MADE IN GERMANY
is for Rimowa
Named after Richard Morszeck, the son of the orginal founder, Rimowa is the superstar of light luggage. The ultra-light aluminum and polycarbonate suitcases with their telltale grooved exterior are cult items and status symbols, allowing professional travelers to spot one another immediately. As early as 1898, Rimowa manufactured wooden suitcases. In 1950, the company launched its first aluminum model. In 1972, Richard Morszeck’s son Dieter joined the Cologne-based company at only 19. After buying into the brand in 2017, the French luxury goods group LVMH now owns 80 percent of the company.
