The Traveler for iPhone 5/5S and 5C

Our Dad, a veteran of World War II, carried a hand-stitched, leather coin pouch that he as likely picked up at his local men’s store as from a street vendor in Afghanistan, one of the many countries he lived in during his life. He used this pouch to carry a cache of coins that could be distributed to delight a six-year-old son who had spotted a bubblegum dispenser or to purchase a cup of coffee for a friend in need of a listening ear and a shoulder of support. That coin pouch exemplified a truism about Dad Holmes; he always had a little something set aside to give. Over several decades that pouch was opened thousands of times, and yet when he passed, every stitch had remained in place, the leather, though worn, held true. 

When we embarked on the design process to bring a collection of leather wallets and a slim lined iPhone 5/5s case, we turned to Dad’s coin pouch for inspiration.  The three Pad & Quill litmus tests we focused on were: superior craftsmanship, beauty in design and evoking history and adventure.  These were all encapsulated in that one little coin pouch.

This slim-line iPhone 5/5S and 5C case is crafted by hand, from premium, full-grain leather.  It’s a curious blend of avant-garde and old fangled innovation, with French Piping, turned edges, parachute stitching and a clever slide pocket to hold your ID.  No two cases are same due to natural leather and hand assembly. The Traveler slides with ease into your pocket, it’s designed to carry anywhere and to take everywhere.

Review by Wolf
I'm impressed. First, I bought the aria for the iPad mini. Beautiful, well crafted, and completely protects my ipad. The, I bought the little black book for the iPhone. Well crafted, protective, and simply elegant. Many compliments on both. When the black book started coming apart after daily, constant use, I decided to try something else. The Traveler has blown me away. Beautiful, well crafted, and artisan are some of the words I would use. My iPhone feels and look amazing in The Traveler. Well done Pad & Quill, well done.

My phone was left on top of a car and it fell of the roof on the highway going 80mph. The case protected it enough that I was able to use Find My iPhone to recover my phone! The screen was shattered, but still useable! I had seven months of pictures of my four year old son that I had not backed up and I was able to recover them! Thank you P&Q for making such a great case! (Posted on 7/24/14)

I change cases on my iPhone almost weekly. I don't know why...I seem to just get sick of one after a while. Once I tried a case with credit card storage, I couldn't go back. It eliminated my need for a wallet. I love my P&Q Little Pocket Book but I was getting tired of opening the cover every time. The Traveler case is absolutely fantastic. I love the look, love the feel, and LOOOOVE the rear sliding card pull tab...I do it for fun when I'm bored. I can't think of a better case, honestly. The only thing that'll make me change cases again is when I get an iPhone 6. (Posted on 6/7/14)

Not only a tribute to forgotten crafts but a memory of better times past. It ticks all the right boxes to carry a well crafted piece of engineering in. (Posted on 3/28/14)
