Elegant Briefcase Made of Japanese Cedar


This aesthetically pleasing piece of the fine Japanese craftsmanship by industrial designer Takumi Shimamura is a briefcase made of Japanese cedar with a hand-stitched canvas edge, a leather handle and canvas interior. Take a look inside—its makers say the case is big enough for a 17-inch PowerBook with room to spare. A delightful side effect is its pleasant cedar scent. Available from the MoMA (Museum of Modern Art) Store for $265. We thought it would cost much more than that.
