If you are like us, you will love your iPad, I love all my apple products and they demand a good looking case. Apple say that an iPad should not be hidden away in a bulky case, so we have taken our time and considered what is the best solution for a recycled sailcloth and iPad marriage.
The result of such wedlock is an envelope based cover.
Why? Well a zip can scratch when removing and inserting the ipad and can also scratch the edge when it is in place. A small flap just doesn’t feel secure enough and velcro has the same scratching issues. To this end, the entrance to our iPad home is just smooth fabric with a full lid to keep it nice and snug. We also think it just looks better.
The cover is made of a few parts, softer recycled sails form the outer case, there is then some thin padding which is currently thin foam taken from old matting, then we have sourced some spare micro fiber cloth (similar to sun glasses cleaner material) which is sandwiched together and edged with webbing. A small circular velcro patch is sewn to the envelope flap to keep it all secure. Stitching does not penetrate the micro fiber or foam so the iPad won’t get scratched.
Colour and Style
Currently we have white, neon or random colour options in our wightsails branding, as in the photos. Please let us know any preference of colour and we will do our best to accommodate.
All iPad models fit inside and if you have the very popular Smart Cover it will still fit inside. (photos courtesy of the iPad)
