Greet clients with a statement making piece that is as stunning as it is functional. Going back to founder Geoffrey Franklin’s roots in architecture, the Blueprint Tube keeps standard sized architecture blueprints, tattoo drawings, maps, and posters safe and portable in this weatherproof, vegetable-tanned leather carrying case.

Hand-stitched in every detail, the Blueprint Tube is guaranteed to leave a lasting impression as you pull out your stunning work. With an attached shoulder strap, the Blueprint Tube stays shut in transit, whether you arrive by foot, bike, or train.

Walnut Studiolo's classy, hand-stitched, Made in America leather blueprint tube is the perfect accessory for business travelers looking to impress at client meetings and for professionals to carry their large format documents on the job site in protection and style.

Our customers have used the archival document tube for carrying everything on the job site from archaeological dig plans in Egypt, to nautical maps at sea, to work plans at oil derricks, as well as, of course, architectural blueprints.

Available in three finishes, dark brown, honey, and black, to accentuate your style.

Your tube may not look exactly as pictured here - every product is handmade.

4-5oz vegetable-tanned leather is used in the making of the tube. The leather is cut, edged, dyed, burnished, finished with a waterproofing preserving blend, stitched together, and assembled with hardware in my workshop.

Adjustable shoulder strap is permanently attached with a riveted D-ring near the base of the tube. The shoulder strap also holds the lid on, and is adjustable to carrying length.

The interior is unfinished to protect the contents.

LEATHER: Your Walnut Studiolo product uses natural, vegetable-tanned leather and will not look exactly as pictured here. Real, natural leather carries is a natural material, so every hide has unique characteristics that individually personalize each product. Just as no two fingerprints are alike, each piece of leather is distinctive in its color, grain, and markings, which may include scars, mars, or blemishes that are a natural part of the cow's life and a sign of the high quality of the leather we use.

COLORS: Honey, Dark Brown, Black

MATERIALS: Vegetable-tanned leather, nickel-plated steel hardware

DIMENSIONS: 30" long and 3 1/4" diameter

WEIGHT: The entire tube weighs 1 lb, 5 oz.

MONOGRAMMING: Yes! This item can be monogrammed with up to 3 characters. Monogramming can add up to 2 weeks to the turnaround time. Monogram font only available as shown in the picture here: in 1/2" size. Monogram is generally placed as shown in the picture, but we can do alternate locations upon request. We do not have numbers or special characters in our fontset like "&" although we can make a "*" or "+" or "."

PHOTOGRAPHY: First three photos show the tube in dark brown, then black, then honey.
