During High School, designer Charles Friedman worked as a sail maker building and repairing boat sails on the coast of Maine. When his grandfather's leather wallet fell apart, Charles decided to construct a new one from sailcloth scraps and was pleasantly surprised to find that this water-resistant material is perfectly suited to swiftly navigate delicate possessions through the elements.

Built with the same high-tech racing sailcloth used by the world's sailing elite, the exterior of this unique sleeve is constructed out of tough, pre-consumer sailcloth made from durable carbon fiber and polyester matrixes. Distinguishd as some of the toughest, lightest, and most resilient cloths in the world, these core fibers have several times the tensile strength of steel. The interior is insulated with thick felt made from recycled plastic bottles. The inner and outer elements combine resulting in a striking case that provides your tablet with the ultimate protection from moisture, smudges, and scratches. Comfortably fits iPad 1 and 2, HP Touchpad, and Motorola Xoom 10 inch tablets. Handmade in Maine.
