PRODUCT STORY

Melissa says: This iPad sleeve is handmade and no two are alike. We aquire various styles of uniforms, measure and cut all patterns by hand, individually stamp and assign a number to each one.This product is made from a pair of fire fighter pants that were donated from a local firehouse. The exterior, interior, and even the label inside are made from the gear.



In 2011, Ari Creations founder Melissa Gazzaneo was in Bali, and noticed a severe lack of art supplies for the children in the area. From such small moments ideas are born. Ari Creations is an idea born of such a moment. Standing for Art Reach International, Ari Creations re-purposes rescue gear into fashionable, one of a kind bags and accessories. Handcrafted locally out of materials that have already passed the harshest tests, Ari Creation's Resk products will seed the minds of generations to come.

Each Ari Creation is one-of-a-kind, because each is made by hand from unique reclaimed materials. Take a look at the product story and the alternate images (check out that handle!) to learn more about this upcycled iPad sleeve, then let us know your thoughts on the Code 3.

This is a great idea, ipads are worth keeping safe, and how safe they would be in this sturdy sleeve. Although I believe it had been cut from the trouser leg! I also love the whole concept behind Ari! And Upcycling is the way forward for our children!

@ Lou - There is a pocket on the front that spans the width of the sleeve and measures approx 5.5" deep.
