Vegetable tanned leather tabs. It’s the only kind that can be hand stamped.
.
Vegetable tanning uses organic material and natural tannins derived from the barks, leaves and branches of trees and plants.
.
It’s a slow process that takes at least 2 months versus chemically dyed leathers that can take just 1 day. Vegetable tanned is the most beautiful, durable and sustainable. It’s the only kind I use for the bags and cases.

20% Off Samples and Seconds (mechanical keyboard sleeves). I spent part of yesterday wrapping up the first batch of the sale orders for shipping. There’s still a small quantity left. These only go on sale every so often. Why? (Please read below).

Samples and Seconds. What are they?
When I make a batch of each sleeve size, I usually make them in a group of 10. Once in a while, there are ones that have minor imperfections (a slightly different thread colour used, a tiny fabric slub, wrinkles, and the like). I put these aside and put them on sale only every few months or when there’s enough of them to hold a sale.

There’s a limited quantity of mechanical keyboard sleeves on sale. These are slightly imperfect. I would say 9/10. It may be a slight variation in thread colour, A bit of wrinkle, a tiny fabric slub or something like that.
.
I don’t usually run sales since I make small production and custom work. This is a good time to get one of you think you’ll need to take your keyboard around in the near future.
.
Thanks and have a nice weekend.

Before Covid, many of my customers were travellers. Well, you know how that went for the last year or so... I am starting to work on bags again, so it looks like things are starting back up slowly.

This one is a custom Carrier Tote for a repeat customer in Canberra, Australia.

What came first, the bags or the keyboard sleeves? Some of our mech keyboard customers were congratulating us on offering bags in the shop. It was very nice of them to notice and I appreciate that. I have been selling my bags on Etsy for quite some time (before offering the sleeves) and just added them all to moderncoup.com. I’m happy that all the offerings are in one shop.

Flatpack Pouch. I’ve been working on a series of pouches and this one is the most compact. It has 7 pockets (4 outside, 3 inside) and a full zipper top. The idea is to take all your small belongings with you in 1 pouch or to transfer it from bag to bag. It should be in the online shop sometime next week.

Oh and that’s not my beer... My husband took this photo.
