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.
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, t he 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.
We purchased the blueprint tube as a gift for our home builder. He was amazed, surprised and very appreciative. Geoff and Valerie certainly make nice stuff!

Excellent quality. Beautiful design every time I’m riding I get compliments
Beautiful. Really has a lot of uses. Great seller, great experience, and super great case! Thank you :)
Full of anticipation I was opening the box in which the tube was shipped. It was well wrapped and one could immediately see that Walnut Studiolo took a lot of care not only in manufacturing the product itself but also something trivial as the shipping of it. The tube is awesome!!! I have already used it for travels to a conference. I received nice comments and it definitely stood out from the crowd. Thanks again! Stephan (customer from Germany)
