Those iPad 2 covers, with their magnets and segments and everything, are nice. Sure. But they're not very distinctive, are they? You're not another cog in Steve Jobs' shiny machine! You're an individual, dammit!
This hand-stitched leather iPad 2 case won't magically turn your iPad on when opened, but it will look like something someone carried documents in before lightbulbs existed, which is something. It's even got a pouch in front for headphones! Of course, for $175 it's a pretty expensive way to feel unique, but hey, you already bought an iPad 2, so clearly you aren't that concerned about frivolous purchases.
