Founded in Cologne in 1898 by Paul Morszeck, RIMOWA is one of the leading European manufacturers of high-quality travel accessories and suitcases made of aluminum and polycarbonate. While always placing great emphasis on a light and stable construction, RIMOWA has a long innovation history. Its characteristic design, the folded aluminum structure, which still distinguishes it from other suitcases, was first introduced in 1950. The first Rimowa aluminum suitcase with the grooves was born. The grooved design makes the Rimowa suitcase unmistakable to this day and has its fans worldwide in the international jet set.
