Laptops are an invaluable tool for work and daily life, and an expensive one. And it’s therefore important to keep it safe. A sturdy laptop case is a good way to do that, just like the new Freitag laptop sleeves, made from recycled truck tarps.
Freitag laptop sleeves
One of the pioneers of upcycling accessories, Freitag has been making bags since the 1990s. Since truck tarp is a very tough material, it also makes for a great laptop sleeve material. Freitag takes advantage of that in making the sleeves from the water-repellent tarp with a padded lining and doubly secured Velcro and thread flap.
The new range of Freitag laptop sleeves has been announced just this month. Just like its bags, each Freitag sleeve for laptops is unique. This is because they’re made with the materials of different colors, age markers, and designs. The sleeves are available for laptops sized 12-15 inches, such as MacBook Pro 15″ (2018), MacBook Pro 16″ (2019), Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 (2018). Freitag has also added tablet sleeves with a pen holder to their range.

You might not carry your laptop from place to place much in these times of working from home, but it doesn’t mean that it doesn’t need protection. If you want to keep your laptop safe, whether now or in the future, a truck tarp sleeve is a good way of doing so.
Freitag also makes smartphone cases of the same material. And if you want to keep yourself busy and learn something cool, Freitag has announced this week that it’s moved its DIY bag workshop, which was previously carried out in Switzerland, online for everyone. It’s a great way to customize your own accessory (be it a bag or a laptop sleeve) that’s both fabulous and environmentally friendly.
