About

Elegance, Design, Sustainability.
Elegance, Design, Sustainability.

This is for the creatives, the CEOs, the managers. A compliment to every person mastering the daily life of business. Leave a lasting impression on people you meet, by choosing the finest briefcase for men. 

Sustainable materials and real craftsmanship has never looked sexier.

This briefcase will change the way you think and act. Get him now and be the first experiencing something special.

    
                                  

It all began with a dream, a vision.... a statement. We wanted something truly unique. Designing and creating this briefcase has been a difficult task, but eventually we are proud to present to you our best piece yet!

Have you ever heard of a wooden briefcase before? Well here it is!

We love working with natural materials, so we decided to create the impossible. A beautiful looking timepiece. Sustainable materials beautifully shaped by modern machines. 

The Result? A masterpiece.

Why we created the Companion?

Because there has been no such thing yet.

The Companion is like a custom tailored suit. It is YOUR suit. Not one of thousands. This is not for all. 

This is for the people that care. 

Easy to use. Everything has its own place.
Easy to use. Everything has its own place.

Each case comes with a lot of different features. Every Item has its own place, is safely stored and quickly accessible, when you need it. No searching, no destroyed important documents, no pens flying around your case. A clean and organised briefcase has never been easier to retain.

Personalization

Standard

It doesn't matter, which Companion you buy, every case comes with a customized foam, that fits your 13" laptop or smaller. Tell us the exact Modell you carry with you and we will adjust the Companion only for you. 

You don't have any laptop yet, or switching it every year or two? No problem, we got you covered. Each Companion can also com with a "one size fits all" foam, where your laptop or any other Item is still safe und flexible when you buy a new one.

Personalization

And we are not done yet! Buy the Companion with a personalization feature and you will receive it with your name, company logo, or favorite quote. This is the ultimate blood brotherhood. Here it becomes yours... and yours alone.

Full personalization

This is the real deal, the full madness for the masters in business. A one time offer. Get your completely own designed interior with everything mentioned above and even more to customize. We will have a Skype call with you create together your personal masterpiece. Sounds great? Yeah, this offer is limited to a very small amount of people and you can be one of them.

The Design is greatly influenced in shape and size set by international security guidelines. Even though this briefcase might not even be used for travelling, we tried to fit all important things in the Companion, while guaranteeing a comfortable handling for the owner. 

Comparing the size to a major known smartphone you can see, that the briefcase has a relatively slim shape. Well, some of the other laptop cases may be thiner in the beginning, but after putting all your cables, smartphone and documents in it...

Bamboo has never been looking so good on a case. Designed for the future, built of natural materials.

 Bamboo (Coffee Look):

Using bamboo as the main material for the case made this project possible. Although it is not a real wood, but rather a special sort grass, this plant is a real all-rounder when it comes to stability, weight and sustainability.

All these specifications have been critical making this Idea becoming reality. We needed to shape the surface like a MacBook to increase the steadiness. Still the case needed to be as thin as possible, offering enough space for all  devices and documents we wanted to fit in there. Another important factor was the weight of the case. 

That was the point where everybody thought we were crazy. Making a briefcase out of wood?! Well, as you can see we kept on going and luckily figured out a way getting it suitable for daily use. 

And we did! The Companion may not be the lightest briefcase out on the market and still it's by far not the heaviest. With an estimated weight of 1,6KGs (around 3,5lbs) this is easy to handle.

Mahogany:

We would like to go with you even one step further. Mahogany is one of the most precious sorts of wood. So why not using it for a briefcase? 

That's what we thought too and now we are offering you this even more luxurious material. It is a lot darker than bamboo and worldwide known in the exclusive furniture market. We are working on the prototype and hopefully presenting it soon. 

We guarantee you the same delivery time for the mahogany case, as for the bamboo one, so go ahead and be the first getting it.

Finest Leather (Cowhide):

Even the leather is as fair and sustainable produced as possible. The skin is stained with natural based colors and meets the critical german regulations. It is very sturdy and easy to maintain. You'll find everything in our cleaning kit, that comes with every Companion. The colour can be described as brown, matte, vintage. The stitching underlines the elegant design of the pocket, by having a different colour, which is similar to the colour of the wood.

Buying the full personalisation of the Companion gets you to choose, between many different leather types and colours.

Other design features:

  • hidden hinges (brushed silver)
  • leather straps holding the cover
  • 3 Code personal lock (brushed silver)
  • smooth handle bar
First Impression on a presentation. Confidence is a mindset. The Companion has your back.
First Impression on a presentation. Confidence is a mindset. The Companion has your back.

