My laptop bag just looks sad. It’s a simple black case that I bought on clearance from Target five years ago for $11. It’s seriously time for it to retire. So, these laptop sleeves from Kushn on Etsy have my swooning.

I love the oversized envelope and African fabric of this bag. All of Kushn’s products are made from local craftspeople in South Africa. They aren’t inexpensive but I would say the cost is worth it. Obviously, they are out of my budget but if I could afford one of these I would. The 15″ envelope style above is priced at $122 with $16 in shipping costs.

This bold stripe on this bag is awesome. It’s a 13″ sleeve and runs the same price as the one above.

This navy and camel 13″ leather sleeve is by far my favorite. It’s so beautiful with those studs! I’d love to own this piece because it’d go well with any outfit and definitely be an upgrade from my neoprene black bag.

Hope you’ve all had a lovely Monday! ~ Mary

I live with Kyle, my husband, in Kansas City, Mo. We have a dog, Oats, and a cat, Logan.

I am a development professional who specializes in museums and the performing arts. I write grants, fundraise, and assist with marketing in the form of donor communications. My academic background is in history and museum science, focusing on the presentation and interpretation of Africa in American museums.

As a freelancer, I work with clients in need of websites, Wordpress upgrades, and FileMaker Pro database solutions.


Hi! I live in a small two bedroom home in Austin, Texas. I believe in vintage, re-purposing, recycling, and making my home comfortable for us and everyone that visits. After grad school, I developed a love for design and giving old furniture a new life. Hope I can take you all along on my journey to rid my house of the "college days" furniture (or at least re-purpose it)! Welcome, and I hope you stay a while!
