The Artist Pencil Case is a collaboration between Sealand and proto~ that forms part of the proto~ Utility collection. This pencil case reflects the Utility collection’s main ethos of reduce, reuse and recycle, and taking care to produce products that are environmentally conscious and sustainable.
The outer layer of the Artist Pencil Case is made from recycled canvas, while the inside and rolling slot is lined with billboard fabric. The case is in the shape of a pouch, a portable and easily-accessible storage container for its owner. The rolling slot inside the pouch expands its uses and allows space for pencils, brushes etc. Each case is handmade and comes with a lifetime warranty. In addition to this, each product has a unique stamp with the name of its maker sewn inside, allowing the hands that made it to proudly leave their mark and move with the product wherever it goes.
Founded in the heart of Cape Town, Sealand produce all of their products from recycled materials and are determined to create inspired designs that promote sustainable green living. They have described themselves as a company “born with a conviction of keeping the environment front and centre alongside inspired functional designs and longevity”.
