Arcana Cases - Limited Editions

from 34.99

The cases in this listing are rare silks, available in *extremely* limited quantities! I can hardly bear to part with them, but I'm trying not to be selfish!


- Natural silk lining; elegant patterned exterior

- Sturdy machine-sewn seams

- Front pocket for cardboard insert or daily card

- Close-fitting clamshell closure

- Clean lines and compact form

- INNER LINING: 100% natural, off-white silk.


-------- Abbey Garden: Deep jade silk with a striking amber and pale yellow botanical border.

-------- Evening Blue Palazzo: A blue and purple dusk patterned in arcs, diamonds, and complex geometry.

-------- Crimson Carnation: stunning China red silk with a ruthlessly elegant stylized floral motif.

- STANDARD OPTIONS: Tarotista offers the following standard sizing options.

• Standard A Case for 2 3/4" x 4 3/4" x 1" (70 x 120 x 25mm) deck. Most Rider-Waite [aka Waite-Smith] decks will fit this case, as well as many U.S. Games tarot decks. It is the most common size of deck.

• Standard B Case for 2 5/8" x 4 3/4" x 1" (66 x 120 x 25mm) deck. Most Lo Scarabeo decks and many Tarots de Marseille (Camoin-Jodorowsky and CBD, for examples) will fit this case.

- CUSTOM SIZING: I can construct an Arcana Case to most sizes of deck, but this limited edition fabric may have size restrictions. If you would like an Arcana Case in a non-standard size, select the "Custom Size" option above. Then contact me with the EXACT height, width, and depth of your deck, measured to within 1/16" or 1mm. (I cannot issue refunds on custom cases, so please DOUBLE- and TRIPLE-check your measurements!)



As a longtime tarot reader, I've hunted for the ideal tarot receptacle for years - elegant, clean-cut, portable. I wanted clean lines, without drawstrings or ties or belts. I didn't want an open sack that could spill out its precious contents in my purse. I didn't want a bulky box whose corners could get crunched and broken and jostled. Nothing was quite right - so I designed one.

The Arcana Case is a lined and highly structured yet resilient cloth case. It closes like a cigarette box or clamshell, and when closed the case is close-fitting enough that it will not open on its own. Top-stitching, internal interfacing, and a removable cardboard insert help to maintain the boxlike structure, so that if your Arcana Case should happen to be flattened or crushed the shape can easily be restored by quickly ironing the creases.

If you wish, you can remove the cardboard insert, which sits in an opening between the lining and cover, in the front panel of the case. The opening also serves as a convenient place to stow your Card of the Day - or any other individual card you wish to set apart for contemplation or study.

DO YOU SEW? If you're an experienced sewist, you can buy the pattern instead of the deck. See "The Arcana Case Pattern'" listing in the Tarotista shop. You can download it right now!
