These cases made on heavy cotton canvas have a nostalgic feel to them. Although I’m barely old enough to feel any nostalgia, at university this term I have attended many a dull lecture on William Morris and the Luddites. At first meaning someone against machinery due to the loss of jobs and loss of true craftsmanship, it has now come to represent someone who is against technology. I really like the irony of these cases then. Three out of the five cases in the range are designed to hold a piece of technology key to the our modern times. A phone, digital camera and an iPod. Then charmingly hand silk-screened onto the canvas is a representational image of the past. This could be a great gift for fathers day. Available at Liberty Of London.
