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.

Absolutely fantastic.

I had my eye on buying one of these but had to wait a couple of weeks until I had enough pennies. Saving up for something gives you more of an appreciation for the item you are buying.

I opted for the dark brown version which is so much more than a dark brown, it is such a beautiful rich redish mahogany classic colour which really pops in the english sunshine.

It is such a complete masterpiece, all handmade and stitched by hand and has such a lovely smell to it.

I cut a piece of canvas for the inside as a liner as I wanted to give it a tad bit more ridgidity It is no way a flaw, just personal preference.

It came well wrapped up in paper within a box.

If you are looking for an exclusive item don't hesitate this is the item for you.

Absolutely fantastic.

Gorgeous piece of art that�s functional. So happy to get rid of the ugly plastic drawing tube I was lugging around to meetings.

When my item was lost in the mail, Geoff and Valerie responded promptly and the replacement came quickly. You�ve got a customer for life.

Map/Plan Case Repurposing

I love the workmanship involved in making this really nice leather map/plan case. That said, I am an avid fly fisherman who has been looking for a suitable leather case for my vintage bamboo fly rods - I'm old school. This case was nearly perfect except it was too flexible to provide the necessary protection for my valuable rods. So, I began searching for a protective insert that would save the day. I found that a piece of 3" thin wall PVC was almost, but not quite perfect. I modified the pipe so it would fit in the case (the outside diameter of the pipe was about 1/16" too large) so now I have the perfect traditional leather case to protect my favorite fly rods when traveling. I think other fly fishermen would like this case as well so the folks making it might want to increase the inside diameter just ever so slightly so a piece of 3" thin wall PVC could be easily slipped inside when extra protection of the contents is needed, whether the contents are plans, maps or fly rods. Its a great, well made and very attractive case that I am proud to show off to my fishing buddies. TLW
