Calder guitar case silk velvet lining

Calder guitar and violin cases will be lined with hand painted silk velvet. The variations in shades in this material are almost impossible to photograph.
Here's a shot from the studio that gives a hint of how the material catches the light.

Calder case on location

To me a well designed product must look good in action/on the street- not just in luscious studio photographs/beautifully lit store displays.
Further I believe a distinguised design will be recognisable from just a glimpse of one part.
I think the Calder case meets these criteria.

Here are some shots to illustrate what I mean.
