Mujjo Folio Sleeve for 13″ Macbook Air and MacBook Pro

Dutch company Mujjo is perhaps best known for its quality touchscreen gloves — a product that has often been copied but never successfully duplicated — and the company has since brought its same fantastic attention to detail in creating quality products to a whole line of other premium accessories, ranging from iPad cases to MacBook sleeves, and now the designer label has just announced its latest entry for Apple’s new generation of 13-inch MacBooks — the Folio Sleeve. Available in versions for the third-generation 13” MacBook Air and 13” MacBook Pro, the new sleeve sports a large panel of full-grain leather on the front for a striking look and contrast with the signature felt on the back, with sturdy and reliable YKK zippers that surround three sides to provide quick access to the encased MacBook. There’s also room here for other accessories, such as a notepad, earphones, or even a small hard drive, while still maintaining a stylish and minimalist design that fits in with Mujjo’s signature aesthetic. While Mujjo’s Folio Sleeve doesn’t come cheap, it’s definitely a well-made cases that provides a classy and elegant way to accent your MacBook Air or MacBook Pro.

Twelve South Journal CaddySack

Last year, Twelve South added to its venerable BookBook product family with BookBook CaddySack, providing an elegant way for users to store and carry all of their MacBook essentials — an especially handy accessory in the new era of USB-C dongles. Now, to accompany its new Journal for MacBook, Twelve South has also released Journal Caddysack, providing the same convenient storage for a MacBook power adapter and other miscellaneous cables, in a luxurious, New Zealand full-grain leather package. Inside the folio case you’ll find a collection of elastic bands, Velcro straps, and a pocket so you can neatly hold a variety of accessories and have them ready at your fingertips, rather than tangled up inside your messenger bag or backpack.

Twelve South Journal for MacBook

One of Twelve South’s biggest claims to fame was its classic BookBook lineup of cases, designed to provide the look of a vintage, weathered book, offsetting the modern glass and aluminum of iPhones, iPads, and MacBooks. The popularity of BookBook led the company to come up with Journal, a more modern leather wallet look that quickly became another runaway hit — so successful in fact that Twelve South is now expanding Journal to the MacBook, provided an elegant yet minimalist case that fits Apple’s latest MacBook Air with Retina and MacBook Pro devices like a glove, yet still fits Apple’s older MacBook Pro Retina Display models as well. Made from luxurious, New Zealand full-grain cognac leather on the exterior, a soft micro-suede lining on the inside protects your MacBook from scratches and scuffs, and there’s even a built-in document pocket so you can carry around a few important papers with you as well. Dual zippers make it easy to open and close, and reinforced corners protect the enclosed MacBook against bumps and drops, and it’s even designed so you can use your MacBook right in the case, making it a great way to quickly pack up when it’s time to go.

Twelve South BookBook CaddySack

One of the most common complaints we’ve heard from readers about Apple’s latest MacBooks is the sheer number of cables and dongles that are now required with the switch to an all-USB-C design — Apple’s laptop is slick and portable by itself, but not so much when you consider the number of cables you may have to carry around to handle everything from USB flash drives to digital projectors. Fortunately, Twelve South has got you covered with its new CaddySack, the latest entry in its BookBook product lineup. It’s a luxe leather case designed specifically to carry all of your MacBook essentials.
