This handmade iPad Case is made from chrome tanned leather. The grain side is left natural, while the flesh side is stained a dark olive and hot waxed to create a smooth finish. The closure band is made from vegetable tanned leather, with wax burnished edges for a smooth, worn-in look – a signature of the case’s maker and designer, Stephen Kenn.
The case is built to be used everyday. The materials have been treated to age well, creating a nice patina.
Artist and designer Stephen Kenn moved from his native Canada to pursue a career in denim and leather accessories design in Los Angeles. He started his own line when an industry friend let him in on a little known secret: a stockpile of leftover fabrics and textiles from World War II was ferreted away in a downtown warehouse. Awed by this discovery, Stephen visited the warehouse several times, sitting atop a mountain of surplus material and pondering the war heroes that once donned these garments. Eventually, he was inspired to create a line of minimal, comfortable furniture using these recycled fabrics. His product line has now expanded to include bags and accessories, which also pay homage to military aesthetics.
Simple band closure allows you to easily slip the top flap of this iPad case open and closed, while keeping your gadget securely in place. Smaller size also available for iPad Minis. Handmade in L.A. by Stephen Kenn. (more info)
