The fantastic thing about stationery is that, even after all those years of being into it, you always find something new: you learn about a great new product, maker, or story.
From Nomadostore, I recently learned about Sonnenleder, a leather manufacturer founded in 1986, located near the Lake of Constance (Bodensee) in Germany. Very surprising for me that I had not heard of them before, as I have grown up not far from where Sonnenleder makes all their stationery accessories, bags, wallets – and even balls.
Personally, I fell for their pen(cil) cases, having sounding names such as (Heinrich) Böll, (Wilhelm) Busch, (Günter) Grass, (Peter) Handke, (Franz) Kafka, and many more. I am not sure in how far these objects actually relate to those people on a deeper level, as e.g. Kafka was known for his multi-clause sentences – and the Kafka pen(cil) case doesn’t exactly look like a roomy double decker.
Before we hop into the review, I would like to take the opportunity to thank Nomadostore for supporting the review of this pen(cil) case. You can also buy all kinds of Sonnenleder products (incl. the Nietzsche) in their webshop (no affiliate – just a friendly pointer).
The video is, as always, preceded by some quick facts. Again, I hope the review is helpful and that you enjoy watching it!
