Roterfaden Taschenbegleiter ST_17


The ST_17 Taschenbegleiter is the result of a collaboration between Roterfaden and German outdoors equipment manufacturer Vaude.

Grey vegetable-tanned and dyed leather, combined with recycled Vaude tent canvas for a really cool look. The leather feels very suede-like and is particularly supple and lightweight. This leather is ery strong, approx. 2 mm thick, slightly roughened (nubuck) leather. Roterfaden's full grain cattle leather comes from German tanneries where it is vegetable-tanned and dyed. The interior is lined in soft suede that has a very luxurious feel. 

Incredibly well made (in Germany) and very hard-wearing, we have seen 10-year old Taschenbegleiters, still going strong and looking fantastic. Roterfaden will repair them and offers a replacement service for worn out parts, such as elastics on geriatric Taschenbegleiters.

The clips are the heart of the system:

1 — Lift upper and lower clips.
2 — Insert booklet or loose papers.
3 — Close clips. Done.

Robust: stainless steel made in Germany
Flexibility: can hold ROTERFADEN booklets as well as sketches, brochures, magazines, passports and exercise books to name just a few alternatives.
No need to punch holes in them.
The clips are easy to open (lift) and close (lower) using just your fingertips.
Compatibility:  TASCHENBEGLEITER is compatible with DIN A6, A5 and A4 formats.
Use clips as bookmarks: just insert them between the right pages.
Space-saving: The clips »disappear« between the pages. This makes much better use of available space compared to conventional ring bound organisers.
