About Samdam Retail

Samdam Retail was founded in May 2015 by Wim D’haese, who will put the leather goods specialist Arijs in Aalst and the remaining Samdam stores back on the map.

Arijs and Samdam are longtime leaders in the retail of travel accessories, leather goods, handbags and luggage. Arijs was founded by Wim's grandparents, Arijs–De Winter. His parents, Cecile Arijs and Jozef D’haese, took over the retail company Ganterie Gaston Samdam in 1979. Wim decided to focus on wholesale operations and in 1995 he founded Samdam Business Gifts. After 20 years, he returned to his first love, retail, buying the company back from his sister.

Samdam Retail chooses fashion above all else and has a large selection of trendy and strong brands. Samsonite, American Tourister, Tumi, Dakine, Herschel, Eastpak, Nomad, Hedgren, Kipling are some of the best brands making suitcases, backpacks and travel bags.

Our stores also provide a wide range of handbags, wallets purses and accessories. Samdam Retail’s offer includes, among others, bags and accessories from Coccinelle, Furla, Michael Kors, Nathan-Baume, LiuJo, Guess, Versace, Calvin Klein, Tommy Hilfiger, Boo and Laurent David.
