Chase the dream. Never give up. Do it in style.
Pure, detailed and simply you.
We wanted something different. Something simple. Cool. Stylish with jeans. Or crisp with a suit. Problem was, the bags we found were either way too complex, too limited to protect our technology, or not stylish.
So we decided to design our own.
Inspired from Italian fashion, built for the technology of today - we aimed to merge fashion and versatile technology protection into a leather bag that we'd actually use.

Everything was hand designed, hand picked and carefully labored over. The leathers were chosen for not only colour - but for feel. The inner material was picked because it blended with the tones of the bag - but was also closest to micro-film, that material you use to clean your tablet or laptop screen. We sorted through padding - enough to absorb the daily shocks that your technology would go through - lightweight enough to be overlooked and forgotten.
We choose water-resistant materials, compared thread strengths, and carefully weighed zipper pulls in our hands. We choose zippers that, if you closed your eyes and used them, felt smooth, and inner zippers that were designed to be scratch resistant.
We wanted the look to match the feel. The feel to match functionality. And protection to quitely exist behind the scenes of your style.
Then we looked at how you'd actually use a bag. And we stripped it down to the core functionality.
It should hold your gear. Protect your tech. And match your style. You decide the rest.
The sleek, classic and minimalistic designs of Cradle Slate were forged for the everyday the business elite, the urban creative and the Apple futureist. Everything we did was driven by attention to detail and a minimilistic style at it's purest. Every bag is 100% leather, 100% protection, 100% style.
