In recent years consumers have been rediscovering the value of investing in high-quality products handmade by artisans whose centuries-old crafts had been overshadowed by the rapid advances in mass production technology. Our latest MC2 music case is a child of this renaissance, made by highly skilled leather smiths who spare no expense in creating products that will last a lifetime.
Every premium leather hide used to make the MC2 cases comes from reputable British sources and is sanded by hand to remove any imperfections before being tanned using state-of-the-art environmentally friendly methods. Each panel is then individually cut out, inspected, and stitched together according to the familiar classic design. The resulting bag is incredibly strong and resistant with reliable chunky seams - it looks and feels indestructible!
Inside there is enough room to fit a large pile of music (including difficult oversized orchestral parts), a laptop or tablet, and whatever other accessories an instrumentalist might need. Its comfy folded leather handle is retained by a metal bar trapped between riveted leather loops. This ingenious system makes it very quick to access the contents, guarantees complete safety when closed, and doesn’t require any zips or clasps that might break or weaken the structure of the bag as a whole.
Leather is a truly organic material and so will age with time. As it does, it will acquire scratches and marks, creases and discolouration, and a distinctive sheen. Far from being a bad thing, these ageing effects - known as the leather’s 'patina’ - are highly desirable because they are impossible to replicate artificially, and make your case stronger and more beautiful. With the right care and attention (leather needs to be moisturised from time to time, just like your skin) the MC2 bag will far outlive its owner.
