  • Which iPad does Rugged Folio work with?

  • Can I fold this folio into a kickstand?
    Yes, Rugged Folio easily folds into a kickstand. Hidden magnets in Rugged Folio keep the kickstand locked in place.
  • Do the magnets in Rugged Folio interfere with the function of iPad Air?
    No, the magnets in Rugged Folio do not interfere with the function of the iPad Air. iPad Air was designed by Apple to interact with magnetic features of its cases. For example, the smart wake and sleep functionality is achieved by the specific placement of magnets in the folio cover.
  • Will the leather change over time?
    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.
  • How should I care for my Case's leather?
    Watch our instructional video below on caring for your leather. We recommend using leather conditioner made by Ashland Leather Co.

Horween Leather

We source this leather from the renowned Horween Leather Co. of Chicago, one of America’s oldest tanneries. Over time, the raw, vegetable tanned leather will patina, developing a look that is exclusively yours. From day 1 to 100, your case will weather but not wear out, creating a handsome, rich character unique to you.
