This zip pen case is crafted from vegetable-tanned cow shoulder leather that will last a lifetime and become more lustrous use. It contains two pockets to carefully store your more precious pens side-by-side and prevent them from bumping into each other in transit. With use, the leather will soften and darken, transforming into your own unique belonging that protects your favorite writing instruments.

Because each case is individually crafted from organic leather, no two cases are the same. There will be individual differences in the color, thickness, and texture of the leather.

About The Superior Labor: Founded by former auto mechanic and leather artisan Makoto Kawai, this lifestyle brand crafts a variety of high-quality everyday tools that promote slow and intentional living. Kawai considers The Superior Labor as a natural extension of his experience working with cars, crafting leather goods, traveling, and curating vintage wares. All of The Superior Labor’s design and manufacturing takes place in a former elementary school campus in the rural and mountainous area of Kaga-gun, Okayama Prefecture, where Kawai lives and works. Called “nap village,” it welcomes visitors to come and experience The Superior Labor’s living and crafting philosophy while exploring the wonderful nature of Mount Hongu.
