About

Last year we brought our unique Switch Bag to life with the help of the Kickstarter Community (check out our previous campaign). 

Our previous campaign was pretty fun and surpassed our expectations for sure — 925 backers!
Our previous campaign was pretty fun and surpassed our expectations for sure — 925 backers!

It was an amazing experience for our team but best of all was that we were able to create something that so many people enjoy! Check out some of the feedback from our backers:

Right now Kickstarter is running their Make 100 campaign. Make 100 encourages creators to produce limited edition rewards limited to 100. Since our Deluxe Switch Bags are hand-made — and not easy to produce in high numbers — this campaign is perfect for us! We want to use this opportunity to introduce two new limited edition Deluxe colors: Burgundy and Ultramarine. These hand-made leather bags will be limited to 100 each. We also want to produce another round of our very popular (and sold out) Chocolate color.

Everyone is an Early Bird

If you're joining us on this Kickstarter journey, then YOU ARE AN EARLY BIRD! This is your chance to get a deluxe leather case for your Nintendo Switch at the absolute best price. And since it's limited edition this might be your only chance to get these colors.

Don't want to wait? We still have some stock at our online Séfu shop available at full retail price. 

About the Séfu Switch Bag

We designed a minimal bag with a focus on protection, accessibility, and quality materials that was just the right size to carry your Switch and a few daily essentials. The removable center divide not only protects your screen but it also holds 12 games. And because it’s removable it means your bag will have a life beyond the Switch, opening up the possibility to carry a variety of things -- even a mirrorless camera and a spare lens.

There's a lot of great things to say about the Deluxe Switch Bag, but this video by One Tech Traveller sums it up nicely: 


Materials

Our Deluxe bag is made from a cowhide exterior and a lambskin interior. Each bag is hand-crafted by skilled artisans. A layer of Poron XRD Extreme Impact Protection foam is used between the layers of leather for extra peace of mind. Our metal hardware uses premium materials like brass for long-lasting durability. 

Improvements and Differences

  •  Chocolate will use the same hand-finished full-grain leather and antique colored brass hardware as before.
  •  Burgundy and Ultramarine Deluxe Switch Bags will use the same silver colored hardware and smooth waterproof leather as our Noir Deluxe Bags. 
  •  The leather strap will have 5 holes of adjustability vs 3 on the previous generation, allowing the bag to hang slightly lower. 
  •  The center divide is slightly re-designed to hold the magnets better and improve the connection to the side magnets.

Carry More Than Just Your Switch

We wanted to make sure this bag will be useful beyond the life of the Switch. What do you carry in your Switch Bag?

Removable Center Divide  

The removable center divide protects your screen, holds 12 games, and is held in place by magnets! It comes included with every Switch Bag. 

ADD-ON: Deluxe Lens Divider

This lens divider is a great accessory for people wanting to change the way they organize their Deluxe Switch Bag.

  • Holds a normal prime lens up to 76mm in diameter and 11cm tall.
  • Keeps the lens separate from your camera.
  • Has pockets for four SD cards. 
  • Hand made and withe the same suede leather as the Deluxe Switch Bag’s lining.

If you'd like a Deluxe Lens Divider included with your order, simply add $20 to your Pledge for a total of $145 USD. That's 20% off retail!


When you are not carrying the switch you can use your Switch Bag for a mirrorless camera and an extra lens. Many DSLR cameras also fit with a pancake lens and a spare normal prime lens.

Getting It All in There

If you'd like to carry your Switch, Switch Dock, HDMI, and AC Power Adapter all at the same time, you can, but it's a tight fit. Here's a video explaining how to do it. 

Shipping and VAT

We always try hard to limit Shipping and Taxes for our backers. There will be no hidden fees for backers in the USA or Singapore. Depending on the number of backers in Canada, the EU, and Japan we may be able to ship in bulk and pay the import duty for you as we did in our previous campaign where your VAT was included in the price of the bag. For all other regions, please be familiar with your country's import policies and know that you may be responsible for customs duty or VAT when you receive your package. We will be shipping world-wide at a flat shipping rate of $20, regardless of your location. 

About Séfu 

We are a functional fashion brand. We design products that solve problems, are easy to use, and that look fantastic. Our name is pronounced ”Say Foo”. This sound has a few Japanese interpretations that are relevant to our brand, including: Safe and Fresh Breeze. With the Séfu Switch Bag we created a simple bag that is protective, stylish, well organized, and easy to access. Now you can bring your Switch with you everywhere you go!

Thomas Grové, Founder and Creative Director
   Hello! I'm Thomas Grové. Before becoming a fashion designer, I was a videogame designer. I also collaborated with David Sirlin for five years on the Yomi card game.

Our Switch Bag project is near and dear to my heart for several reasons: First of all it was inspired by my son who told me that he wanted "a bag that Papa designs" for his Nintendo Switch. Next, I'm just a huge fan of the Switch. My most recent game design job was in freemium mobile games which -- I have to be honest -- I like premium games with real buttons! The Switch has captured our imaginations, it has great design, and has proven there's still a market for premium games. And finally, this project has been a way for me to connect my past three years of fashion design experience with my ten years of game design experience.

Help Spread The Word, Share Our Campaign

We appreciate any exposure you can help bring to this project. Please share with any friends who you think will find our Deluxe Switch Bag interesting. Here are some links to make it easier: 

Risks and challenges

Manufacturing and fulfillment are pretty unpredictable. On our previous project we had a few issues that mainly affected our Pro and Standard Switch Bag backers. For instance: our factory delayed production by several weeks, Canadian backers saw their packages stuck in customs for 3 weeks, and the US postal service had several packages in limbo for a month. Our Deluxe bags are far more predictable since they are hand-made in small batches.

As before, we commit to full transparency during our manufacturing and fulfillment process. If there's an issue we will communicate it to our backers and do everything possible to fix the situation. Any customer care issues submitted to us via our email hello@sefu.jp, kickstarter messages, kickstarter comments, or our facebook messenger usually get a reply within 24 hours.
