In a variety of iPad and iPhone protection, mainly based on leather, not surprising that Dutch manufacturer, Minot is singled out with its unique wooden accessories for iPhone and iPad. Here is actually about Dutch craftsmen’s second generation of cladding and protection an iPad with wood – new Mk2 cover for the iPad 2 and 3.
You can choose between two options: the first one is the standard series which is a simple wooden case handcrafted in a single wood of your choice (cherry, walnut, oak, smoked oak, maple, mahogany, and padouk; all come with a black ultrasuede microfiber interior), while second version, called “Tone your own” will allow you get to design a vertical wooden color block pattern on the front of your cover, and to choose from six different ultrasuede microfiber interior liner colors: black, colonial red, admiral (blue), brownstone, amber gold and silver pearl, of course for a bit more money.
If you compare this new MK2 with its predecessor, you’ll find magnetic enhanced side-wide hinge, smooth microfiber lining which is able to safely roll-up doubling as a stand solution. According to some users, the only drawback may be that the cover could become de-magnetized after only a few weeks and slips off easily.
The Standard version will cost you €69 ($89), while customization version starts at €89 ($114) and include personal engraving, mixing wood tones, and six different colors. Construction and shipping from the Netherlands takes about three weeks. [Miniot]
