Blueprint Tube

Our all-leather, handcrafted Blueprint Tube keeps large format documents (like architectural blueprints, maps, artwork, and posters) safe and portable. 

Impressively hand-stitched in every detail, the Blueprint Tube is made from structural and sturdy vegetable-tanned tooling leather - the same kind used in horse saddles. 

This is the perfect briefcase for artists, photographers, graduates, architects, and businesspeople looking to store or transport their most important work. 

Our customers have proudly used our archival quality leather document tube all over the world:

  • National Geographic photographers presenting prints 
  • Egyptologists carrying archaeological dig plans 
  • Sailors storing nautical maps at sea
  • Engineers toting oil derrick site plans on the job site
  • Developers and architects presenting architectural blueprints

FEATURES: The leather is cut from Grade "A" American-tanned hides and edged, oil-dyed by hand, burnished, glossed for weatherproofing, hand-stitched, and assembled with hardware in our Oregon workshop. It stays shut with a permanently-attached, adjustable-length shoulder strap that tightens the lid down with a fast-release Conway buckle. It is unlined  - the leather is flexible but sturdy enough that additional lining is unnecessary. It is also undyed on the inside to protect archival contents and to keep the interior light and easy to see inside. 

COLORS: Honey, Dark Brown, Black

MATERIALS: Vegetable-tanned leather, nickel-plated steel hardware

DIMENSIONS: Interior dimensions 32" (81.3 cm) long x 3" (7.6 cm) diameter. Exterior dimensions 34" (86.3 cm) long x 3.25" (8.25 cm) diameter. 

WEIGHT: Empty, the tube weighs 1 lb, 5 oz. 

MONOGRAMMING: Yes! This item can be monogrammed with up to 3 characters using our 1/2" font set. Monogramming can add 2-3 days to the turnaround time. Monogram font and placement is shown in the photos. Learn more about our monogramming service.

YES ~ my product is beautiful. YES ~ the craftsmanship is impeccable. YES ~ the leather of course is amazing! But what you don't know until you start interacting with Walnut, is that these folks put heart & soul into their products. For me, this is the type of places I actually want to spend my hard earned money. I had to wait a couple of years before I could afford making my purchase but it was totally worth it. I LOVE IT!!
