iPad 2 Cover A Beautiful Certified Wood

Eco-friendly iPad cases abound–this one, designed for the iPad 2, is less of a case than a cover, but we like the way it combines form with function in one single, solid piece of certified wood.

The Miniot Cover for iPad 2 (which comes to us via How Green Works) covers the screen of your reader for storage and traveling. When you’re ready to use your iPad, simply flip the cover open, flip the whole thing over, and use it as a stand, in either portrait or landscape mode.

This elegant and simple design gets the job done, protecting the vulnerable side of the iPad without a lot of decorative frippery, but if you feel compelled to add your own, you can get your cover personally engraved for free. Very cool!

The Miniot Cover for iPad 2 starts at 50 Euro (around $71.00) and begins shipping this month.
