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.
