That year, Seward Trunk and Bag Company made its first trunk and Seward has been a part of American lifestyles ever since. Salesmen hauled their samples from town to town in Seward cases. Immigrants moving west bought Seward chests to hold their possessions. World travelers filled the cargo holds of ocean liners with Seward steamers. Students took Seward lockers off to college, and soldiers brought Seward trunks back home with them when they returned from wars.
All of them appreciated the durable materials, solid construction, and careful craftsmanship that went into Seward products. As a result, it only took a few short years for Seward to grow into the largest manufacturer of trunks in the world.
You can now find Seward products in dormitories, dens, offices, living rooms, family rooms and bedrooms. They are used for end tables and night stands as well as for extra storage. They are purchased for their looks as well as their versatility.
