ecoAndman 11.6″ Macbook Air Sleeve
Been looking around shops for a protective case or a sleeve for the new 11.6″ Macbook Air to no avail. Fortunately, someone noticed my post on the new MBA and offered to send me a sample of a native, hand-made custom sleeve.
The package finally arrived yesterday and here’s what it looks like — a 100% handwoven, organically dyed woven raffia sleeve specifically made for the Macbook Air 11.6″.
I am told that these are specially handcrafted and handwoven by Boholano artisans from organic raffia fibers.
The sleeve fits perfectly on the MBA and is lined from the inside with smooth material so it doesn’t scratch the device (not that aluminum can be scratched that easily). The padding is a bit thin so don’t expect this will help protect from drops.
The cover is also lined with magnetic strips so it’s held firmly in place when closed.
The online store is hosted on Etsy (see here) and they have close to a dozen designs for the MBA alone. They’re pretty affordable too, starting at just $25 each.
The owner, Rachel, tells me they also have sleeves for other Macbook models and the iPad. The selection looks like a good option as a gift this Christmas. Check out econAndman collection here.
