Mujjo Introduces Two New Leather Sleeve Case Collections For MacBooks And iDevices

Following 12 months’ development, Netherlands-based Mujjo is releasing two new sleeve case collections for Apple products, including models for iPod, iPhone, iPad, and MacBook laptops.

The Understated Sleeves Collection – These new sleeves dont shout, look at me, but just calmly hint craftsmanship through their tastefully understated appearance and quality of materials.

The Low-Key Sleeves Collection is restrained in style and quality, with an observably masculine character that embodies well-considered materials — beautiful vegetable-tanned matte black leather combined with dark grey felt, in uniform dark tones, with few areas of contrast intensifying the understated design.

The Understated Sleeves Collection Takes Perfectionism to a New Level

The name of Mujjo’s Understated collection is derived from the adjective understated (synonym: understated elegance): exhibiting restrained good taste in style, quality or design, takes the company’s sleeves to a new level, reworking every part of the design process from the ground up.

Mujjo says the designers started with the core, the materials, and obsessively tried to develop those to the next level. They managed to improve the signature materials; vegetable-tanned leather, felt, and gunmetal alloy hardware. True to their vision, these sleeves are contemporary and remarkably simple. They dont shout, look at me, but rather calmly hint of craftsmanship through their understated appearance and quality of materials.

Reworked Signature Leather

Mujjo spent months perfecting their leather. They managed to find ways to make it more durable, denser, and soft to touch. The updated leather feels smooth, with rich colors, and more intense tones. The designers also focused on its character. The leather wears in with use and acquires rich patina and2 polish over time, as it becomes part of your daily life. The full-grain, vegetable-tanned leather used is manufactured with care, waxed to extend durability, and carefully treated with aniline oil to enrich color tones. Due to the nature of full vegetable tanned leathers, it features a very dense and compact structure; a final buff is applied to the already short fibers to ensure a smooth underside with a sophisticated soft touch. The short fibers and dense structure eliminate the need for cosmetic additions like lining and painted edges. The quality of the leather enables Mujjo to leave it cosmetically untouched while emphasizing the character of the material and staying true to the concept of the collection; nude leather and raw edges emphasize the understated and sleek appearance.

New Designs

Mujjo’s Slim Fit sleeves are specifically designed for iPhone 5s, iPad mini and iPad Air. Cleverly cut out of one single piece of full-grain vegetable-tanned leather, these sleeves create a slim and secure space for your device with an integrated pocket in just one stitch. Marked by a slant line, a integrated pocket enables you to conveniently store a few essentials. Its incredibly simple, functional, and remarkably elegant.

Another new design is the leather iPhone 5s wallet case, designed to eliminate bulky pockets and fat wallets, lined with suede made from the underside of our vegetable-tanned leather. They’ve designed the iPhone 5s wallet case to be as slim as possible, just the right size to fit your iPhone plus some cards. This sleek package with a leather card holding slot on the back of the case allows you to conveniently store a few bank or business cards and some cash for quick access. Clever openings expose the volume rockers, headphone-jack, and lighting connector; enabling you to listening to your favorite music and charge your iPhone while your device is protected.

The 13-inch Macbook folio, designed to fit all 13-inch Macbooks, has a powerful and seductively understated presence due in considerable part to the noticeably large surface of tan-colored high quality vegetable-tanned leather on the front of the sleeve. This creates a deliberate and powerful contrast with the large surface of light grey felt on the back, separated by a high quality custom-built gunmetal alloy zipper alongside the sleeve’s edge, following a subtle curve — a calm hint of craftsmanship. The integrated double storage compartments allow you to store documents, earplugs, pencils, and other essentials. Mujjo have integrated a leather brand label with slots inside the sleeve, made from the underside of the vegetable-tanned leather, to store cards as well as a SD card, as an additional feature.

Reintroducing Popular Designs

Reintroducing one of Mujjo’s most popular designs, the Envelope sleeve is designed to fit all generations of iPad and iPad mini, even with a Smart Cover attached. Crafted out of the improved signature materials felt and vegetable-tanned leather and constructed with custom-built rivets, made out of high quality gunmetal alloy for durability and to match the sleeves character.

Last but not least, the Macbook sleeve, available in 13 and 15 inch, has returned in its best shape ever. The leather flap, with one snap button on the right, provides a simple closure and keeps your device secure. The rivets are lined to keep your Macbook from touching anything but soft, thick felt. The integrated storage compartment allows you to store documents, earplugs, and other essentials. As an additional feature, theyve integrated a bank and SD card slot.

The Mujjo Low-Key Sleeves Collection
The Low-Key sleeves collection’s name is derived from the adjective “lowkey” (synonyms: understated, restrained). Every part of the design process has been reworked from the ground up. Contrasting textures create tension by highlighting the slant and sleek lines while uniform dark tones amplify harmony.
