The leather goods – which range from larger pieces such as  a document bag, to smaller items such as a wallet and cardholder – feature a special blue lining with a design comprising characters from six languages.

This design, or versions of it, is also used in objects such as special-edition Meisterstuck pens, as well as a lined notebook.

Form and function, all of which further a good cause – now, that’s a collection we can get behind.
