Prototype testing – cycling map holder

IMG_1636IMG_1637

Here’s a custom cycle map holder I just developed and prototyped. I wanted something to fit the free Sustrans paper route maps and attach securely to my handlebars. It’s constructed with a single piece of flexible acetate, leather edge binds, velcro straps and a pop fastener to close. It should be shower proof, but the weather this week didn’t allow me to test it. What a shame…

A few more tweaks and I plan make them available in my Etsy shop.

The brief was to create something in red with Art Deco style features. I looked at Art Deco book binding for some inspiration. The punching on the inside of the wallet also commemorates the birth date of the gift recipient. Think I’ll create some more wallets along similar lines, more to follow.
