Minimalism + functionality. Leather patch offers a comfortable grip. Close fit. Short side opening lets you access the ports. Available for both the 11" and 13" MacBook Air and the 12" MacBook.



With the release of the MacBook Air in 2008, Apple created a new set of design parameters to tackle as the body and feel of the Air was unlike what came before. The body construction and closures that I had previously used completely overwhelmed the super thin, super light Air so instead of forcing an existing idea to work with the new size, I started back at zero and designed around what was at the time not only a unique body shape but a different feel. The steep front-to-back taper prompted a side-load sleeve to allow for a close fit. All closures were left off as the light weight Air could easily be handled when inside the sleeve. The only feature would be a functional one in the form of a leather hand patch that had been present on the MacBook Pro sleeve before it but a new body construction detail allowed for seams on both sides of that patch to keep the profile of the case as narrow as possible around the thin edges.



MATERIALS: 100% Wool Felt, 1/8" (3mm) thick. Full-grain, vegetable-tanned leather, hand-dyed in studio.
