This protective leather sleeve will help keep your spectacles intact. Handcrafted in Minneapolis, the case comes in a dove grey shade. The soft leather is top grain, meaning the surface of the hide has been sanded and buffed to create a smooth, uniform surface. The hide is vegetable tanned using tree bark and other vegetal extracts with tannins, which is what turns raw hide into leather and gives the material that distinct woodsy smell. 

The owner of this leather goods company was born in Istanbul and raised in Europe. Inspired by American worker apparel and the Midwest work ethic, the eyeglass sleeves are created in the United States out of materials sourced from within the country.

Use & Care

Slip your glasses in the leather sleeve to assure their safety.

As with most leather goods, keep the cases away from water, chemicals, extreme conditions and dry weather, if possible. You may also use a soft washcloth to rub a leather conditioner like Skidmore's onto the surface of the eyeglass case as desired.

Vegetable tanned leathers age beautifully over time, developing a unique patina. 

Production & Design

The proprietor of this leather goods company was inspired by several important periods of her life: a childhood growing up in France surrounded by a mother and grandmother that sewed and embroidered; a stint traveling throughout Asia and seeing local handicrafts; and her move to Minnesota in 2006. The combination of her life experiences led her to design products that represented the American worker.

Each sleeve is handmade and hand oiled locally in small batches out of her Minnesota workshop. All components of her products are sourced in the U.S.A. The sleeves represent an industrial and utilitarian Midwest aesthetic and approach.
