In 1887, Frank Smythson opened his first shop on New Bond Street in London, presenting a trade card that described his business as, “First class stationary, leather goods and cabinet work”. Like many UK companies that offer similar traditional royal-British style, Smythson caters to high-end lifestyles with a diversified product line that includes: key rings, jewelry/watch cases, photo frames, purses and wallets, grooming, leather accessories and much more.
The company’s eclectic range of merchandise currently includes several Smythson tablet cases designed for iPad/iPad 2 and Kindles. To start, there are some basic tablet sleeves for iPad/iPad 2, priced $221-$340. Next, they offer one tablet folding case for the Kindle Keyboard ($308), and a selection of tablet folding cases and zippered tablet cases for the iPad 2 ($411-$513). For the ultimate in luxury and price, there are a couple of more zippered tablet cases for the iPad 2 ($6,640), each made of sumptuously rich genuine crocodile leather.
Smythson delivers products that are inspired by Britain’s cultural heritage, but you do not have to be British to recognize them as a luxurious choice fit for your device. Those with the financial fortitude will certainly be attracted to buy Smythson tablet cases.
