These Maloo Laptop cases (via Cool Hunting) are not only sleek and modern looking, they fold up and out like a Japanese Kimono. The art of it is fun, but it also becomes useful because you can lay your laptop case flat and as it folds out. The sides become a nice area to use your mouse pad. Sometimes I never know where to throw my laptop bag when I'm out and about, and often times in cafes I'm not so sure I want to set my laptop directly on the tables. Made in wool felt, the laptop sleeve comes in vibrant orange or grey. Of course the really cute one is made out of vintage kimono fabric. Unfortunately, those are only available in Japan.
I also like this small matching pouch for your mouse and any cables. (I pretty much like all small bags.)
