Nice simple laptop cases made from felt by a company called Rare Device.

They also do some nice other bits and pieces so its worth checking out their site.

Patchwork is cool again

Patchwork is no longer exclusively a method of construction used to make leather stretch further for cheap bags. This home-made slash economical way of using smaller scraps of materials is making a big come back. Maybe reflecting the old credit crunch or maybe a greater awareness that the world does not have a bottomless pit of resources make this style make sense and look good

Pucci does it with style in their spring summer 2008 collection.

Men's brief cases - back to business

On and off the catwalk, mens traditional brief cases are making a come back. They are old and worn, or new and shiny. They are made from exotic skins or old worn leather. With a return to a more formal look, brief cases for both men and women will be very popular this winter.