 Cleaning Kit:

Yes, we also thought about that. Although the case is easy to retain, every once in a while you need to polish the surface of the case, small scratches of the everyday use are unavoidable and not a problem. Natural materials are lasting long, but only if you are taking care of them. With every Companion, we send you a complete cleaning kit and a small guidance.

You will get them in tiny bag, that carries items like, oil, polish towel, sandpaper, wax and some other things making you Companion look brand new. Take care of your Companion as you take care of you and he will be by your side for a lifetime.

The Companion should fit to you or your business like a custom tailored suit, that's why we came up with some special features just for business owners.

You have your own company and are in a market, where good looking employees or managers is part of the success of your company? Then we have something special for you!

Times of cheaply produced pencils, journals, or other poorly produced promotion articles with your Logo on it are over now. By buying the Company Edition you don't only get 5 Companions for a very generous price, you will also get YOUR Company Logo engraved on the Companion. More personalized is only a "lactose" free Chai Latte.

It's up to you where you want to put the logo, or how big the engravement should be. We will have a Skype call with you discussing all the details.

You have your own retail Store? We are always searching for new retail partners. The Company Edition is perfect to get the first Companion into your store. Skype with us and we will see how we can work together in future. 

Other retailers will be able to order a Companion in Fall 2016. So, this is your chance to get it even sooner.

We love our Companion and hopefully, you do to. Help us funding the campaign and with every new Stretch goal achieved by you, we want to thank you with some very nice additional gimmicks.

Presenting the Companion on Kickstarter was without question the best decision we could make. Designing a whole new product and not really knowing how future customers would react, this was the initial reason for us to create the campaign.

Setting up a whole new production line is expensive and way out of the budget of two students. We are aware of the work and process it takes to deliver the Companion in the promised quality within the delivery times. Several experts of different subjects are helping us out running a smoothly campaign.

Especially the feedback of the community is key to improving the design and quality ensuring your fully satisfaction with us and the Companion. This Platform is made for the "doers", creators, and young aspiring entrepreneurs as we are, that have great visions and now also the right stage to present their creations.

Crowdfunding brings people together. It gives backers something in common, like supporting a campaign. This also allowed us to bring our project into the whole world.

We understand that backing a project here on Kickstarter is not only about getting a nice reward, but giving a young company the trust and the chance to offer great things.

So we thank you and Kickstarter for believing in our projects!

Nisantari is a small design company taking on the fight against global players producing mass products and losing its focus on the initial customers. The fashion industry has turned into a war zone shooting with the lowest price.

Late 2015 we founded Nisantari focusing again on the design and quality of every single product. Satisfying the demand for business Accessories we started with selling cashmere scarves produced in Istanbul (Turkey). During our travels, we discovered the lack of good looking business cases.

As Mahatma Ghandi used to say: " Be the change you wish to see in the world"

So here we are trying to serve you something special! Improving the world, by creating beautiful products, lasting over years.

Our team is young, motivated and creative. We believe in the power of good Style and "The Companion" is just the start of our journey. We invite you to go this way with us. Every single feedback is more than welcome and our team is doing it's best answering all your questions. Nisantari sells products inspired by working men all over the world.

So spread the word with us and together we bring back the true style of gentlemen. Thank you a lot for your support, love the team of Nisantari.

                                   

A big thank you also goes to all other incredibly helpful Partners. Without you, this Campaign has not been possible!

Risks and challenges

As you may have seen Nisantari is a young aspiring company, that hasn't been around for decades. Although we have been founded just one year ago and are enrolled students at the university, we know what we are doing.

Guided by experts in controlling, production partners and shipping fulfillment, we can ensure you a safe delivery of the Companion.
Every item will be checked by us, before it is shipped to you. We control the whole process and visit regularly the different manufacturers.

After a successful funding, we are working hard on delivering the Companion not only in time but 2 days before our deadline we claim in the rewards. Why?
Because we want you to experience the Companion as early as possible.

Naturally, there may be issues that arise during manufacturing the Companion. But we promise you to do everything, that is possible, that you can hold the Companion in time.
We teamed up with a professional Producer, that creates Bamboo Products over 20 Years.
The Mahogany Case is still in the making and will be ready soon. This process is taking a bit longer because shaping this sort of wood, is not as easy as with bamboo. But don't worry, we know that it is working out fine.

We try to be as transparent as possible and post weekly updates of the production process and any problems that may occur. Stay in touch with our Newsletter, or visit the Updates Page to be Up-to-Date.

So relax and take the chance having the Companion first in your life.
We thank you for the trust, put in us and our product.
