WHY? Function and beauty in one fell swoop.
Of Note: Multi-functional Features- Built in leather hand strap, pencil holder and organizer pocket.
A Recent Review: “My favorite part of this case is that it snaps and holds the iPad in and doesn’t cover up so much of the front around the screen like a lot of other cases do. The material and quality is great, and makes the iPad feel like a premium sketchbook. I really like the hand strap as well for extra support if you’re using it or drawing while holding it. The elastic strap is also nice to wrap around the front to hold the cover so it doesn’t open up. And of course, I really like that it has the pen loop to hold the Apple Pencil.” -Boom

When the pizza came out of the oven, I hit it with fresh basil and a long drizzle of this honey. IN. CRED. I. BLE.” -Pejutah
