Thanks for taking a look at our handmade leather tablet cases. We have been handcrafting these tablet cases for over 5 years and through the years we have been perfecting the design and look of our cases. We love to listen to the feedback from our customers and reflect what we hear back into our design and making process. So you could really view our cases as a collaborative project between us and the people who have purchased and used our products for years.
There is so much to appreciate when you purchase one of our leather tablet cases. The story of each tablet begins on Jeff’s Mac. This is where Jeff carefully evaluates the size, dimensions, and features of the tablet. Using Adobe Illustrator, Jeff creates a perfect model of the case which is sent to our laser cutter. At this stage we pull out a roll of our imported Italian leather and smooth it out to the edges, carefully selecting a gorgeous section of leather to cut from. The hide is then loaded into the cutter and each feature is precision cut. Now, the case is ready to be prepped and stitched. One of our four maker artisans will install the snaps, hammer the rivets and begin stitching the case together by hand. This is the step where your piece receives the most attention. It will be in the artisan’s gloved hands during the entire stitching and wet-molding process. Wet-molding is how we craft perfectly shaped pieces to hold your tablet in securely at all times. After the case is stitched and dried it is hammered again and burnished with eco-friendly wax to finish the edges. Finally, the case is taken to the shipping counter, wrapped carefully in tissue paper and shipped straight to you. As you can see, each tablet case is a labor of love and nothing that falls below our exacting standards ever leaves the studio.
Some of the features that separate our work aside from the crowd is the durability and strength of the leather we use. Here at Hand and Hide, we use only top quality leather, like Buttero to construct our leather goods. That is why you can drop your case over and over again for years and your tablet will always be fully protected. We are also chosen for the gorgeous aesthetic we design into our cases. Customers love our book-style cases that look professional and elegant whether you are at work or traveling. Form, however, is useless without function in this case and we respect the needs of the user as well as device features when we created this product. Our cases are designed to allow full use of your tablet inside the case. You never need to remove your tablet from the case to access any feature, making our design one of the more efficient styles available in luxury materials. Thanks to feedback from our customers we have also incorporated a pocket for note-taking, writing implements and currency storage so you are prepared and organized for whatever the day will bring. Take a look at some of our customer testimonials regarding our tablet carrying cases.
