Paper Mate PU Leather Pouch
Listed here is a very rare, Paper Mate branded 48 slot pen holder. A very elegant and convenient zipper pouch. We sourced these folders from now out-of-business NewellRubbermaid office luxury store, which sold the writing instruments from the brands they own, such as Rotring, PaperMate, Parker, Waterman, and others. These were most likely used by travel agents in order to showcase and sell their inventory to other companies for marketing purposes. However, these particular folders were not used or sold, as we got them nearly brand new. As we already mentioned, looking back at the history of the company, Paper Mate & Rotring are basically owned by the same company since they both go under the Newell brands which are also sometimes referred to as Sanford Brands.
The pouch is designed to perfectly protect any fine writing instrument since it’s made of high-quality PU leather (leatherette) from the outside and smooth velvety material on the inside. There is also a separation layer of the left and right side pen rows, which is meant to prevent the pens from each side colliding, thus scratching or rubbing against each other. The covers are thick and sturdy, they do not bend or flex, meant to provide the necessary protection. The front side of the pouch has a nice imprint with the Paper Mate branding name.
One of the most unique features of this folder is its individually adjustable pen slots. This makes the folder suitable for any size fountain pens, rollerball pens, ballpoint pens, pencils, and other writing instruments, including very thin refills. It can store up to 48 pens at a time. Each slot is made out of a thick elastic band, which holds the pens tightly in place but at the same time it is easy to adjust each slot, that is to lengthen or shorten the elastic for each slot. This adjustable elasticity, i.e holding force is extremely important for sensitive pens, as the user can adjust how tight each elastic will hold each pen. You can feel safe to store even the most delicate pens made from the most sensitive materials such as celluloid and be sure that the elastic won't cause any deformations on the pen's body. The pouch also features four longer elastic bands that can be hooked over the pens or crossways in order to provide extra protection. If the slack elastic is not used to make one more pass over the pens, or hook them crossways, the first slot on which the elastic hooks becomes free, hence providing one extra slot in each row, i.e. 13 slots per row, or 52 total slots. The case dimensions are 34cm x 26,5cm x 3 cm, empty. The high-quality zipper opens smoothly and there is easy access and plain view to all your writing instruments. Great case for everyday usage or traveling meant to last for generations.
