Computer A-Go-Go

Retro style meets modern design in this handy and colorful laptop sling. Made from extra thick, protective neoprene, the unique hourglass shape holds your laptop securely in place, while stretching to accommodate a variety of laptop sizes (14"-15" monitors). Slip the adjustable strap over your shoulder and you're good to go!

Each laptop sling sports one of Alexander Girard's candy-bright, retro textile designs, with an exclusive Girard "love" charm. Designed in New York. Made in China.

  • the maker

Alexander Girard

Alexander Girard (1907-1993) is one of the greatest colorists, pattern makers, environmental and exhibition designers of the 20th century. Hired by Herman Miller in 1952, Girard led the company's textile division where he brought color and life to the modern furniture creations of George Nelson and Charles and Ray Eames.

Using folk art as his inspiration, Girard created whimsical and sophisticated designs that have urged us toward a more playful and expressive way of life. His vision extended beyond Herman Miller to include many independent projects such as the La Fonda del Sol Restaurant in New York's Time Life Building, and the complete redesign of Braniff Airlines in 1965.

Alexander Girard's designs followed the belief that individuals should be able to express themselves through their environments. People should be given choices, and fabrics should be selected on an emotional basis.

    Comfortable, light-weight, easy to access MacBook.
    Could use an interior zip pouch, or other pockets for accessories...

    I am really enjoying it, and feel like it's a great blend of form, function and flair!

      The laptop sling is great to use when you don't want to lug a computer case around with you. I wish I had thought of this first! It's wonderful!

                  Comments about LAPTOP SLING:

                  This sling is perfect for a short time away from home. It's quite a snug fit, so I can't slip my charger alongside it as I'd hoped. But it serves the purpose I had: a sleeve with a strap. Wish the strap had a shoulder pad, though, because the 15" Macbook is kinda heavy!

                    Bought as a gift for my niece's first laptop. She is a small person and didn't want a "huge computer bag". She is thrilled! Fits great, is fun and hip, is not too bulky, great for travel.

                    I took it on a trip recently and my laptop was well protected from all the moving around but it was easy to carry and use. It looks great with casual clothes or if I need it for a business meeting. It was just what I wanted in a laptop sling.

                        This product is not a book or other type of publication - the categories you have available make no sense. The product it excellent. My 18-year old daughter - who secretly loves to get crayons and coloring books - will love to use her colorfast markers to create her own piece.
