Review by Laura Cameron
A few months ago I was browsing JetPens and I came across the Sun-Star Delde Slide Pen Pouches ($16.50-18.50) and decided I needed to try one.
I opted for the pouch in Happy Fleur and Mint which is listed as a limited edition. I was particularly intrigued by the sliding part of the pouch.
The pouch itself is approximately 7.5″ tall and 4.5″ wide at the widest part. The base is about 2.5″ deep. The upper part of the case (here, the floral motif) is made of PVC, and the lower part of the case and trim (tabs, zipper pull) are made of synthetic leather. Both are listed as sturdy and resistant to dirt.
Inside the case has a mint green polyester lining with a few small pockets. The larger portion of the inside is just open for storing pens, pencils, rulers, scissors and anything else you’d like to carry on the go.
The creative part of the case (for me) are the two leather tabs on either side of the case. Pull on the tabs and the entire top portion slides down, allowing the convertible pen pouch also functions as a pen stand on a desk. As you can see I’ve loaded it up with my brush pens for handlettering and my Sakura Gelly Rolls for some color.
As we’ve mostly been isolating, I haven’t taken this pouch out and about much yet, but I think it would be perfect for some urban sketching, or just keeping in my purse in case the mood strikes when I’m not at home among my tools. It’s portable, lightweight and seems easy enough to clean in case of mishaps!
