Spartan Carton 6-Pack

  • Walk into your favorite bottle market or brewery with a gorgeous lifetime leather 6 pack, nicknamed "The Spartan Carton". 

    Featured in Real Simple Magazine, and in Wired and in the Beer West Magazine 2012 Gift Guide, selected by Core77 as of 77 Must-Haves for Hard Times for 2011, and chosen by Chilango Magazine as one of 5 Objetos de Deseo.

    This stripped-down, minimalist beer box was originally designed to complement the six-pack bicycle frame cinch: 

    Solid and sturdy, and designed to stand up to the elements, whether in the rain or being jammed into an ice-filled cooler.

    Made with quality materials chosen for their environmental credentials: equestrian-grade bridle leather and plyboo (a bamboo product, lighter-colored) and masonite (dark-colored) wood centerboards 

    Perfect for the environmentally conscientious who want a reusable container for their mixed 6-packs or homebrew

    Transports beer in a classic, and classy style. 

    I designed the leather rings riveted into a "basket" around the centerboard handle, spaced wide enough to reveal the bottle labels, and creating enough space to reduce weight

  • COLORS: Honey, Dark Brown, Black

    STYLES: Masonite, Plyboo

    MATERIALS: Bridle leather, masonite or plyboo, nickel-plated steel hardware

    DIMENSIONS: 9" x 5.5" x 8.5". The rings are designed to hold (6) 12oz bottles. 

    WEIGHTEmpty, the carton weighs 10 oz. 

    MONOGRAMMING: Yes! This item can be monogrammed with up to 4 characters. Please note that the monogram service can add up to 2 weeks to the turnaround time. Monogram font only available as shown below, in 1/2" size. Font is shown in the pictures of the various items above. Please note, we do not have numbers or special characters in our fontset like "&" although we can make a "*" or "+" or "." Please specify your monogram in the "Special Instructions" box during checkout.

    "Two opposable thumbs way up!
       For Christmas I just received the 6 pack leather carrying case, and I love the design! Great craftsmanship, beautiful leatherworking, and I love the bamboo handle. Aesthitically, nothing could look better with my bamboo frame bicycle. I have been using the 6 pack bicycle frame cinch since August, and with this new 6 pack carrying case my liquor store commute is complete. I no longer have any reason to fret about ripping through that paperboard carrying case.
       Thank you for your excellent craftsmanship!"
    -ALEKS R.
    "This is such a beautiful piece. What was meant to save packaging on my trips to pick up beer turned out also to be incredibly cool."
    -RUTH M.
    "It looks even better in person than what I hoped for."

    We carry a small stock of most of our items and most color combinations, and can get most items into the mail within 1-3 business days. However, we still do make some of our items to order. Please note, hand-stitched items and monogrammed items generally take longer. 

    If you have a particular need to get this on a certain time frame, please email me at If I can't make your time frame, I will apologize, and cancel your order and refund your payment, if you'd like us to.


    We offer shipping options using the US Postal Service and FedEx. If USPS does not recognize your address for whatever reason, we will write to request an alternate address to prevent the item from being shipped and returned. If you would like a different shipping option, or have a particular delivery deadline, please call at 503-447-6889 or email us at so we can talk about the options and costs. 


    We offer shipping options using DHL International Express and International First Class Post. Using DHL will guarantee your delivery in 2-3 days with tracking information. Using the Post will save you money on shipping, but this service has no tracking information once it leaves the USA, and it can take anywhere from 1-7 weeks. Once it leaves the USA, it changes control to your country's postal service. There are often hang-ups in customs, usually about VAT and import tax collection, that can delay the package once it leaves the USA. In my experience, it has taken anywhere from 5 days to 3 months to arrive.  

    If you are worried about the timeframe of your package, please email us! We may recommend upgrading shipping or canceling the order if we cannot get it to you in time. Once the package has left the USA, we recommend you take the tracking number into your local post office to get tracking updates. If they don't have any information about it, and it's been over 6 weeks, then we'll call it a lost package and file an insurance claim to replace it.  

    Please note that we do not collect international import taxes or VAT taxes on your behalf - when your package arrives, your country may charge you additional taxes on the order. We cannot reimburse you for your country's import taxes. If you are concerned about the cost of these taxes, please check with your local country's customs office to find out how much they are - they could easily be as much as 20-30% of the purchase price. If this changes your mind on the order, please let us know and we'd be happy to cancel it for you and refund your money in full. 

    To avoid this headache and get your item faster and without import taxes, take a look at our Retailers page to see if there is a Retailer near you:


    We take returns of undamaged items for any reason. Your satisfaction is guaranteed. If you're not satisfied with your purchase, let me know why, and I'll either work with you to find a satisfactory resolution, or you may return it and I'll provide a refund. I'm sorry, but we cannot offer refunds or exchanges on custom-designed or monogrammed products. So far, an exceptionally small number of items have come back, and I work hard to keep it that way.
