also included small leather articles such as wallets and belts – and suitcases.
In 1978, Adolf junior took over the management, expanding the shop in Hütteldorferstrasse 135 in Vienna to its current size.

 „We concentrate on offering customers an extensive range of products, designed to appeal to as wide a target audience as possible.“

Since becoming managing director in 2005, Michael Alexander Konopitzky has strategically modernised the business, renovating the interior of the shop and focussing the product range. He also launched the online shop kofferwelt.at in 2014 to cater to international customers. Revolving around luggage and suitcases, kofferwelt.at focuses on quality brands.
 „Our web shop includes items that are difficult to find anywhere else in Europe.
Where required, we’re happy to deliver to the ends of the world.
