Hand colored, hand-grained black all-leather flaptop bag; 16 x 12 x 4″

We dye our hand-colored bags with colors we mix with Noodler’s Ink®. While there are various mechanical procedures by which tanneries add grain to the leather’s surface, we prefer to grain the leather of our hand-colored bags by hand.  Hand-graining the skin adds an extra dimension of color, softens it,  enhances its ‘hand’, and elicits grain patterns that are most subtly revealed by handwork. Our transluscent hues highlight, rather than mask, the characteristics of their unique substrate.  As the vegetable tanned, open-range leather oxidizes, its evolving russet tones mix with those  of our hand-dyed colors contributing complexity to the patina of your bag.

  1. this would be a REAL breakthrough if it were less than 16″– the subservience of the bag and the proportions of the body to the laptop need no longer dominate brief design since laptops are on the way out! We need a “compact” brief from Glaser! Italians supply the compact to the trade now but these lack Glaser’s robust pulchritude.

    1. Hi Tom, and REALLY, it’s a break through in various dimensions – 17 x 12 x 5″, 16 x 12 x 4″, as well as 12 x 10 x 4″. Don’t agree laptops are on the way out, but do agree we need to complete the details of new our formats for smaller around-town bags (and Insiders® organizers) for customers for whom iPads® and cell phones do the job. Robust pulchritude – our favorite kind. Thanks! Myron and Kari

  2. Myron- the hand-stained flaptop in black is stunning!! Got the paper samples and would like to chat when you get time.
