pap ipad cover
Since working and using gadgets is so much more inspirational and fun with quirky and pleasing accessories Prosit felt it necessary to get this awesome in all its simplicity protective iPad sleeve for the little green friend.
From Swedish company P.A.P, which is a leather goods company (not working with recycled leather unfortunately) with a range of very pleasing to the eye, clean lines, handcrafted handbags and accessories with lovely little details, like the brass button.
I know it may come as a surprise I didn't go for something bright and colourful, but grey is actually a non-colour I find rather pleasing at times - and besides, the woolly sleeves and covers don't come in bright colours (alas). The leather ones do, but since they aren't sadly made of recycled leather they weren't an option. The applegreen and bright yellow ones are awesome colours though.
Apart from the design (there's something so irresistable with the envelope shape I think, closing and opening it is like hiding or receiving a special gift somehow) the best thing about this iPad cover though is the fact that the material is a blend of wool, recycled plastic and PET-bottles - the P.A.P customer service still haven't gotten back to me on the % of recycled vs new material. It's also weather-proofed and said to made to last for many many years to come.
I also adore the simple no-fuss packaging. And of course the brass button with the simple string closure. And the snuggly grey hue, the rugged surface of the recycled mix material.
