why this product

Protect your iPad mini or tablet from scratches and scuffs with this handmade leather sleeve. Unlike cases and sleeves made of polyurethane, this rich, lustrous leather case won't crack or break. It's thick leather protects your screen from shattered glass. The simple design is cut from a single piece of leather, has been stitched and scrutinized to exacting proportions using 100% vegetable tanned Horween leather. The top of the sleeve simply folds down and slides into a cross strap to keep your tablet secure.

use & care

The natural life of leather includes the development of color changes and scars. Efforts should only be made to clean the leather if it looks dirty—otherwise, it shouldn't need much care. If something is spilled on the sleeve, wick it off with a soft, damp cloth. 

production & design

The leather for these sleeves is produced by Chicago's Horween Leather Company, founded in 1905 and one of the oldest continuously running tanneries in the US. The leather is selected by the tannery's head grader, who has 40 years of experience working with quality hides. Each case is made by Defy Bags, a Chicago maker with studio space near the tannery. Their small team of skilled artisans carefully sews the sleeves in small batches.
