First Look: Noreve Tradition Leather Cases for iPad, iPhone 4 + iPod touch 4G

Updated

As the latest fine leather cases from France’s Noreve, the Tradition series continues the company’s… tradition of modestly updating prior designs for new Apple devices. The iPad Tradition Leather Case ($84-$97) is a folio-style design that uses embossed leather-covered plastic to hold an iPad on its interior right side, while the left side has a flap with a magnetic tab to hold the case closed. Inside the flap are two paper-sorting pockets, four card-sized slots, and a seam that helps the lid double back as a second flap on the rear opens to become a video viewing stand. Twenty-two color and texture options are available; the black patent leather version shown here is sold at the more expensive price point. By comparison, Noreve’s Tradition Leather Case for iPhone 4 ($55-$68) is a flip-style case with a front flap that hangs off of its bottom when open, using a plastic tab to stay closed. It comes in 22 colors as well, each with an optional plastic belt clip that attaches with a metal screw and nub system; the version shown here is a $62 variation with upgraded leather. Finally, there’s Tradition C ($46-$59), a simple leather sleeve with an optional rear belt clip; the “Jean Vintage” version here uses a soft suede and sells for the higher price. Updated: In January 2011, Noreve sent updated versions of its cases for the iPod touch 4G as well, shown at the bottom.
