2016 marks 67 years for Gabee products as an iconic Australian owned accessory and lifestyle company. We've expanded and grown substantially since Heinz Arnheim opened the company doors in Bourke Street, Melbourne in 1949.
When Heinz immigrated to Australia in 1939, he brought with him his European style, German precision and a hard working entrepreneurial spirit and established Gabee Products. The company and brand Gabee were named adoringly after his wife Gabrielle’s nickname. Underpinned by strong customer centric values and an ethos to create bags of difference.
Heinz and Frank developed the iconic Australia brand Cobb & Co leather and luggage in recognition of the intrinsic role Cobb & Co transport coaches played during the Gold rush era. Essential to Australian and New Zealand’s economic growth and development.
The times have changed since, however our commitment to quality, fashion, design and innovation for women, men, children and travel remains. We are inspired by Heinz’ same philosophy today and lead the travel and accessory industry with ground breaking technology and quality products.
