Wood Cases for the iPad Air

Simply protecting our gadgets from the hustle and bustle of our modern lives can become a tedious and bothersome battle of the wits. Whether it’s hiding them from our pets, scratching the screens with our nails or simply laying them into our bags; it is imperative to modern work and social life that our technology remains both unspoilt and protected.

There is only one antidote to banish these annoyances, and that is a case. Cases come in all shapes and sizes, but most are futile in the face of what the world throws our way. A case made of soft material might stop scratches, but is your gadget protected from a long drop onto a solid concrete or deep water?

The solution to all of these issues can be found in a case made of wood. A supple, robust and lightweight cover designed to protect the gadget and charm the eye. Here are some reviews to help you make the decision to transit from the old to the new, the artificial to the natural and, most importantly, from the unsustainable to the ecological.

DodoCase

DodoCase

The DodoCase is highly personal as its top quality, and well nurtured design is tantamount to the art of authentic bookbinding. It features the strongest wood in the world, bamboo, which will keep your iPad safe and secure whilst allowing access to the camera, volume and Lightning port settings. It is also customizable, with any colour available and also printed images of your own choice, enabling you to vivify your own character. All products are hand-crafted in San Francisco.

Toast

Toast is a wood-crafting company based in Portland, Oregon. For iPad users, they will offer a slim, refined stick-on skin for your device, made with wood that is intricately carved by hand and laser. It connects with your iPad purely by bended wood, which is adjusted to fit your device like a glove. It is even accompanied with a button cover to create a more comprehensive appearance, and the fact that it applies to your iPad with naturally modified wood means that residue or chemicals of any sort won’t be leaving any adverse, damaging side effects. Ash, bamboo, ebony and walnut options are available. The difference is mainly in shading and texture, the strength being relatively the same; with bamboo being the strongest.

As well as DodoCase, Pad & Quill also offers a book style case for the iPad Air 2. On the outside, brown or black bonded leather is offered and a variety of colours can be chosen for the inside cloth. Your iPad is protected on the inside by a birch frame, all of the wooden material being quality assured and sourced sustainably from protected forests. You can go the extra mile by purchasing theAria model, with a full grain leather front cover or you can stick to the linen cover instead to save money.
