Afternoons with Albert keeps your bits and pieces organised
There is nothing more infuriating than putting your perfectly coiled headphones in your pocket to simply withdraw a clumped mass of tangled wires 30 seconds later. Afternoons with Albert is a range of leather cord rolls that can keep headphones, coins and other goods organised without hassle.
As an airline pilot, Shane Thompson is well acquainted with travel. Over countless flights, Shane has encountered every minor inconvenience and annoyance when it comes to luggage packing – chiefly losing headphones, phone chargers and little (but important bits and pieces). As a kid, Shane spent many afternoons with his carpenter grandfather Albert, who taught Shane all about the creativity in invention and a passion for handy design. Combining his love of travel and design, Shane decided to put Albert’s teaching into practice, creating a range of accessories made for the urban traveller in mind as Afternoons with Albert.
With the aim of allowing people to get lost in the adventure of the present moment without worrying about trivial issues, Afternoons with Albert manufactures leather cord rolls, which are perfect for removing tiny hassles for things as simple as headphones. Carry around all kinds of cables, lip balms, cash and more in a functional, classy and easy to use roll, which can be packed and taken anywhere in the world. The goods are designed and crafted by hand, made from ethically sourced vegetable-tanned leather and weighing less than five grams.
