Baum-kuchen [Essential] in passport size
is designed to bring an extra tactile and functional joy to your Traveler's Notebook
adventure! Designed and made by 1.61 in collaboration with Baum-kuchen using high-quality goat leather, we make sure that [Essential]
works seamlessly with your Passport Size Traveler's Notebook or by itself. The left panel of the [Essential]
can hold your credit cards acting as a very convenient wallet; whereas, the right panel is a sturdy zipper pouch for loose items that need a secure closure. It will keep you organized so you can focus on your journey:)
A white zipper strap with brass zipper hardware is great for a timeless look and a black zipper strap with brass zipper hardware gives a great contrast to nude leather. I hope you enjoy watching the nude goat leather age gracefully with usage and get a darker caramelized look over time.
1.61 artifacts are handmade with love and care by Diana and Wes of 1.61 Soft Goods in Japan. Diana and Wes work diligently to honor leather as organic material, making sure to minimize production waste. As a result, some of the 1.61 artifacts feature natural markings such as scars, blemishes, wrinkles, and dots. We hope you enjoy all of the characters for many years ahead as leather ages and patinas.
