Hands down, our best seller. Minimalism + functionality. Leather patch offers a comfortable grip. Close fit. Short side opening lets you access the ports. This design is also now available with the opening on the long side for the MacBook Airs, MacBook Pros and the iPads as part of our newly expanded Patched Series.

MAKER'S NOTES::

This sleeve is the best selling sleeve in the line and has been since the introduction of the MacBook Air in 2008. With the release of the Air, 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.

As an added bonus for me as the Maker, this best-selling sleeve is also my favorite to make.

In 2013, this series got a slightly thicker leather patch, and was expanded to be offered in a "long-side" opening version that would sit well horizontally inside a larger bag. It was also introduced for the iPad and MacBooks. It is available in 4 color combinations.
