Sure those DoDo iPad cases are the hottest thing on the market right now, like some kind of Tickle Me Elmo for adults. But frankly, we prefer a handmade leather case like these from Etsy seller Julie Boyles. It’s not trying to be something it isn’t (a Moleskine), and instead just works really well as being a stylish, classic, beautiful piece of leather working. To be honest, it’s almost cooler than the iPad itself. Cases come in both horizontal and vertical formats, and in a variety of leather dyes and textures, from simple brown to the distressed burgundy. We also like the idea of supporting the little guy… or gal in this sense, who makes all of these on her own, by hand.
