ipad cases by levi price & eric rea

bowden + sheffield

the bowden and sheffield are minimalist, hand crafted cases for ipad. the inspiration for the project came from levi when he was unable to find a case that featured minimalist design and a high level of protection while not being attached to the ipad full-time.

the cases are hand crafted from the highest quality, most natural materials possible. additionally, the majority of the materials are produced within fifty miles of fine grain’s studio in the beehive state. both cases feature a magnetic closure system on the cover and ultra-soft inner felt lining to help keep the ipad safe and secure. to pay homage to those who have come before them, the cases are named after eric and levi’s ancestors surnames.

the bowden is milled from aircraft-grade aluminum, bead-blasted and hard-anodized. other features include a choice of hand finished walnut or cherry hardwood and black or brown full-grain, chrome-tanned leather.

the sheffield is made of milled polycarbonate, also with a choice of hand finished cherry or walnut hardwood. the cover is 100% natural wool felt. one of the more intriguing features of the sheffield is its ability to be used as a dry-erase board.

the project is currently seeking funding on kickstarter under then project name bowden + sheffield minimalist ipad cases.
