Olga Case

A laptop case with a special adjustable strap-like handle and clever straps for fastening another smaller iPad or iPad mini to the case. You can carry the case on your shoulder or on your back, like a light rucksack. For the material I chose recycled leather. There are several colours and colour combinations to chose from. My aim was to design a plain, easy to carry and interesting looking laptop case. You can carry an umbrella or a newspaper under the case with you, too. It is an easily modifiable case for every day use.
