Rustic Manhattan - part II

Rustic Hand-Stitched and Waxed Vegetable Dyed Leather Mini Portfolio (or Mini iPad Case) with Brass Stud Closure (LEO Design)

Here's a versatile and interesting piece: a small leather portfolio (perfect for notes, receipts or travel documents) which will also accommodate a mini iPad. It is hand-stitched in NYC of vegetable-dyed leather and the seams are finished with hand-waxing. A brass stud closure keeps everything secure. Click on the photo to learn more about it.


Rustic Hand-Stitched and Waxed Vegetable Dyed Leather iPad Case (LEO Design)

This piece, just a little larger, is a sleeve for a full-sized iPad. Like the case above, it is made of hand-stitched and waxed vegetable-dyed leather, crafted in NYC. Please click on the picture to learn more about it.
