Desk Accessories Review: Baron Fig Mousepad

Review by Laura Cameron

About a month ago, Baron Fig contacted us and asked if we would be interested in reviewing the latest addition to their leather collection, the Mousepad ($34.00).  As I’m in the process of putting together a home office, I jumped at the chance to jazz up my desk.

Baron Fig’s leather collection is made from Italian leather which is then handcrafted using a vegetable tanning process.  This means that the leather stays supple and soft.  The Baron Fig Mousepad measures 9″ x 7.5″ (23 cm x 19 cm).  When it arrived I was surprised at how thin it is – Baron Fig advertises it as three times thinner than the standard mousepad.  I don’t have one to compare to, but it is super thin.

The Baron Fig Mousepad comes in five colors to match other items in the leather collection: Fig Wine, Charcoal, Yellow Gold, Slate Blue and Rose Quartz.  I selected Fig Wine.  Again, as with the Baron Fig bags, I feel like the color is less Fig Wine and more Mauve. However, it’s an attractive color, and my mousepad does look like the color pictured on the website.

In general, I would say that the Baron Fig Mousepad is a nice addition to any desk.  The leather is soft and supple and my mouse slides smoothly over it.  The reverse side of the leather is a soft suede texture and sits nicely on my desk without sliding.  Given the quality and craftsmanship of the leather, I would say that $34 is a reasonable price, although it’s definitely a bit pricier than the standard mousepad.
