This notebook sleeve is every creative's dream


The Penroll toolbelt has been four years in the making

Keeping your pens and pencils to hand isn't practical when you're out and about, so what's an artist or deisgner to do when inspiration strikes them out of the blue? Thanks to Penroll, organisation and creativity are brought together in a wrap-around toolbelt.

Perfect for on-the-go writing and drawing, Penroll is the creation of trainee architect Michael Ruthenbury. Designed to give creatives quick and easy access to the tools they need, Penroll is a unique storage device that attaches to any great notepad.

"I love travelling, sketching and drawing. Penroll was developed to solve a simple but frustrating problem for me – forgetting and misplacing my pens!" Michael explains.

Penroll is as practical as it is innovative. With nine compartments made from hard-wearing canvas, Penroll is perfectly suited to an artist's studio and the great outdoors. Get a preview of Penroll in the video and images below.
