Truman Handcrafted iPad and Macbook Portfolios

Posted on September 4, 2011


I covered some well designed and downright innovative Hard Graft iPad and Macbook cases not too long ago and since I’m on the hunt for some attire for a soon-to-be-mine iPad 2, I’ve expanded the search into the realm of luxuriously handcrafted leather cases.

The Truman handcrafting process involves meticulous care and keen attention to detail.

Starting with the finest leather,  each piece is cut, sewn and finished by hand with meticulous care achieving zen-like unity of subtle elegance, function and utility.

Truman Handcrafted iPad and Macbook Portfolios

Truman by Teppei Teranishi is an art form. iPad and Macbook portfolios made entirely by hand using traditional techniques and combining the finest rawhide materials which inevitably age well into the years; honestly, if technology didn’t leapfrog at breakneck speeds, these would be heirlooms.

The simple one button stud closure with strap wraps for newspapers and magazines are reminiscent of briefcases from an age of elegant Victoria. The hand cut premium tan leather from Wickett & Craig with nickel hardware and burnished edges lends an air of distinguished character only reinforcing the panache of its bearer; Cut in similar fashion for both iPad and macbook (similarly shaped laptops can apply), a bespoke service is available for a custom fit [Shop here].

In other news, if you’re one of those technology hold outs, you can’t make any mistakes with Truman handcrafted Market Tote.

Inspired by trips to the farmer's market, we wanted to make a bag that was simple in aesthetic and smart in utility.
