We love a good pencil case here at The Women’s Room and the one Ally Capellino has designed for The Tate shop, in traditional 16oz canvas, is right up our street. Firstly, it is very practical, with a removable zipper case (it’s velcro-ed on) for when you need to downsize, a couple of seperate pockets for small bits and then a generous amount of elastic space for pens. Secondly, it’s actually brilliant for a combination of pencils/make up/ phone/hand cream/usb sticks/perfume/oyster card and camera (plus extra battery) so turns itself into a ‘bag basic’ roll, which is full of the essential things you need in a handbag, so if like us you’re always swapping bags, this is a perfect ‘grab-all’.

It is £24.97 which is not cheap for a pencil case, but upgraded to ‘grab-all’ status it seems a perfect bargain.It would also be a good going-away-to-university-gift for stationery-obsessed students.The whole Ally Capellino range is pretty cool, we love the satchel and the sweet passport bag.
