Bamboo iPad case is made by hand!
If you don’t know what an iPad is, then you must not be from this planet. Or maybe you just enjoy being surrounded by nature instead of electronics. Whether you’re a fan of the iPad or you despise it, you’re definitely going to appreciate the design of the DODOcase.
The DODOcase is an iPad case that features a simple faux leather exterior and a beautiful bamboo interior. Each case is handmade in San Francisco using traditional book binding techniques. But the coolest thing about them is not that they’re only $59.95. These cases were founded by two guys who were training for an Iron Man Canada Triathlon!
According to an article in the NYTimes, Patrick Buckley and Craig Dalton met while training for the 2005 triathlon. They were both entrepreneurs, and knowing that an estimated 17 million iPads were going to be sold within the year, they decided to create the ultimate case for it. Thus, the DODOcase was born. These cases are lightweight and easy to carry, and they’re designed to fold back so you can stand your iPad up. Plus, the red interior doesn’t look half bad.
The DODOcase recently won the Shopify Build-a-Business Competition for new Web Stores, in which emerging new businesses compete to receive the highest revenue for two consecutive months.
Remember that I said these cases were made using old bookbinding techniques? Watch this video and see for yourself.
Not too shabby, right? If you own an iPad, iPad 2 or New iPad and you’re looking for a cool cover, I highly suggest that you purchase one from the DODOcase website.
