Rimowa is a well-known worldwide as a top luggage brand – luggage with grooves! Or shall we say, Groovy Rimowa! Rimowa luggage fits the bill both ways, both literally and metaphorically. Rimowa cases are, indeed, groovy, displaying a major style statement; everyone would long to aspire for! And literally speaking, the grooved design of Rimowa business and cabin luggage has become the signature of Rimowa and a symbol of great luggage design. Established in Cologne Germany in 1898, in the 1950s Rimowa was the first to launch luggage bags made from structural aluminium. A revolution in luggage had started, and since then Rimowa suitcases would always be identified with light and durable luggage with a distinctive grooved surface. The grooves are still around on the Rimowa suitcase shells but they are now made in tough durable polycarbonate as well as aluminium.
Why buy a Rimowa? Its not only the suave bank robbers who use Rimowa briefcases, as you see them loading bundles of currency into the distinctive grooved aluminium cases, in countless movies.

Durability is another major reason why both leisure and business travellers count on Rimowa luggage.
