This leather drawing tube is handcrafted in Portland by Walnut Studiolo, a workshop founded in 2009 by Geoffrey Franklin. Geoffrey, who runs the studio with his wife Valerie, designed the the hand-stitched, vegetable-tanned leather tube for carrying drawings, maps, artwork, posters, or anything you can roll. The matching leather shoulder strap is permanently attached to the lid, keeping the tube closed nice and tight. It’s finished in Walnut’s secret homemade weatherproofing, making sure that it can handle the elements from Portland, Oregon to Portland, Maine.
$280.00, free standard U.S. shipping.
