Back to School Basics

As we move into the month of August, it’s time to start thinking about back to school and everything needed to make the upcoming academic year a successful one. We’ve got a great lineup of standout essentials along with a new product we are excited to launch this season! Shop these 5 back to school essentials.

Oxford Tech Sleeve

This versatile sleeve has been in the works for a while and we are excited to announce it just in time for back to school. Made using soft, top-grain leather with a pebbled texture, the Oxford is a classy way to protect your tech gear. We call it a “Tech Sleeve” because its use is not limited to carrying a laptop. Available in 13” and 15”, the Oxford is also ideal for holding larger tablets, such as the iPad Pro. The interior is lined with premium felt and there’s a zipper closure to secure 1contents before placing the sleeve into a backpack.

Large Composition Cover

One of our most popular items, the Large Composition Cover, is a must-have for taking notes in style. Not only does this item hold a standard-sized lined notebook, it’s refillable, which is perfect for when you’re ready for a fresh start next semester. Check it out in hand-sewn, machine sewn, or machine sewn with buckle closure.

Soft Binder

Binders seem to be very synonymous with school—but this isn’t your average plastic and cardboard binder. The Soft Binder does what other binders do but looks better doing it. Made to hold standard 8.5” x 11” hole-punched sheets, this binder even gives you a choice of 4 ring sizes to hold as many or as few pages as you need. See all size options here.

High Line Zipper Pouch

Taking an art class this semester? Or are you just a connoisseur of highlighters? Either way, the High Line Zipper Pouch is a great way to securely store pens, pencils, markers, sticky notes, etc.

Dispatch Lunch Bag

Ditch the plastic bag and opt for this sturdy and sustainable Dispatch lunch bag. Waxed canvas is a durable, waterproof material, making it a great choice for an everyday item intended to be heavily used.
