Say Hello to the Grove iPad Case for the iPad 3 errrr.... "new iPad"
This is the first of our 3 product releases for the brand new iPad, announced today by Apple.
Sound the alarms and get ready to show off the head-turning Grove iPad Case for the new 3rd generation iPad. Surrounding the big reveal of the new iPad specifications, our design team has been working around the clock to create a case for the product building off the popular aesthetic of our iPad 2 Case. Eye-catching design, functionality, and natural materials come together in this tight ensemble crafted in our Portland workshop.
In addition to our all-natural vegetable-tanned leather, we’re excited to offer a new variation of our case. Our luxurious wool felt imported from Germany is a great accent to the bamboo shell of the case and a perfect alternative for those who choose not to use leather products.
In listening to your feedback about our iPad 2 case, we’ve made a design improvement we think you’ll love: the new single panel leather cover is now permanently attached to the bamboo shell, making it work great on your lap in landscape mode. This offers a more convenient experience and can easily be folded flat against the back of the case for optimal functionality, also putting the new iPad to sleep automatically when not in use.
We’re thrilled with the visual result of our newest case, but we’ll let you be the judge:
In terms of functionality, the bamboo shell is incredibly secure; the new iPad won’t slip out of the case no matter how hard you dance while holding it (we dance pretty hard around here) with our special over-hang design.
Our all-natural, vegetable-tanned leather has the same wonderful feel as our iPhone Leather Backs released last week. For the leather option, choose from plain, Artist Series, or a custom image of your choice if you really want to make your friends jealous.
The new iPad Case is priced at $139 for wool felt, $139 for plain leather, $149 for Artist Series Leather, and $179 for custom engraved leather. Place your order by March 31st, and we will offer a $20 discount to celebrate the launch of iPad 3!
Yeah, we’re pretty excited over here.
Have further questions? Reach out on our Facebook wall and we’ll get back to you in no time. Stay tuned next week for our next all-natural accessory for Apple’s latest release!
**UPDATE 3/8. We do not know if our new case will fit the iPad 2 until we get our hands on the new iPad and finalize the fit. For now, please assume only the new iPad (3rd gen) will fit. Please stay tuned!**
