Apple may have introduced the new iPhones and even the much-anticipated Watch during their last event, but the new iPad failed to make an appearance. Well, we now have to wait until October to learn if there are new Cupertino tablets hitting the market. In the meantime it’s a new season and a chance to dress up our iPad Airs in a thicker skin for autumn. Wood is a great material for case makers ensuring both durability and striking looks on top of great functionality. Let’s take a deeper look into the top 5 wooden cases for the iPad Air.
Made from a combination of oak and bamboo, the Libreria from Primovisto is an attractive book tablet case sporting excellent impact protection. The tablet rests within a special frame inside the case with total access to its ports and buttons, but protected from all sides. The interior is lined with an ultra-soft fabric preventing any unnecessary scratches. There’s also an elastic strap lock – keeping the case securely shut when not in use. Libreria can also double up as an integrated stand with several convenient viewing angles.
