Laptop bag!

When we got home Saturday, we found a notice from the mailman that he couldn't deliver a package for us -- it was a package from Lithuania: from Ruta, containing my laptop bag. So shortly after we got home tonight, the girl next door knocked on our door and handed us a package that they had taken from the mailman on our behalf. A huge carton box...!


The craftsmanship of the bag is remarkable. The linen is a tad darker than klik's bag.

The Kodama drawing is quite subtle too. The handwritten 'Kodama' adds an extra touch.

Obviously, the first thing to try is to stuff the EEEPC and all the accessories in the bag, and see if it fits. Yes, it fits -- handily.

The bag is divided into three compartments. The large one, in the back of the bag, is for the laptop itself. The front partition is divided into two -- one side for the mouse, one side for the AC-adapter. The divider is double-sided, and it has a zipper, so you can store CDs or a thin notebook inbetween.

The back-partition has a separate pocket for a cellphone, and a small pocket in the back (in linen) for other small stuff. Both close with brass-colored snaps.

The front has another zippered partition (as has the back). The flap closes with brass snaps. You can see how the corners and the shoulder strap have been reinforced with brass nails.

The shoulder strap is of adjustable length, and it fits quite comfortably.

Also, as an extra bonus gift, Ruta included an extra linen bag! It is very nicely decorated with a poppy motif:

The heart of the flower is made out of small black beads.

Needless to say, I am very pleased with the bag. It is sturdy, can hold everything I would need to take with me, and then some. I have no reservations at all with recommending Ruta for custom-made bags. Very high quality craftsmanship, great attention to detail, very decent prices.
