As we reported here last week, one of our favorite road trip/party/bedroom accoutrements—the Polaroid SX-70—is getting polished up and put in a useful, good-looking kit, thanks to a collaboration between outerwear mavens Holden and analog saviors, The Impossible Project. Now we’ve got some details on the camera case, which is itself a little collaboration between Holden and Tanner Goods—Portland fabricators of heritage leather.
Made from domestically sourced, vegetable-tanned English bridle leather, the hand-stitched camera case should easily outlast anything you put inside it. Of course, it’s meant to hold the SX-70, and, to that end, features a special sleeve pocket for film. Close it all up with a leather flap fitted with a brass knob closure, and you should be very happy indeed.
“[This] is, in essence, everything we love about a collaboration,” Co-Founder and Creative Director of Tanner Goods, Sam Huff, says of the project. “Aside from all of us being fans of the Polaroid medium, the camera itself is one of those iconic designs that is one of our all-time favorites … While Holden and Tanner Goods create products for different markets, we both share a few important ideals: durability, utility and craftsmanship.”
