The oldest meets the newest. God used leather to cover Adam and Eve and we use leather to cover your keyboard.
The simplest meets the most complex. A tough piece of leather and suede, sewn up the sides, with a simple strap to close, meets the keyboard that is so technologically advanced, it makes me want to suck my thumb.
The thickness of our leather along with the soft pigskin suede lining, should be plenty to keep your iPad healthy. And the way the leather is folded over at the bottom, the ends are higher than the middle to absorb the shock of a drop. This leather case is insulative against extreme temperatures that kill battery life, far more than most synthetic cases. Protecting battery life is a big big deal.
The sleeve, with the flap laid open facedown, can be used to set the iPad on instead of on a dirty or rough surface. The pencil is perfectly protected, when charging, just below the lip of the Soft Leather iPad Pro Case to keep it connected while in your bag. This leather sleeve should fit your next ten iPad Pros. And when they stop making iPads, use it until you die for carrying documents or receipts or organizing your briefcase.
We over-engineered with the materials, just in case. They protect a little bit better, age a little more handsomely and just never fail. Heck, even the glue to attach the lining is overkill, but why not? Made from one solid piece of cow leather, which is the strongest cow leather there is (full grain boot leather, but thicker) and the pigskin suede lining is stronger than the cow leather. Our thread is unbelievably strong industrial marine grade UV resistant polyester thread.
The materials are more protective and enduring than most anything you'll find. That was our intention.
