The Review | Mujjo iPad Mini Sleeve

The Review | Mujjo iPad Mini Sleeve

From the Netherlands comes Mujjo, a brand known for crafting minimalistic yet functional products. In 2012, Mujjo first began developing sleeves for Apple devices such as the iPhone, iPad, MacBook Air as well as the MacBook Pro. The brand’s The Originals collection features a unique combination of wool felt and high quality leather, and they recently added an iPad Mini Sleeve that fits seamlessly into Mujjo’s current product lineup. The folks over at Mujjo were kind enough to send us an iPad Mini sleeve for review and we’ve been quite impressed by its detailing and overall craftsmanship. It’s easy to carry and has a little extra space in a separate compartment that can fit your headphones, some folded documents or even a MiFi. The wool felt contrasts really well with the vegetable tanned leather and we can already tell the leather with age to perfection. The felt can be easily cleaned as a special treatment provides excellent anti-peeling properties and makes the sleeve water repellent. Aesthetically, it may be the best looking iPad Mini sleeve on the market and its ability to blend so well with the iPad Mini’s slim design is what makes it such a great accessory.

Mujjo’s iPad Mini Sleeve is available now in either brown or white leather.
