Our client decided to pamper his Fiancee with a bespoke A5-size notebook case as a birthday gift. The plan to do this started months before the birthday. Talk about being thoughtful!

His requirement was clear - his better half needed a functional yet elegant notebook case for her frequent meetings. The color of choice was black in hatch grained leather - a leather that is manicure-friendly and easy to maintain. But don't be fooled by her obvious choice of an ultra-conservative color. She went for a luxurious and beautiful suede lining in Ferrari Red. Yes. Ferrari. The million-dollar color!

Design-wise, we went for a clean and professional look. On the left side, we went for a simple 3-card slot with cut-out arch in varying size. They are not only elegant but functional as the cut-out arch makes storing or retrieving cards a breeze. For the larger pocket underneath, we went for a a little curvature for a tad of femininity. On the right-hand side, we have leather bound edge on the red suede lining to ensure greater durability.

Thanks to the work of our craftsmen, the case opens really flat to facilitate comfort while writing. Finally, the case open/close with a slightly over-sized leather pull as an added detail.

We are happy to finally deliver something that our client is happy with it and we hope the notebook case will provide years of faithful service. Thanks again for entrusting the project to us and patience. You know who you are! :)
