Description

There is something about the feel of a natural texture that is calming, reassuring and warm. Technology on the other hand is hard, shiny and demanding - even if the corners are rounded and it offers the tools to make our lives simpler.

The Brown Paper Laptop Sleeve is an antidote to technology. It encases the man-made tablet with an organic and recycled material.

Nothing more needs to be said - it is what it is, and nothing less.

How do we make them? Recycled brown paper is collected from a local packaging factory. The paper is fused to a special cotton that makes it strong enough to stitch and then coated with Nano Liquid Glass to be water resistant.

Yes, it is real paper with a little science added. The best part is that it still feels like paper!

And there is more: There are two pockets – one for the device and the other for pens, papers, cables – or whatever you wish to use a second pocket for. To close, the laptop sleeve has a hidden pres-stud in the center that ensures that your laptop is kept snug and safe in it’s sleeve. There are also two hidden magnets that hold the flap corners down to keep it looking smart.

It took a while to arrive to Denmark (just over 1 month), but it was all worth the wait. It’s so beautiful and the papping is very nice.
It’s just perfect!

What a beautiful piece of work. The craftsmanship is impeccable. Even the paper bag in wich they send my laptop bag is a piece of great design. This is my second order of the same cement laptop bag, except I change the color. And here is the thing, when is new is just gorgeous but when it starts to age it transform into a unique piece. It just gets better with time.

Great design and execution! I first saw these for sale at the super hip Zeitz Mocaa in Cape Town and was so pleased to find them on Etsy! Shipped on time, exactly as expected.

Payments

Secure options
Etsy keeps your payment information secure. Etsy shops never receive your credit card information.
► SOUTH AFRICAN CUSTOMERS: Please contact me (wendren@thewrendesign.com) before placing your order. Local prices are available (i.e. in South African Rands). Payment is also easier as a direct bank transfer as conversion fees do not need to be incurred by either party.

► INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMERS: Please pay with the secure payment gateway: Paypal (www.paypal.com). I do not accept international money transfers.

Returns & exchanges

I gladly accept returns and exchanges
Contact me within: 7 days of delivery
Ship items back within: 14 days of delivery
I don't accept cancellations
But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.
The following items can't be returned or exchanged
Because of the nature of these items, unless they arrive damaged or defective, I can't accept returns for:
  • Custom or personalized orders
  • Perishable products (like food or flowers)
  • Digital downloads
  • Intimate items (for health/hygiene reasons)
  • Items on sale
Returns and exchange details
► RETURNS are handled on a case by case basis. If you are unhappy with what you ordered or if something goes terribly wrong (for example, the bag gets damaged) please email and let us know within two weeks of receiving your parcel.

REFUND TERMS & CONDITIONS:
- The value of the bag will be refunded on receiving the returned bag in the same condition it was posted.
- The returned bag needs to be received (in South Africa) within 30days of it arriving in the country of destination (your country).
- Return shipping is at your cost unless the return is the result of an error on our side (for example, the bag posted was not the bag ordered, or it was sent to the wrong address etc). We are only human and do make mistakes.


► LOST PARCELS: This rarely happens but it would be ignorant to say never. However, come hell or high water we will get your bag to you one way or another.

A parcel can only be called “lost” after 6 weeks. At this point we put in an inquiry with the postal service and give you the option of a full refund or a replacement bag at our cost.
If your order does not arrive within 5-14 working days and you do not want to wait the full 6 weeks before we can put a formal enquiry in and declare the package lost, then we can send you a replacement bag with the agreement from you that when, and if, the original bag does arrive that you will return this bag to us at your expense, or pay for two.

Local parcels sent with the South African Post Office are always insured for their full value. International parcels over 1kg are insured for their full value and parcels under 1kg are claimable from the South African Post Office for a percentage of the value of the item – but do not worry as this is for us to handle. Sadly Asian and most African countries do not offer an insurance option.

Summed up, please get in contact with us if your bag does not arrive so that we can work out a plan forward that will make a sad situation a happy one.

Additional policies

► CUSTOM ORDERS: For some styles we offer customisation options. For more information please send us an email.

If you wish to order a bag that we are out of stock on please send us an email and we will get back to you with lead times. Usually it is about 2 weeks.

♦ NOTE: If you are not 100% happy with how your custom bag order came out you are not obliged to buy it. ☺


► WASHING INSTRUCTIONS:

*Organic Coffee Sling Bags: This bag is washable but when it comes out of the wash, it might look different to how it went in. Some of the sack dye (the print) has not been fixed and runs when wet. If you have a cream lined bag it will show but on the other colours, it does not. The choice is yours. You can wash it but the print might run and I cannot be responsible for this.

You can pull the inside (the lining) out from this bag and wash that by hand separately without getting the jute wet and risking that the print run.

*Antique Linen & Leather Bags: Wash the linen bag in a pillow case in your washing machine on a quick wash with fabric softener. Do not soak. To dry you can either lay it flat and allow it to dry slowly but often this results in the linen drying stiff. To avoid this tumble dry the bag in a pillow case.


► NOTE: Please please, do not copy the Wren bag designs, patterns or text. We have spent many hours getting it just right so that we can give you the best quality and would really appreciate your support in turn.

Items are not for re-sale without exclusive license from Wren.
