Why the different prices? It’s all about the material and the work that goes into producing each desk pad.
Leather will develop a beautiful patina, interacting with the natural oils in your hand or the condensation on your glass—but it can get damaged from too much water.
Wool will look the same on day 1000 as day 1. It resists water, doesn’t show wear patterns.
Linoleum is very easy to clean, especially compared to neoprene or cloth desk pads.
All three options are built to last more than a lifetime.
Beyond the numbers, here are some considerations:
Large and Extra Large desk pads might be right for you if: You love your desk and want to protect it at all costs You hate your desk and can’t stand to look at it Your desk is small and you want it to feel bigger You want to have a continuous field with enough space for all your work tools
Small and Medium desk pads might be right for you if: You love your desk and want to see most of it You want just a patch of contrast You have several modes of work. When you’re done with typing you want to slide your keyboard away and pull over your notebook. (Wool is especially good for this, because it slides the easiest on most desktops) You work in different spaces and want something portable
