In the Bag

Next time you go on a journey, take one with you. RedCamper is a line of bags created from the paraphernalia we collect on our travels – most notably from those pre-digital curiosities, slides.

In 2006, Maura Gramzinski made herself a bag out of vintage slides. Such was the response to it, that she launched RedCamper, and now has her products in boutiques, galleries and museums in five different countries.

The company is dedicated to road trips, brawling siblings, and living room slideshows. It's also dedicated to her grandparents, who passed on their wanderlust and love of the open road, as well as their sense of humor. Which is why, says Maura, there is a naked lady on every bag.

Grandad would always insert one surprise image into his slideshows, to make sure the family was paying attention – usually a naked lady. So alongside the images of Hearst Castle and Fort Lauderdale in the 1960s and 1970s, and Germany in the 1950s, there will always be a naked lady. RM
