Mujjo are back for 2014 with two impressive new collections. Titled Understated and Low-Key respectively, the Low-Key Collection features dark tones and black leather, while the Understated Collection has an earthy vibe with it’s lusciously lighter tanned leather. Both collections essentially contain the same products with the exception of a premium 13″ Laptop Folio which is exclusive to the Understated Collection for now.
This latest release see’s the Dutch label build on the success they had with their previous Originals collection which consisted of a limited range of white and tan leather and felt sleeves for Apple devices.
So what’s new? Well, on the surface it doesn’t appear to be a whole lot, but delve deeper and you will discover quite a lot has been added. Understated and Low-Key see the introduction of several new products as well as a re-working of the original wool felt and leather sleeves that brought Mujjo to our attention last year.
The white leather used throughout the Originals collection has been scrapped and replaced by a much sleeker black leather in their Low-Key collection. The wool felt that has been selected is a classy deep grey as opposed to the lighter grey used in the previous collection. But these are not the only things that have been reworked on the original sleeves, they now feature a very handy internal slot for a credit card and another for a SD memory card, the latter of which is something we feel will come in very handy keeping loose SD cards with precious data organised. While Mujjo make a sleeve for each current sized Apple device, the iPad and iPad Mini sizes utilise an envelope style closure, while the larger 13″ and 15″ sleeves feature a simple snap button closure. For the iPhone 5, the simple yet extremely popular leather slip sleeve we saw in the Originals collection has returned in a similar tan colour and a new black leather replaces the previous all white version (which not only looks better, but is much more practical in our opinion). Now called the iPhone Slim Fit Wallet, the phone sleeve now features an additional handy slot to stash a credit card or two.
Along with the exciting improvements we’ve seen to Mujjo’s previously released sleeve collection, this release see’s a couple of completely new items, all still designed to protect and serve your Apple devices in a premium manner.
First up we see the iPhone Leather Wallet Case which is a leather coated polycarbonate shell that snaps straight on to the back of your iPhone 5/5s. Like the Slim Fit Wallet (try not to let the names confuse you…) the new Mujjo iPhone Leather Wallet Case features a slot on the rear for a couple of credit cards. If you don’t like to carry a lot in your pockets, don’t like bulky pockets or fat wallets because they are uncomfortable, this new product is built just for you. The case is designed to carry your iPhone and most important cards in one sleek package. Mujjo say they developed their new iPhone cases like this because most of the time, you just need to carry around a few of your most important cards, some cash, and your iPhone.
Next up, Mujjo introduce their new Slim Fit Sleeves for the iPad and iPad Mini. Made out of one single piece of leather, these sleeves combines functionality and elegance in just one stitch. Super slim by design, the Slim Fit sleeve is handcrafted to fit your iPad or iPad Mini plus a few essentials in a front slip pocket. We can see this additional pocket making an occasional handy home for some earphones or an airline boarding pass.
Last but not least (and at the time of writing in late March 2014 still yet to hit shelves) we see Mujjo release their first folio type product. At this stage the Laptop Folio has only been announced in tan leather and a 13″ size (to fit the Apple Pro and Air). As we haven’t physically had our hands on one just yet we can’t say too much, however judging from what we’ve seen so far from the brand we’re in for a treat. For the Folio, Mujjo have added custom YKK zips which to a full face of premium leather backed by felt which according to Mujjo, the high quality gunmetal YKK zipper creates an L-shaped opening along the horizontal and vertical side of the sleeve. This enables you to conveniently take your Macbook out and put it back in with ease.
The sophistically integrated double storage compartments of the Folio will allow you to store documents, earphones, pencils, and other essentials too. Like the other sleeves they’ve integrated a leather brand label with slots inside the sleeve, made from the underside of the vegetable-tanned leather to store bank and ID cards as well as a SD card. By design, the zipper closure enabled them to make a sleeve that fits and protects the 13” Macbook Air, the 13” Macbook Pro, and the 13” Macbook Pro Retina. We can’t wait to get our hands on this sleeve and expect our first delivery in early April 2014.
