5 Practical Uses For A Zatchels Handmade Leather Folio Case

Leather folio cases are one of the most practical and versatile accessories out there, which is why we’re delighted to have added them to the Zatchels collection.

Handmade in England, using fine leather from Scotland, our leather folio cases are a must-have for transporting the essentials with ease and style. But don’t just take our word for it! Why use a folio case? Well, these are are just a few of the main uses that you can rely on a leather folio case for:

Transporting electronics safely

All of our recently introduced leather folio cases have been made with personal electronic devices and their related accessories in mind. That’s why our small folio case can comfortably carry 7” and 9” tablets and kindles, whilst our large folio case can carry tablets up to 13” in size. This includes the iPad Air and iPad Pro.

A secure zip fastening will ensure your electrical goods are kept secure, whilst the detachable hand-strap allows you to carry the leather folio case close to your person at all times. This provides a stylish and practical way to transport your most used electronics, whether you're heading into the office or jetting off on your travels…


A leather folio case also makes the perfect travel companion. As we’ve mentioned, you can use it to transport your electronics securely with you. This is great for enabling you to access your tablet etc. easily when you're in the airport and on public transport. It’s also the perfect size for storing essential travel documents, including passport and boarding passes.

When you’ve reached your destination, a leather folio case also makes a practical bag to take out for a day of sightseeing. Slim and compact, you’ll have just enough room to take the essentials like phone, and wallet, without the need to lug around a heavy bag. The detachable hand-strap also allows you to keep your belongings safe from pickpockets when exploring new cities.

Compact work bag

With plenty of room to carry the workday essentials like notebook, tablet, purse, phone and so on, a leather folio case also makes a practical work bag. Keep items organised and compact, rather than lugging around a heavy bag all day, where it’s difficult to retrieve items quickly when you need them.

It’s also helpful to have a sleek work bag like this for the days when you’re heading out for drinks or dinner straight after work. The Zatchels leather folio case in black, chestnut or navy is particularly well suited to complementing a smart work look.

Evening clutch bag

One of our favourite things about leather folio cases is their versatility. During the daytime, they can function as a practical travel companion or work bag (you name it), whilst in the evening they can double up as a stylish leather clutch bag. Handmade using expert British craftsmanship, Zatchels leather folio cases feature smart hand stitched detailing, that complements the high quality leather finish.

As well as the navy blue, black and chestnut that we’ve mentioned, the leather folio case is also available in red and marsala red. That means there’s a colour to suit every individual style and complement your favourite evening looks. You can simply detach the hand strap to create an even sleeker looking accessory for the evening.

Organising belongings in larger bags

Another benefit of leather folio cases being so compact is that you can store them inside of another bag. Our folio cases will all fit neatly inside our classic handmade leather satchel, handmade leather city backpack, and handmade leather shoppers/ tote bags. This is useful for helping you keep your bag organised, as you can keep important items separate, and easily retrievable.

You could also use it as a sleek cosmetic bag to store inside your favorite handbag. In this sense, a leather folio case can act as another internal compartment for your favourite bags.
