If you've struggled to find that perfect sleeve for your tablet, then you're on the right page!
A couple of months ago I designed and made the "Holy Grail" of computer cases. My sister-in-law confessed to me she had visited no less than 50 leather goods stores (she travels a lot!) trying to find a leather sleeve for her laptop. She simply could not find what she wanted - a high quality leather sleeve for her computer.
To cut to the chase:
After a year of searching she had all but given up. She was on holiday here in New Zealand and we got to talking about leather (she knew I did leather work) and asked me if I could make a custom leather sleeve for her laptop.
She gave me the dimensions of her laptop and I set to work.
A few days later and she was the proud (and ecstatically happy!) new owner of a custom-made, hand-stitched leather computer sleeve.
But then something unexpected happened...
When she got back home to Australia - two separate people noticed her computer sleeve and asked where they could get one ...and this was only in her first week back!
Long story short:
There has been enough interest in a custom, hand-made leather computer sleeve that I've decided to offer some here on Kickstarter.
Not only that but,
I've had people interested not just in laptop sleeves ... but tablet/iPad sleeves too.
This project is YOUR chance to get a totally custom and absolutely made-to-order hand-stitched leather sleeve for your laptop or tablet.
Here are some features of this custom-fit leather computer sleeve:
- 100% custom-made for your specific laptop or tablet (a truly unique sleeve made just for you)
- Italian leather (Not only will I be using Italian leather …but I import it myself direct from Italy)
- Leather is full-grain (unmodified during tanning, it shows the natural markings and characteristics of the leather)
- Vegetable-tanned leather (this process of tanning does not use any nasty chemicals and is 100% natural)
- Simple and minimalist design
- Hand-made (your leather sleeve will be absolutely hand-made - from hand-cutting the leather through to the hand-stitching)
- Protect your device from bumps and scratches (not only is the outside of the leather sleeve hard-wearing …but the inside is soft and smooth)
100% Custom-Made To Fit YOUR Laptop or Tablet
With so many different types and models of computers and tablets available now, it's a complete no brainer to have a sleeve custom-made ...if you appreciate quality and seek to protect your device.
To make your custom-fit computer sleeve, I will use the details you submit in your Backer Survey. I will use the length, width and thickness to calculate how to cut and stitch your leather sleeve from scratch.
Here is how you will be able to pledge for and receive your custom sleeve:
Step #1 - Pledge for Reward
Pledge for either a Tablet/iPad Sleeve Reward or a Laptop Sleeve Reward.
Step #2 - Fill Out Backer Survey (After project is funded)
Once this project has ended and been funded...
You'll receive the Backer Survey for where you will then let me know either of these things:
#1 - The length, width and thickness or your device
#2 - The make and model of your device (I can then research the dimensions for myself)
Step #3 - I Ship Your Custom Sleeve To You
I will ship your custom sleeve to the address you've given in the Backers Survey.
With the size of the cover pieces calculated from the dimensions of your device, the leather will be cut to fit. It will then be hand-stitched together using traditional leather working methods. This is all done entirely by hand.
Full-Grain Vegetable Tanned Italian Leather
Your sleeve will be made from Italian vegetable tanned leather -- this is where the leather has been preserved through a natural tanning process.
This full grain leather shows natural markings and characteristics of the leather.
You will be able to choose from either Brown or Black (you can do this once the project is funded):
Minimalist design for everyday use
Made as an everyday necessity for your computer, the cover is made for its performance and minimalist design. Covers are expected to be functional and durable for their lifetime.
Protects your computer from scratches
The cover is useful to protect your computer from undesirable scratches and dust. Making it suitable to put your computer into a backpack or briefcase for the office, cafe or outdoor adventure.
Before I continue, here are what some previous backers have said:
"I got my bag yesterday and it’s amazing! Originally my plan was to give it to her, but it’s just too nice to not keep for myself so I’m ordering a second one! "
"I just received the bag and it is awesome!"
"I received my bag in Norway two days ago. I love it. It can hold A4 format documents, which is very important to me... Great. Thanks."
"Thanks so much! Very pleased to have something so uniquely and lovingly created."
"Just got my leather cover and you did another excellent job Stephanie. You convinced me, with an update, to get extra notebooks. The simplicity of the notebook blends well with the cover and I already got a compliment while using it at the cafe."
"My cover just arrived, and it looks great! I like the natural texture of the leather, and its not too thick or bulky."
Okay, let's get down to business...
Remember, you will be able to provide me with the dimensions (or Make/Model) after the project has ended. You will also be able to select Black or Brown leather later.
