In late 2011, we couldn’t find the right laptop folder, which led us to start our brand. The Islington represents our focus on functionality, simplicity and beauty. It’s a simple sleeve that lets the materials and craftsmanship speak for themselves. With a single compartment opened by a zipper around the top and side, it’s as suitable for a laptop as it is for documents.

With it’s smooth surface and natural finish, this is the typical fine Italian Vachetta leather. Our Classics collection is made exclusively from this leather, made by the family owned tannery Artigiano del Cuoio. The three siblings, Simone, Paolo and Roberto continue to produce this leather through through a method that has been passed down for four generations.
Each tooth in these zippers has been individually brushed and polished before being assembled on the chain. The result is an exceptionally smooth glide year after year, a beautiful finish, and no sharp edges scratching your hands or belongings.
