Case Closed: New from the folks at Case Closed is a series of German Wool Felt sleeves (iPad 3; £23 to £33) certified specifically to work with the third-generation iPad. Like the company's other products, these sleeves are ethically built from natural fibers and are shipped using materials that are 100 percent recyclable.
Draw: The company's iPad Sleeve (iPad 2 and iPad 3; £23) features a simple but sturdy construction to help you safely carry around your tablet without adding significant bulk to it. It's made of 1000D Cordura fabric woven around a closed-cell-foam material for protection against bumps and scratches.
Gone Studio: The Greensleeve (iPad, iPad 2, and iPad 3; $30) is as green as green can get: Made entirely from German sheep's wool, these sleeves are produced exclusively using hand and foot tools, resulting in a product that uses only natural materials and human-powered processes. It's available in kiwi green or charcoal grey.
Hammerhead: The Capo (iPad 2 and iPad 3; $40) is made of lightweight polyurethane and features reinforced corners for maximum strength and protection. The case's front cover is compatible with the iPad's magnetic sleep/wake feature, and can fold over to prop up the tablet for viewing or typing. It comes in blue, red, white, black, or orange.
