A folded, circular piece of leather used to hold together a wrapped up iPhone / mobile device cable is one of those simple ideas that draws attention-to-detail seeking Apple fans, who also like the old world feel of leather.

Cord Tacos

I don't think I'm fanatical, but I wanted and bought a mixed colour and mixed sized set from the maker Mike of 'This is Ground', just so I could keep my cables separated, but together, in my bag.

Cord Tacos

You can see how these Cord Tacos are made up in the photos. I actually thought they were simple enough to make myself and play around with the sizes and look. I have a few leather tools and hardware, but I needed to get a few pieces of decent leather. Lo and behold, it turns out buying a small amount of leather online in the UK is almost just as expensive as buying these tacos.

I saved my DIY leather curiosity for another project, but as I've now had these Cord Tacos for a few months, I'd say that they're nice and tactile, but the fastening could be stronger (whether it's the length of the stud or the thickness of the leather itself).
