From Allegory, a Kickstarter-born Chicago shop dedicated to handcrafted, small-batch manufacturing, this zippered case is great for carrying all your writing utensils. It’s made of supple vegetable-tanned leather with a loop on either side that makes it easy to attach to your backpack or carry by hand. At about 8.5 by 2.75 inches, the interior is roomy enough to hold a number of pens, a highlighter, and a pack of colored pencils, plus accessories like an eraser, pencil sharpener, or pair of travel-size scissors. Use it for class, travel, or anytime you need your tools with you on the go.
Note: At checkout, you’ll have your choice of color: brown, charcoal, or saddle. You’ll also have the option to add engraving on one of the carrying loops for an additional $10. See more information below.
A year after its 2012 launch, Allegory added a suite of leather goods to its existing line of pens. To produce these leather products, Allegory works directly with a tannery in Ecuador, where eco-friendly farming practices are paramount. Vegetable tanned and waterproofed, the leather is built to age well and show character over time. Still, it’s easy to restore to like-new condition with a quick treatment of neatsfoot oil.
