For those looking for a touch of luxury while carrying and protecting their devices, take a look at successful Australian company Toffee’s range of bags and cases.
We took a look at two of Toffee’s popular leather products – the Lincoln briefcase and the Slip case for the iPhone.
Toffee was born in a Sydney apartment in 2004 when Natasha Sullivan and Hassan Issa had an idea to create stylish and functional products to protect the technology that is now a part of our daily life.
It all began with a slimline leather sleeve for the Apple iBook and Powerbook.
More than 10 years later, Toffee has a wider range of products that are now attracting customers from around the world.
We got a chance to see up close the style and quality that has become a signature for Toffee and the secret behind its success.
LINCOLN BRIEFCASE – $329.95 (13-inch), $349.95 (15-inch)
The Lincoln briefcase is slim and light and, of course has that luxurious leather feel.
Available in black or brown, the bag is made of milled leather with a pebble grain.
It has a removable padded shoulder strap and a high quality metal zipper.
We could fit our 15-inch MacBook Pro easily inside a dedicated quilted and padded laptop pocket while a secondary smaller pocket was a handy spot for our 4G wi-fi hotspot, pen, pad and cables.
But there was still plenty of room inside for our MacBook Pro’s charger, our iPad, a book and headphones.
And that’s even before you get to the interior zippered pocket and the small outside pocket that was just the right size and handy location to hold my smartphone.
Being leather you’ve got to protect your investment and treat the bag with care to prevent any significant scratches or marks.
We noticed some small scratches on our black bag that show up as a light brown colour through the leather.
But it’s worth taking that care so you can carry your devices in style. It is available in black or brows
SLIP CASE – $39.95
There are a lot of iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus users who don’t want to hide the beautiful design inside a case.
But the Toffee Slip case, available in black or brown, gives users the best of both worlds.
Made of milled leather with pebble grain, the case fits snugly around the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus so it’s slim even with the phone inside it.
When you’re not using the iPhone it is kept clean and protected by the soft microfibre lining inside the Toffee case.
But when you need to use the phone or make or receive a call, just pull the phone out of the case so it can be seen in all its glory.
Then when you’re done it can be stored safely inside the Toffee Slip case again.
