Cuir de Russie Envelope Folio
Our Cuir de Russie Envelope Folio, designed in collaberation with Simon Crompton of Permanent Style. Available in both A4 and A5 sizes, the A5 is sized to hold a substantial A5 sized notebooks plus a little more, maybe a phone, cards and a pen, or a 10.5" iPad or smaller. The A4 will hold a hardback A4 notepad + accessories, or a 13" Macbook Pro. Of course they are used for a myriad of other purposes also, from technology to business cards to stationary and are a great way of keeping items together and protected inside a larger bag. Thats not to say they should hide away though, the tactile nature of our leathers means they are designed to be carried in the hand and they are great for meetings or otherwise travelling light.
Made with our Cuir de Russie leather as an outer, we line these with wonderfully rich Fawn coloured aniline lambskin, buttery to the touch and with amazing depth of colour. The lining not only provides a soft protective surface for the contents of the folio, the lamb will develop a lovely patina over the years. The lamb provides a strong contrast with the grained, striking and characterful Cuir de Russie.
As with all our work the envelopes are entirely hand stitched. We've chosen Beige Lin Cable for the stitching of this Envelope, which is an excellent gentle, complimentary contrast with both the inner and outer leather.
The A5 envelope is approx. 267mm x 190mm when closed, the A4 350mm x 247mm
