Artisan & Artist Edition for Leica – the compact system bag for travelling light with a camera
With the Artisan & Artist Edition for Leica, Leica Camera AG, Wetzlar, presents a system bag that unites superior material qualities and finishing in a perfectly designed product concept. Just like Leica, the Japanese manufacturer of premium camera accessories Artisan & Artist has a passion for handcrafted excellence, attention to detail and painstakingly selected materials. The result is a compact and exceptionally high-quality bag that is ideal for short trips and city travel with only the essential camera equipment. It provides sufficient space for basic camera gear: for instance, for safe and convenient stowage of a Leica M with a lens attached, an alternative lens, batteries and SD cards.
The use of the finest leather together with hard-wearing weatherproof nylon in the manufacture of the Artisan & Artist Edition for Leica bag lends it an especially stylish look. Hand-sewn stitching and contrasting elements in red define its classically elegant design. Inside, the bag offers an ingeniously designed soft inlay that offers ideal protection and adaptability. When the inlay is removed, the camera system bag becomes a discreetly elegant shoulder bag for everyday use. The sewn-in inner pocket offers space for carrying additional film, memory cards or a spare battery.
A hand strap and a carrying strap in plaited green-brown silk are available separately as optional camera accessories to match the Artisan & Artist Edition for Leica system bag. The elaborate plaiting process makes them exceptionally strong and tear-resistant. Protective tabs for the hand-sewn leather end pieces protect the camera body and prevent scratching.
The Artisan & Artist Edition for Leica system bag will be available in Leica Stores and Boutiques from November 2014.
