It seems like a daft idea – a wood-effect case for an iPad – but it’s lovely

A year ago, we laughed at the iPad and regarded it as Steve Jobs’ big iBoobed. Now the age of the tablet is with us – and it rules the world. However, iPads, both version 1 and 2, are slippery critters and do need a case. Enter this wonderful model from Taiwan, made of microfibre, which feels like a gorgeously tactile blend of leather and cork. Ozaki does five other woody finishes and, even though a wood-effect case seems daft, they are very lovely.
