As of late, I’ve developed a newfound appreciation for handmade goods; especially when considering the time and effort spent carefully and lovingly creating something from scratch – something I doubt I have the patience, or design skills to achieve myself. You may recall a couple months back, when I shared the lookbook of friend and designer Elisabeth Kwan, and her stunning array of handcrafted leather goods.

During one of our many back and forths, I’d asked Elisabeth about options for iPad cases, after falling head over heels for her bright blue metallic iPad mini case, which so effortlessly doubled as a clutch. I’d spent months trying to hunt down a leather iPad case which was minimal in design, but was yet to find something that truly appealed, so you can imagine my euphoria when she offered to make me an iPad case with a pale blue metallic not too unlike her own.

I was pretty excited to receive it early last week, wrapped in brown paper and sealed with wax. The contents speaks for itself, finding the beauty in the raw minimalist design, and wool felt lining; the natural creases and subtle changes in the leather a few of the unique characteristics of a piece which is one of a kind. Should you be after your own phone, iPad or Macbook leather case from Elisabeth’s eponymous label, you can pick one up from her recently revamped website, http://www.elisabethkwan.com. The only real question is which colour to get.

    It’s absolutely beautiful! What a stunning colour & love the little tie up detailing. The packaging has got me swooning too, nothing better than a beautifully wrapped parcel.

    I think whatever colour you choose it’ll still look efforlessly chic! My mum has a kindle and I wonder if there are cases similar to this one for Kindles or smaller tablets. Also, I nominated you for a Liebster award. The questions are super fun, and I’d love to see how you resond to them!

    Haha, yea, some things get less love than others but I don’t buy all that much…half of what I get usually has to be returned because of fit/etc. Although all the stuff I’ve gotten recently I’ve kept. I don’t do big wardrobe culls but I do get rid of pieces now and then. 🙂

    really love the colour here and I’m glad you discovered the many advantages of handmade goods. the good thing is you get in close contact with the maker and the person behind the label or the item you picked.

    thanks for commenting the other day : like your blog here and instagram too. You have another follower from today.

    take care,
