So, while you may have to pay full price, here are a few ways to ease the pain:
In addition to being beautiful, this felted cover with a leather strap from Hideware has a special pocket for your headphones - brilliant!
A recycled tweed suit from Green Monkey & co makes a surprisingly good ipad case. Perhaps one for the gentlemen out there?
I like that this is a purse! I don't know why, but the idea of opening a clasp to access my computer appeals to me... And Kailochic have the purse in a couple of other really good fabrics, if birds aren't your thing.
And finally, leather is always a winner. The question is; how on earth would I keep this case from MHK Originals clean?
