Welcome to the high end of the tablet cases world. This week, Tablet2Cases attempts to tempt the expensive tastes of tablet owners with a list of the Top 5 Designer Cases. Even if some of these cases are slightly out of your price range, feel free to enjoy ogling these unique and classy items that your iPads and eReaders would love...
1. Gucci Patterned iPad case
Appropriately leading the list is one of the fashion world’s biggest names: Gucci. The label’s Diamond Patterned iPad Case is crafted with genuine Italian leather tablet cases and soft suede interior worthy of the signature diamond logo in a tablet case that has simply no substitutes.
2. The Caseable iPad 2 Custom Book Jacket – Buy Now for $49.90
The Caseable Book Jacket’s 100% online customization options are amazing, putting this one at the top in the design category – this tablet case can truly be an individual, one-of-a-kind item. However, the Caseable tablet case is a bit lacking in protection and functionality (beyond an average tablet stand ).
3. The Thom Browne Luxury Designer iPad case
One for sophisticated iPad owners, the Thom Browne iPad tablet bag debuted in the designer’s Fall/Winter 2011 collection. Made of high-quality black leather and accessorized with gold details and lock, this remains one of the classiest Apple iPad cases available.
4. Wardmaster iPad Book Jacket in Crystal Pattern Carbon Black – Buy Now for $44.95
Wardmaster seemingly gets a product on every Tablet2Cases Top 5 – apparently they make pretty good cases. The iPad Book Jacket makes this list for providing excellent feel with a sturdy matte-carbon exterior for robust impact protection. Another plus is in the excellent stand case functionality.
5. The Béta Version Limited Edition Pixelfolk eReader Case – Buy Now for $39.95
For an excellent handmade limited-edition tablet case, look to Hungary. Crafted with Italian leather, Budapest-based Beta Version produces these beautiful iPad tablet cases with the distinctive “Pixelfolk” envelope-style design. The pair of talented designers Béta based these cases’ punch-hole pixilated design on local folk art. The Pixelfolk eReader Case is available in three colors exclusively at Tablet2Cases.
Special mention: The Domenico Vacca Designer iPad Case
In some ways, Domenico Vacca’s iPad cases may be the ultimate in tablet designer cases : Crafted in Italy, these tablet cases are handmade with alligator skin, are available in 25 different colors and may be custom-ordered. This designer case proved popular enough for its first edition of pre-made cases sold out in under one hour. The downside (for most of the 99% anyway)? A $3900 price tag.
