Which iPad does Modern Leather Case work with?
Rugged Case was designed specifically for iPad Pro 11-inch (2nd gen), but is also compatible with iPad Pro 11-inch (1st gen). The only difference when using the Modern Leather Case on an iPad Pro 11-inch (1st gen) is that the camera opening on the back of the case is larger than the camera itself. Rugged Case is not compatible with iPad Pro 11-inch (3rd gen) yet.
Our Horween leather is vegetable-tanned, imbued with natural waxes and oils, and the surface is not sprayed with a synthetic sealant, allowing it to develop a beautiful patina. For best care, use a quality leather conditioner. Learn more
How are our cases different from other leather cases?
The Horween leather used in our cases is made in the traditional style dating back to 1905. Most leathers use synthetic tanning chemicals, synthetic dyes, spray paints and spray sealants to make a "perfect" surface. We don't think modern leathers are perfect. After so many synthetic treatments, it is hardly leather at all. We love real, old style American leather.
Will the leather scratch?
Designed with American leather that will scuff and mark. If you always want a perfect finish, this is not the case for you. But, if you are after the perfect authentic leather patina, this is absolutely the case for you.
