Have you ever misplaced your boarding pass? It can be stressful keeping all travel documents together at hand. This is why we have designed the perfect organizer for your trip. Your boarding passes fit lengthwise. It also has a very convenient pen pocket for filling out travel documents. You can flip through passport pages and see through the clear vinyl window to the last page. There are three additional pockets for baggage claim, travel vouchers, and other paperwork.

We will type any message you request to personalize each passport holder for you.
We are adding a Kickstarter Green passport holder to celebrate our halfway point. It will come with a numbered hand stamped edition card inside.

We chose to make a brilliant yellow wallet because yellow is a lucky color for a wallet in Japan. It is the color of gold and will bring you financial success this year.
This is a long and elegant wallet style for those who still prefer to fill a wallet with necessary receipts, cards, and unfolded bills. It has a large coin case with a zipper which you could also use to protect certain papers.

Personalized navy computer bag. This is an extremely functional computer bag with a classic design utilizing gorgeous materials of 100% wool, strong Japanese canvas, and cowhide leather. There are three ways to carry the bag. The leather handles are sized so that a man or woman can fit them over the shoulder or carry by hand. The soft shoulder strap will adjust to fit any body type and is very comfortable during bike commutes.

We developed this computer bag over the course of eight months with our excellent Japanese bag maker. We put in our own design aesthetic and listened to his comments of how to produce a strong smart computer bag, and here it is!
Protective Storage- A protective zip pocket inside with an elastic holding system for hard drives, and other vulnerable electronics.
Computer Pocket- Behind that is the zipper computer pocket which will fit a laptop computer 13" or smaller.
Extra Padding- We have worked in extra padding with the beautiful quilted stitch pattern inspired by vintage upholstery techniques.
Phone Access- Two phone pockets positioned in the front so you can reach your phone easily weather you wear your bag on the left or right. And many many other pockets.
Metal Feet- To keep your bag clean and dry.

This is the full collection at a very great discount. If you pledge for the full collection we will make different nameplates for each piece so you can give them as gifts if you choose. You may also choose any color combination.
We have added gift wrapping as several people have expressed an interest, and our shipping date is before Valentines day. We will use hand printed Japanese paper and add origami flair. Please add $5.00 to your pledge for this, and select the $5.00 pledge for gift wrapping.
Our last pledge added to help us reach our goal in the next 7 days! It is a personalized "hanko" stamp. This is a CNC cut stamp made of Japanese Box Wood. We will translate your name into Katakana- the alphabet used for foreign names and words in Japanese language. Then the stamp will be made for you. We will also include a red stamp pad. It is the correct red ink for the hanko.
Hanko are used for signing documents, and if you live in Japan you basically use yours every day.
If you have already pledged for the collection please add $18 to your pledge. We will make a note that you will get the hanko. Thank you!
The Business is Pleasure collection was born out of our respect for all things related to doing what we love best-conducting business in an inspiring environment with people striving for the same goals. We have been working as designers in Tokyo for four years after moving here from New York, and it has been such a joy to meet so many designers, architects, sales people and others working hard every day to improve themselves, their office, and their family through business.
We wanted to design a collection of business accessories that helps connect the owner to others at the first meeting in a playful way through the idea of personalization.
Secondly we wanted to combine our love for the gorgeous Royal typewriters that are no longer in production with a line of products that would reflect the same clean design aesthetic of the 1960's. These machines were once the colorful and elegant centerpiece of your desk now replaced by our computers. We bought and restored 2 of these gorgeous vintage American machines here in Tokyo. We will use them to personalize each item from the collection for you.
With these three loves in mind we created a highly functional collection of business accessories that are personalized with any monogram, name, date or message that you would like. We would be so honored if you also respect these same qualities of life and work and consider pledging to support our Kickstarter!
note- International shipping to anywhere in the world is included in the pledge amount.
Please know that we are a cottage design studio and are not able to compete with mass market prices due to quantity of production. This a small limited production run for Kickstarter and our pledge costs reflect that. Thank you we love you!

Risks and challenges
We have both been working as designers in Japan for four years. Takuma has focused on digital media and marketing, while I have been working as a bag and wallet designer. I have worked with many Japanese manufactures and chosen the best two to produce this collection. You can read more about them on our blog at bip.le-vero.com
We are at the fully finished sample stage of our project. We have one set each from this gorgeous collection. We have been promised that production will take 2-3 months. I have been working with the two manufacturers for several years and do not expect many glitches, as we have been developing this collection together for one year.
If we exceed our goal by many pledges then the production time will take longer, possibly 4 months. But we will be so so grateful to you. We will use any extra money to buy much needed design supplies like Pantone books, computer equipment, and dream of dreams a studio space rental.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
