This useful felt bag has crisp shaping with contrast edging and an interesting layered edge seam feature.
The internal pocket is an ideal size to keep your I pad/notebook or similar sized device safe and secure. The front pocket and large main compartment will hold all your other essential items.
The flap secures with 2 magnetic closures or buttons and the strap will fit neatly over your shoulder.
