IX Tablet Case
The IX tablet case (jaguar in Mayan) combines fashion and tradition. Each iPad carrying case starts with hand dyed threads that are woven together, then hand stitched and bound with leather. Each case is one-of-a-kind.
Crafted by indigenous females in the highlands of Guatemala using backstrap weaving (a traditional Mayan technique that's been practiced for over 2,000 years). It takes at least two full days for artisans spend to make one ‘lienzo’ or backstrap woven textile.
