Sinclair Zip Case

Mark Dwight and his team in San Francisco have been manufacturing some of the most creative and co(o)ziest homes for your pens, daily since 2007. A fountain pen enthusiast himself, Mark took the model of customization and durability he had been using to make backpacks, messengers, crossbodies and the like, and applied it to the pen case. The result is a range of cases that are tough and washable on the outside and the plushest beds for your pens on the inside. Pens are safe from one another and from the bruises and dents of daily travel, while looking stylish and fashionably matched to your pens should you choose. All Rickshaw cases are made to order within 2-3 business days in your choice of color, pattern, and size. My personal favorite? The Coozy Case. It can hold several other smaller pen sleeves, and/or you can add a pocket notebook and a small watercolor palette for an urban sketching adventure.

27. Franklin-Christoph Penvelope

While they may be best known for their pens, Franklin-Christoph sees themselves, and is, an accessories company. Their pen cases prove it. Since 2001, Franklin-Christoph has been evolving their initial designs in Raleigh, North Carolina, to arrive at pen cases that are unique but simple enough to withstand the test of time, standing outside the line of any trend. Their pen sleeves, pen cases and Penvelopes, are perfectly constructed, stately, modern, and aesthetically old world all at once. Items are presented in leather or in natural wood fiber, a Vegan material that comes in lush colors, is durable like leather, pre-stressed, has a beautiful vintage look and is waterproof. Whether you need a case for one or 80, F-C has you covered in the most elegant way.

Wood Pen Box

While they have been making small furnishings, mirrors, pen boxes, letter trays and more since 1969, the pen world started taking notice of Toyooka Craft when they quietly started venturing out of Japan to some of the international pen shows. Before long, there were lines at their tables and sell out shows. Special orders followed and now their boxes are often at the top of pen lovers’ wish lists. Made mostly from Alder and Hinoki (Japanese Cypress) woods, Toyooka’s pen boxes are carefully handcrafted to avoid any waste of wood and to bring out the individual characteristics of each tree that they are using. They are exacting in their craft, adjusting adapt to even the smallest changes in weather and humidity. The result is a lineup of cypress blue and warm caramel-colored boxes that are a piece of art, just like the pens that they house.

A few questions about the pen roll:

Do you plan to produce more of these in sold-out colors like blue or red?

Also the center pocket seems slightly narrow for a field notes notebook, and I see even in the demonstration video you have to force it in a bit. Any chance you would make that center pocket wider, and then adjust the pockets to either side so that the entire roll can optionally fold into thirds and still lay flat?
