A stunning new range of soft cases for concert and soprano size ukuleles has been specially created for the summer season 2011, in a limited edition of 39. Made from 100% cotton canvas material sourced directly from Honolulu, the soft cases come in three different prints showing scenes of life in Hawaii before Statehood in 1959. These are the very last yards of fabric and no more will be made in this material when stock runs out.
Price £55 (plus UK 1st Class Recorded postage £4.48)
THE VERY LAST PIECES OF FABRIC HAVE RECENTLY DISCOVERED IN A DRAWER!
TWO SURFBOARD HAWAIIAN SCENE CONCERT CASES AVAILABLE ONE GREY CONCERT CASE AVAILABLE
The soft cases fit the ukulele perfectly giving them a stylish and well protected covering with a snug fitted padded lining in a complementary two tone satin quilted material to match. The lining is made in one of the few remaining quilting factories in London and the covers are hand made in Spitalfields.
The bags have a useful back strap and a buckle to alter to your own individual required length so that they can be carried over the shoulder or across your back comfortably and also feature an additional useful carry handle on the side.
Washing Instructions: Hand wash only in cold water and line dry.
A note by Lucinda Douglas-Menzies:
“You might be wondering why on Earth a photographer would suddenly be making ukulele soft cases? I have been learning to play the ukulele at The Duke of Uke music workshops over the last couple of years; I’m a beginner but it’s great fun to learn in a group on this instrument . My instrument had a flimsy black bag that it came with and I often thought of getting a better case for it. This then led to the idea of making one and whilst looking at fabrics one day I chanced upon the print you see above of the garlanded couple – the man playing the ukulele under a palm tree to a lovely woman seated on the sand with the waves gently lapping the shore, with the volcano in the background -and was so inspired by it that I bought up the last remaining stock of this material and thus the idea was born!”
