I was lucky enough to be gifted this beautiful leather envelope by Shinola that is finished in a timeless emerald green. It is my second iPad case, however is a standout piece as it has so much character.
It has a unique feel due to the hand-sewn, raw cut edges, a hand-sewn whipstitched internal card pocket and an unlined interior. To top this, it has its own individual number giving it a truly individual feel: not a mass produced look compared to most iPad cases.
Made from premium vegetable tanned Horween leather in a tannery in Ste. Genevieve, Missouri, where they use hand-based techniques used many years ago, owing to the amazing look and feel of the soft yet durable leather that is guaranteed to look better with age over time.

Happy New Year!
