Share Article

San Francisco maker, WaterField Designs, unveils its premium leather Atelier Folio for the newly-upgraded Apple 12-inch MacBook. The new svelte leather laptop sleeve, handmade by WaterField Designs' skilled artisans, is available for pre-order now and ships in early May.

The luxurious cognac leather and clean lines of the Atelier Folio with its contrasting red Ultrasuede ® lining, complement the elegant MacBook design.

San Francisco maker, WaterField Designs, introduces the elegant, refined leather Atelier Folio for the newly upgraded Apple MacBook 12-inch laptop. The simple, heirloom quality leather laptop sleeve—custom fit to MacBook 12-inch dimensions—cradles the laptop in premium leather cut by WaterField’s skilled artisans from one hide. Inside the laptop sleeve, red Ultrasuede® scratch-free microfiber caresses the MacBook's frame, protecting it from the bumps and scrapes of everyday office wear. WaterField Designs has been designing and manufacturing custom laptop sleeves, bags, and cases for digital gear in its San Francisco studio since 1998.

“Inspired by the refined, newly-upgraded 12-inch Macbook, we wanted to design for it an equally smart and trim, high-end laptop sleeve,” explains owner Gary Waterfield. “The luxurious cognac leather and clean lines of the Atelier Folio with its contrasting red Ultrasuede ® lining, complement the elegant MacBook design and render it a classic choice for professional meetings or business travel.”

The Atelier Folio is a sleek, hand-cut, leather laptop sleeve, custom-sized for the Apple 12-inch MacBook. The elegant leather sheath closes with a magnetic snap to keep the MacBook safely cradled inside the soft, red Ultrasuede® interior. Available in cognac-colored, full-grain, naturally-tanned leather and precisely stitched, the case will—over time—mold MacBook for a uniquely perfect fit. Hand-crafted by WaterField’s local team of skilled artisans, the Atelier Folio is a functional style statement worthy of any professional environment.

The Atelier MacBook Folio joins two elegant leather iPad accessories as part of the WaterField Atelier Collection. The Atelier Pencil Case for the iPad Apple Pencil and iPad Gear Case to hold iPad cords and accessories round out this elegant collection. Additional custom-fitted 12-inch MacBook laptop cases are available from WaterField Designs now—the SleeveCase, Dash Sleeve, Suede Jacket Sleeve, Outback Solo, Travel Express and Zip Brief.
