Based in Los Angeles, Camalen uses the finest European leathers to craft handmade Camalen cases for popular Apple devices. Their solutions are designed for changing the way these popular gadgets look and feel, which is why the brand derived its name from nature’s most adaptable creature, the chameleon. No telling why they didn’t use the exact spelling. Perhaps they saved the “o” and “h” for the consumer, because surely Apple-users who buy Camalen tablet cases will say “oh, wow!”
Camalen tablet cases are designed for the iPad2 and new iPad3. The current collection features 6 models: The Hexa ($115) back protector; the Armor ($80) tablet sleeve; the Palette, HipotenUSA, and Vision folio cases ($130 each); and the Turtle ($180) tablet bag with shoulder strap and accessory pockets. The Hexa and Palette cases each feature a 360 degree rotating hand strap, and the Vision is a unique folio that doubles as a car headrest mount. Colors are mostly black and neutral, but there are a couple bright red tablet cases for ladies.
Camalen cases have rich, elegant looks and grains, including some exotic lizard-like textures. These luxurious leather cases are definitely not for purposes of camouflage, but they will transform any enclosed iPad into something more precious and valuable than before.
