“Passport case tailored to overseas business trips”

The trigger for the production was that there were various passport cases, and I felt that there was no passport case suitable for overseas business trips.
It started with the desire to develop a passport case that can be done as soon as possible, such as the storage capacity of the card and the ease of removing the documents, etc.

【First generation】
“Birth of special parts”

At that time, there were various countries we visited on one overseas business trip. Banknotes in the stay are put in a wallet, but the next visit is often different in currencies. I want a place where I can store banknotes in a different country, and I want a design that is easy to see from the outside and easy to take out.

Now, with the spread of credit cards, all card companies are now available worldwide, but when this product came out, there were still more restrictions. It was uneasy to carry a lot of banknotes ... was convenient.
I thought that by keeping this insertion type billing on both sides and inserting a booklet type T/C in advance, it can be removed from the case, and if you open it, you can sign immediately. Ta. By doing so, I thought that it could be used in a variety of scenes, and I thought that special parts that could still have safety and convenience, so I continued thinking.


[2nd generation]
“Storage pocket of different sizes”

In the 1990s, the communication situation from Europe was still the mainstream. So the remaining is a telephone card. "I'm sure I'll use it on the next business trip, so let's keep it in a fixed place so that I don't lose it." full. This was also a symbol of the time. So, when the passport size became smaller, I created a pocket to put a telephone card vertically, so that I could store more cards.
The large pockets on the left looked for the use of the left pocket, such as wanting a space where an immigration card or customs declaration card can stock, and also wants a pen to fill in them.


[Third generation]
“To more free usage”

Time flows, and communication means from public telephone to mobile phone. With the no need for telephone card case, we decided to make effective use of this space, and by eliminating the telephone card case, we modified it so that four -fold A4 paper can be stored neatly, and there is a voucher (hotel. The reservation confirmation) could be organized, and we have improved it to a passport case with higher storage capacity.

If you are not on a business trip, you can use it as a compact clutch bag by removing the booklet and inserting an optional belt coin case.

Please pick it up and imagine "your flight".
