In 1930, a trio of brothers decided to start a business manufacturing canvas bags. These Frenchmen- Victor, Alfred and Gabriel Lafuma- created a company that eighty years later would be one of the world's top ten manufacturers of outdoor-oriented clothing, shoes and accessories. SHOEBACCA.com is proud to offer Lafuma gear at outstanding prices, ready to ship today!
Lafuma's breakthrough came in 1936, when they created the first backpack to have a metal frame. This innovation in construction came at the perfect time, as the French government enacted legislation giving everyone paid holidays (what a wonderful year). Camping quickly became a favorite hobby, and Lafuma's backpacks were ready to hit the hills with the people of France.
The French military became a steady customer into WWII and beyond, but by the late 50s and 60s, Lafuma had expanded their lines to include tents, camping beds and other camping equipment.
Lafuma continued to expand their lines throughout the coming decades, and today is a powerhouse of myriad pieces of adventure gear. SHOEBACCA.com offers a great selection of Lafuma products to help you on your adventures!
