Description

I love the simplicity of envelope design and thought the basic shape would work well as a laptop case. When made out of wool felt the folded edges protect the most vulnerable part of the laptops- the corners. And the design reminds me of carrying around a giant email!

I’m moving this Friday so hopefully in a week or so I’ll produce a few more for Etsy- http://www.etsy.com/shop/TactileGoods. They’ll be available for 13″, 15″, & 17″ Mac laptops (and certain Windows laptops- depending on their sizes).

Any opinions on the closure? I like it but my boyfriend’s not convinced. Let me know what you think!

    Thanks for all the comments! I thought about using velcro instead of the clasp but I’m afraid it might fray the felt. Maybe I’ll give it a try anyway.

    So simple, yet so cute! If it was me I’d rather have a zipper or velcro closure, but it probably works just fine with the metal hook.

    That is really cool. It looks exactly like my email icon.
