L’artiste pencil cases by PrintWorks

For the past four years I have been in a Van Der Spek pen holder. I switch between my undyed and my Janet Leather ones in this model.

In them I just carry two cheap pens. They have all been pretty hardy and I use them every single day.

The past week though, I have been hankering after something different. Maybe it is because it is summer and I am more free, maybe I just needed a change after four years.

I found this one locally. It is L’artiste by PrintWorks and is in faux saffiano leather, which should be pretty hardy. It cost about €15 in a local department store. You can also find them here

It fits all my pencils, rulers etc with loads of room to spare.

It comes in several designs and colours.

    1. Yes I love them! I now have two – a grey one for my pens and a teal one for my pencils. The grey one goes in my bag every day. I bought them in store though so I checked the zippers before I bought them. I noticed then that there were a couple that didn’t pull very well. One trick that often works with a sticky zipper is to rub graphite (pencil) along the teeth. I hope that works for you. If it just doesn’t work at all, then I would return it. Let me know how it goes!

      1. It kind of doesnt close properly. When it’s a bit full it opens behind the zipper if that makes sense. So it will be open in front and behind the zipper :'(

      2. So, I have an update. I coulnd’t return the pencil case, because I bought it in the netherlands and I live in Belgium, so I couldn’t physically go back to the store. But I mailed the store and they are sending me a new one via mail, I couldn’t be more happy
