Bring Out the Artist in You With iCases
One of the fun things about owning Apple products is the search for the perfect case to match them. Whether you have an iPad (or iPad 2), an iPhone (whichever model), or a Mac laptop, there is always a case or two that will catch your eye. There are the classic kinds, and there are the quirky ones.
Speaking of quirky, I just discovered a line of cases for Apple products which fit the bill. For ease of writing, let us just call them iCases. Papernomad is a group of “socially conscious designers, marketing professionals, artists and one or two lunatics”. Their goal is to design and produce bags, covers, cases, and sleeves for mobile products that are sustainable and yet fashionable at the same time. They only use organic materials in their products.
That’s not the most remarkable thing about their products, though. After all, everyone and their mom seems to come up with organic products these days. What caught my eye about the iCases is the fact that you can add your own design by drawing, doodling, or writing on them. It’s like having your own coloring or drawing book – except that it’s the case for your favorite gadget! It can even “catch” your coffee, juice, or wine stains, which can very well add a new dimension to your case.
Think about it. You’re waiting for your friend at your favorite coffee shop, and you don’t feel like taking your gadget out. You can instead doodle on your case! If you’ve got mean doodling skills, who knows if you might be able to sell your case as a work of art in the future?
Not convinced? Take a look at the blank sleeves up there one more time. Now take a look at this.
You can’t deny that there is something appealing about the idea! At the very least, you can say that there is nothing in the world like your case!
Oh, and in case you are wondering about just how tough the iCases are, they are rather durable.
It is tear resistant and water resistant as well! Learn more and buy your own from Papernomad.
