FORMAT is a line of handmade leather Apple iPad folios and desk accessories designed by an architect and interior designer.
Our mission is to create functional, timeless, artful products for the modern day creative.
Seth Ellsworth of LHOOQ DESIGN and Jacqueline Palmer of A Design Lifestyle, create the interior designer and architect team behind FORMAT. We are young entrepreneurs, questioning the traditional business of design and rethinking the process for the future. As young designers, we are reveling in this time of new tech and how it can improve our creative process. We both live in the Bay Area of California and share a mutual passion for designs with character, clean lines, and precise details.
Our iPad leather folios are designed to house both digital and analog media, or whatever you see fitting. The folio is made of one continuous piece of leather for a seamless clean look. We source only the highest quality premium vegetable tanned leathers, void of heavy chemicals. This process produces a stronger and more durable leather that has a handsome look and will develop a unique rich patina with each use. We have teamed with a local modern-day, urban shepherdess, BCB Maker to manufacture with care each item as a work of timeless craftsmanship. Each piece is individually numbered, and a limited edition. We are offering a Special Edition of FORMAT in white and brown hair-on goat hide, with natural leather interior panels. These goat hides are ethically sourced from Northern California. In an effort to use entire cow hides, and limit scraps and waste, we have designed a few smaller, simpler items for your desk space.
