Orbino has unveiled its new Padova Case for the Apple iPad. This form-fitting flip-style case is hand-stitched with waxed thread and constructed from fine leather and exotic animal skins. Features include a brushed metal Home button cover, a protective front cover with magnetic closure that flips open to serve as a vertical or horizontal stand, cutouts for the volume buttons, screen rotation lock switch, speakers, and headphone jack, and compatibility with Apple’s iPad Dock and iPad Keyboard Dock. Orbino’s Padova Case for the iPad is available for pre-order now in a variety of colors and materials; pricing starts at $209.

Hey Charles,

When a company says they use leather and “exotic animal skins” for a product, it really raises red flags about animal welfare. In the future would you please ask them to say where the skins come from and how th eanimals were treated? Otherwise it’s a creepy case.

Mike, I took a look at the website yesterday because I too was wondering just what “exotic” means.  No further info.

I definitely won’t be considering an Orbino case.  I’m not a member of PETA or even a vegetarian.  In fact, I own a fair number of leather goods.  But “exotic” is definitely a line I’m not crossing.

Really guys. Click the pre-order link. Crocodile and Ostrich are the exotic varieties. My question who is buying a $569 “exotic” case to but on a $499 device.

As we say down here in Texas…looks like a $50 saddle on a $20 horse.
