I’ve owned a couple of cheap (sub $100) iPad and laptop cases over the years but one thing I’ve learnt is that when it comes to quality and craftsmanship, the $500 you pay for a well made handcrafted leather iPad cover is one you’ll profit from when 10 years later, the technology is outmoded but the premium leather case has not only matured well but still kicking.

Beautiful Vichithong Leather iPad Cases

A Swedish company, Vichithong is a relatively new outfit from 2012. Producing all sorts of leather goods and accessories but focusing on wares for the laptop and iPad, the costs are the result of exquisite handcraftmanship right in Sweden. Using only the finest imported leather from Italy and hand sewn from start to end, each product is a creation as unique as its Vichithong crafter.

Vichithong might have been founded in 2012 but its namesake founder, Arunrat Vichithong has over 15 years of experience in the art of fine leather goods- so I guess you could say the marquee combines the benefits of youth and experience. Hailing from Gnosjö, Sweden, she apprenticed under her father at the local leather factory honing skills for what could possibly be the world’s 2nd best known Swedish well-designed export after IKEA.
