This luxurious/rugged and well built IPAD case will protect your IPAD in style. . Luxurious enough for use at the office, and rugged enough for use just about anywhere. I can cut it to fit the ipad 3 or make it a bit smaller to fit the new ipad air. Please choose option at checkout.

NOTE: For a case large enough to hold documents, see my listing here https://www.etsy.com/listing/103436563/leather-document-case-folio-attache-full?ref=shop_home_feat

Made of beautiful - rugged 6 oz. Full Grain veg tan leather (which will break in beautifully) ; it will develop a wonderful natural patina over time as only full grain veg tan leather can do. (Gets better with age)

The case shown is hand stained in Antique Brown, I can also leave it Natural (undyed). If you prefer natural just leave me a note at checkout.

It is stitched using heavy duty thread for durability, and assembled in my shop in Illinois.

Has a leather wrap around closure that doesn't get in the way of the good looks of the leather. Please NOTE: The lace shown in the picture may vary in color from the actual lace used in your case depending on what shade of brown lace is available at the time. As noted above, I can also change the type of closure if you prefer.

***I make these cases ONE BY ONE as orders are received. Please allow up to 10 business days for construction during the Christmas shopping season***

(See Below for "How I Make This Case")

COLOR CHOICES
Antique Brown (Shown) or Natural (undyed)

IMPORTANT: I cut the case to fit an ipad air or ipad without any type of add on cover. If you need the case bigger to accommodate an add on cover (such as smart cover or any other) let me know at checkout and I'll make it a flat 3/4 inches wider to accommodate the add on cover. Sorry, but I can't do custom sizes as there are too many different add on covers available for me to keep up with all of them. Please don't forget to tell me IF you have an add on cover. I cannot offer refunds or exchanges if you forget to tell me up front. Thanks. :-)


********************FREE Hand Stamped Initials******************
As my way of saying THANK YOU for your purchase, I will gladly hand stamp up to 3 initials on the front flap of the case. (Please note: there are NO dots between letters)

I stamp them in a half inch or quarter inch open block style font.

Just let me know the three initials in the instructions to seller and if you want LARGER (Half inch) or the SMALLER quarter inch font. If you don't specify, I'll use the HALF inch.

*****HOW I MAKE THIS CASE in ANTIQUE BROWN*****
Making this case requires quite a bit of prep time, plus one whole day for finish. Using the process I do renders a beautiful GLOW to the leather not achievable any other way. Here's what I do.

1: I cut the leather from a side of (expensive) Premium veg tan.
I edge the leather using a special tool called an "edger". (imagine that)
I dampen the leather and stamp on your initials on the front flap(Or wherever you want them) and stamp my makers mark on the back out of the way.
I poke the stitch holes using a diamond awl and a divider.
I apply a very WET first coat of a special stain mixture.
I let the first coat DRY overnight as the leather is pretty much saturated at this point.

2: I apply four to five LIGHT washes of a leather dye and let that dry a couple of hours. When dry I apply 4 to 5 light WASHES of a darker dye. I then let everything dry overnight.

3: If necessary, I add another light coat of yesterdays dye...if not, I apply 2 light washes of an antiquing stain and let that dry for at least 3 hours.

If I'm satisfied with the overall color, I'm ready to oil the leather with a light coat of neatsfoot, and let it soak in overnight.

4: If everything looks satisfactory, I'll apply 1 light coat of an old finish formula that dates back many decades. This renders a mellow sheen to the leather and a protective coat.

5: I stitch up the case with waxed thread, buff it, and lightly stain the edges.

the case is prepared for shipping.
