Nick - looks vey good, but how does the weight of the leather impact?

Have you given any thought to computer cases as this seems to be a big big market and most of it is just crap, with a few honourable exceptions - like http://www.acmemade.com/bags.html

It's hard to find somethink I like!

Paiul Smith's is a joke imho http://www.paulsmith.co.uk/shop/luggage/luggage-laptop-bag-a2xa-lugg-58624-d/

Hope all well

BTW - just because I want a new computer case doesn't mean I realise that you have enough on yr plate getting the guitar case to market!

Dear Zorro

Thanks - glad you like it.

Leather does add to the overall weight - but the Calder case will still weigh less and be stronger than glass fibre cases.

We use leather because it adds to the longevity of the case. Carbon fibre scratches easily and after a few years stops looking good. Leather ages gracefully and looks great after 20 years of wear.

We are developing a design for a briefcase/laptop case which we will launch this year.
