Fabric cases are those carriers made of a soft textile such as cloth or synthetics, with main advantage for the user in their light weight. Additionally, many of these cases sport eye-catching designs and are relatively inexpensive.
A wide range of styles may be seen in cloth tablet cases, including quite a few handmade cases among the lot – and fabric cases may especially be seen among sleeves and tablet bags. Fabric cases usually include some kind of lock, most commonly a snap-shut button or zipper.
It must be noted that fabric tablet cases do suffer a bit of a drawback in the area of protection. While the majority of fabric tablet cases perform well enough in terms of defending the screen against scratches and the back against minor damage, they simply can’t protect as well as hard cases. The user will need to carry the fabric case within another bag or use it only for stashing the tablet away.
