Laro Expandable Rectangular Pencil Case’s main selling point is its versatility. While maintaining its rectangular form allows you to save space in your bag, the pencil case also expands in size, allowing you to hold not only pens and pencils, but also items like scissors, rulers, and other office items. How is it done?

The zippered side flap can be unzipped, allowing the pencil case to transform into a desk organizer that can hold long desk accessories like rulers and paintbrushes. The structured wide opening allows you to easily see and retrieve the contents held within the pencil case. The case can even fit roles of washi tapes of up to 1.7 inches or 4.3 cm in diameter. Lastly, the previously mentioned wristlet allows you to carry the case around outside your bag to save storage space, or to be carried on your arm if needed.

How is this product sustainable? Well, the product makes use of vegan leather, specifically, the product’s main material is made out of water lilies making it very durable. So not only do you get a pencil case that morphs and transforms, but you are also getting a product that benefits the environment.

The pencil case was made locally, by locals, with the local population in mind. This can be especially seen in the product’s design choice of showcasing different Philippine games as printed on the pencil case! Different designs showcase different common Philippine games as follows:

  • Tatsulok – Habulan
  • Tatsulok – Piko
  • Tatsulok – Luksong tinik
  • Tatsulok – Langit lupa

If you’re looking for a more minimalistic design that still carries all these features, the product also has a Tatsulok-Plain variation.
