We’ve long had a thing for the Portland-based design shop known as Grove, a team of artisans specializing in arty, personalized bamboo accessories for all your essential tech. They made a name for themselves with their unique iPhone cases, and now they’re back to protect your iPad 2 in style.
The Grove iPad 2 Case is constructed from quick-growing, renewable bamboo and good old fashioned leather. The bamboo back and side panels provide your tablet with structure, while the ultra-suede-lined leather cover keeps your screen free from fingerprints.
The cover is made of American, vegetable-tanned leather and incorporates magnets that automatically wake the iPad 2 when it’s opened, and put it to sleep when closed. The best part? The cover can be laser-engraved with many of Grove’s ever-expanding artist series designs–very cool!
Groves’ iPad 2 Cover is available at a special introductory price of $79.00 via pre-order. If, for some odd reason, this one doesn’t fit your fancy, there’s also a nice wooden iPad 2 case from Minot as well.
