Alkr operates on a simple premise – the sleeves that protect our technological bits and bobs should be built to the same exacting standards as those bits and bobs. Primarily this means laptops and iPods. There’s also a secondary premise – the pieces that protect our beloved laptops and iPods should be fun, should cheer you up, and should make travel a bit easier. Under these ideas, Alkr was founded in early 2009. This month their first wares hit shops (and exclusive trio of The Hideout, Grand, and Oi Polloi) as well as their own online portal. The official launch is November 21, so be on the lookout for a splash of color then.

Details of the laptop sleeves follow.
