Leather fetish

I've been thinking about leather a lot lately – mostly because I'm now in the leather business. (In case you missed it, click here to see our handmade leather bags.) I've been thinking of making leather iPad or iPhone cases, like the Dodocase, the "Rolls Royce" of iPad cases, the BookBook iPhone case, or even these iPhone/iPad cases from Montblanc.

The Dodocase:
Moleskine disguise.

The BookBook:
It's a case AND a wallet in one.

The Montblanc Meisterstück Leather Collection:
When "regular" cases just won't do.

 For the iPhone too:

These last two cases are made from Montblanc's famous Meisterstück leather, and unlike the other two cases in this list, you can buy one from Rustan's. P10,500 for the iPhone case, P20,500 for the iPad case.

I've been positively obsessing about leather cases because once you get your hands on one of these, a regular plastic iPad/iPhone case just won't do. Stay tuned for a leather iPhone/iPad case, proudly Philippine made...

i used to love leather but for some reason my taste had shifted to pleather na lang

of course real leather is better for gadgets to offer maximum protection but i guess the stiffness of the material just doesn't appeal to me anymore.

but if ever i would be looking for real leather bag, i know where to buy it na

Vito is not part of the family biz yet, haha. That sounds so mafioso!

My hubby and I were just talking the other day about suggesting to you guys on making a camera bag made out of leather like the Leica's :) or leather cases for Ipad and Galaxy Tab.

This post got me excited :)

Em, believe it or not, that's where this leather bag biz all began. I wanted a leather case made for my camera. But the satchel went first because it was easier to make, plus mabenta pa!

New designs coming soon, and hopefully camera stuff will be a part of those new designs. :)
