Handmade leather cases for Caravela
« on: March 18, 2013, 06:37:25 PM »
Hi all!

I produce handmade genuine leather cases for e-cigarettes.


Here are the models for Caravela:

V09 "Laced sleeve"
25


V10
37


V04 "Transport case"
25


You can choose leather and a stamp:




What do you think about the cases?
The cases are for sell, but I'm also looking for the feedback to make the cases better.

Nice to hear that you like them. Thanks :)
I have seen just one case from Pedro:
http://caravelamods.pt/forum/index.php?topic=309

It's extra quality, I like it :)
But this is a carry case. It will take some time to take Caravela out of it and start vaping.

My aim is to create a case, which can be used while vaping. The leather is warm in hands (especially compared to metal), so it's nice to vape and feel leather in hand.

V09 doesn't cover the button on the buttom, so Caravela can even stand in it. I know that some people are using this case even without a hanger on the neck, just because they like the feeling of leather.

So these cases are just diffrent. But maybe you have seen some other good ideas for cases? If so, I would be glad to see the examples.

Yestdeay I got an interesting question in my thread in russian forum. It's in Russian, of course, so I think it's a good idea to repost it here translated.   *boat2*

The question is about V09 "Laced sleeve":
"Can I keep mod in the case in my pocket? Would the lacing untwine?"

First of all, the lacing is made of the same type of leather as the case itself, so its color precisely matches the color of the case. The leather strap is made of leather, so it's not slippery and can be slightly stretched. When you tighten it, it blocks itself very tightly.

Don't hesitate to ask questions  :)

All I know is any leather case I use ( I do have one) the Caravelas must sit in velour - meaning a pen felt bag or the leather would have to be lined with something in that order.

I have a handmade cigar case w/finest Italian leather - very smooth leather inside - However, without protection - said leather still rubs on the PVs and I can see the tiny damage that does to finish.  I am very anal over finish of my mods.

The Velour/velvet bags are also unlined.  I got some once that had a rough shiny material in them and tossed them

I have a handmade cigar case w/finest Italian leather - very smooth leather inside - However, without protection - said leather still rubs on the PVs and I can see the tiny damage that does to finish.  I am very anal over finish of my mods.

Ususally, there is only the backside of the leather inside the case. It should be much softer than even the finest leather. Here is the example of it on another model of the case.

I think, I can also do a new model with velour inside, if anyone will order it.  *boat2*

In my cases I use only soft leather and waxed thread. If there are any metal parts (for example, from the installed concho), they are also covered by leather inside the case (soft side towards the mod).  *doglick*

In models V04 and V10, there is only backside of leather touching the mod.
In V09 additionaly leather and thread are touching the mod.

I haven't got any complains about the cases scratching a mod. But anyway, thanks for the comment. If I know a problem (even if it's potential), I can improve my cases  *caval*

Hi Parish
Those look great. But I'm interested on the big case on the first photo. Does it have compartments so that no mod will touch each other? I really would love to have four compartments to carry four mods with a long strap so I can carry it across my shoulder.
Thanks

Hi Rajuisha!
What an eagle eye! :)

This a bag, which was designed mostly for batteries.
S13:








This one was designed on request from one truck driver (a very nice guy!), who needs to have loads of batteries with him.
So exactly this bag is quite specific, because he said, that it's fully ok that about a half of batteries are hardly accessible.
The price is 150, because the content of the bag is developed on request. We can set the price when we discuss the contents.

The answer to your question (does it have compartments so that mods don't touch each other) is yes: there can be anything you want or almost anything ;)
A long strap for wearing across the shoulder is also possible.
If you have a clear vision of how the bag should look like (inside and outside), please send me a scetch. If not, we can discuss this.  *boat2*
