A Brief History of the Rimowa Metal Tote

RIMOWA is a company that has been creating innovative and stylish luggage since 1898. Founded by Paul Morszeck and Heinrich Görtz, the company was originally known as Görtz & Morszeck. By 1900, Paul Morszeck was the sole director of the company and in 1931, his son Richard joined and registered the trademark RIMOWA at the Patent Office in Berlin, Germany. This acronym stands for Richard Morszeck Warenzeichen, which translates to “trademark”.

In 1937 after a fire destroyed most materials in their factory, Richard decided to make use of what remained – aluminum – by producing the first ever metal cases. Over time, RIMOWA has continued to innovate with their products and in 2000 they introduced polycarbonate boxes into their range.

Today, RIMOWA produces its products in three countries: Germany, Czech Republic and Canada. The brand is renowned for its quality craftsmanship and attention to detail when it comes to producing luggage that meets customer needs. Their lightweight yet strong materials ensure durability during travel while allowing flexibility when packing items inside the cases.

The Rimowa range offers various styles of suitcases such as carry-ons, checked bags or spinner wheels for ease of movement when traveling through airports or train stations. They also have a selection of luxury totes made from leather or other materials such as nylon for stylish looks that come in different sizes depending on your preference. These totes can be used either for business trips or leisurely vacations with plenty room to fit all your belongings without having to worry about weight restrictions! Finally, Rimowa’s backpacks provide hands-free convenience while keeping items secure inside with adjustable straps and pockets providing quick access when needed on-the-go!
