The Originals Collection
Beautifully minimal wool felt and leather iPad and iPhone sleeves from Dutch design company Mujjo
Made in Amsterdam, The Originals Collection from Mujjo celebrates the understated but energetic nature of signature Dutch design, which Mujjo founder Remy Nagelmaeker describes as "contemporary and simple, but elegant and often innovative in shape or material." Making beautifully refined sleeves for your smartphone, laptop and iPad in wool and leather, Mujjo charmed us with an overall aesthetic supported by impeccable hand-craftsmanship and attention to detail.
Nagelmaeker's favorite piece, the iPad Sleeve's wool felt body is both treated to repel water and resist peeling with a sustainable material that's both strong and still soft to the touch. Additionally the vegetable-tanned leather is naturally water- and wear-resistant. Made with just the two materials, the simple sleeve benefits from basic form for a functional design. The sleeve is opened like an envelope to reveal the main compartment that holds your iPad securely while the additional, smaller pocket is free to store anything from a book to cords.
Taking the minimalist mantra to its rawest form is the iPhone Sleeve. The lightweight sleeve, which also comes in white, is constructed entirely of top-grain leather that's hand-stitched and hand-dyed with environmentally friendly pigments.
The Original Collection from Mujjo is available now directly from Mujjo online with the iPhone Sleeve and iPad Sleeve selling for €35 and €50, respectively. Also keep an eye out for the limited run 15" Macbook Pro Retina Sleeve set to drop 28 August 2012.
