This Is Ground – Gets Your Sh*t Together

This Is Ground | Mod Laptop 2

As I travel a lot for work, I struggle with packing all my gadgets, chargers, cables, notebooks etc in an organized manner. They usually end up scrambled in my hand luggage (read: tote bag) along with pens, passport, foreign change, keys, boarding cards, wallet, lip balm, sunglasses, old receipts, chewing gum, more lip balm, business cards, camera, half-eaten crackers, bandaids, clean socks, water bottles and all the other extremely important things I can’t live without.


Not the best solution, and definitely not optimal for getting through check-in and security in a smooth and ordered style…

Enter This Is Ground! Organizing your stuff has never looked easier (or better). This LA based brand offers handmade leather cases suitable for all your needs, with optional inserts for even more organized storage. The Mod Laptop 2 shown here has room for a laptop, tablet, power adapter, cords, pens, pencils, stylus, notepads, phone, hard drive, battery pack, glasses, cards and currency. I think this may be the solution to many of my problems… Maybe it won’t solve the issue of cracker crumbs in my camera lens, but most of the other things should be easier to find, right?

Ems Designblogg is all about Scandinavian style, soft minimalism and beautiful functionalism. The blog is Sweden's oldest interior design blog and has been up and running since 2005. I strive to fill it with a mix of inspirational and aspirational images from all over the world, while keeping true to my own voice and style, where transparency is key and creative criticism is highly valued. When I'm not blogging, I bake chocolate cakes for my kids, hang around Stockholm's cafés and drink way too many cappuccinos, do some occasional styling work, and try to fit in some inspiring travel adventures in between. If you have any suggestions, propositions for collaborations, other ideas or just want to say hi, throw an email at: [email protected].
