I recently had a very fun “un-birthday” when I received a package of goodies from Sula Jane and Earl. Kelly at SJ&E was so kind to send me a few different things, so it felt like my birthday, even though it wasn’t! To give each product it’s proper attention, I will break up the reviews instead of putting all the SJ&E products into one long post.
Sula Jane & Earl is a family owned business that hand crafts high-quality leather goods for pens, journals, and iPhones. According to SJ&E’s website, they owners believe that “to be modern, you need to be a little old fashioned.” People after my own heart…
Here is the lovely bag it all came in with the company’s logo:
The first product out was the Leather Calling Card Sleeve. I received mine in Carnation, a light, baby pink color. Kelly read my mind because I was hoping for this color! If you are not a pink person, don’t worry, as there are many enticing colors from which to choose.
I have been keeping the sleeve in my purse with a small group of business cards in it. It not only keeps the cards together, but that little flash of pink makes me happy every time I open my purse! As with all the products I received, the leather is extremely soft and buttery feeling. As you can see, the leather is “raw” on the inside. While some leathers like this will flake off, the leather of this Calling Card Sleeve did not flake off onto my business cards. It is stitched very well and seems quite sturdy. It is debossed with the “SJ&E” logo. Normally, I prefer monogramed items instead of those with company initials or logos, but the SJ&E logo is unobtrusive and actually an enhancement to the visual appeal of the product. While it does hold enough cards for a night out, I decided to insert fewer cards than the case actually might hold to avoid stretching the leather. It’s also perfect for slipping into a pocket so that I don’t have to keep opening my purse to hand someone a card during a business event. Overall, I am really enjoying this case!
The case measures approximately 2.5″ H X 4.5″ W and can be washed/conditioned. One sleeve retails for $19 and you can save a little cash by purchasing two sleeves at $32.
