About this project
What is Gamuza?
The Gamuza is plush Ultraseude® protection for the most sought after Apple products. The sensuous feel of the Gamuza is available for the MacBook Pro 13" and 15" wrist pad, the iPad 3 back, and as a back for the iPhone 4/4s. It will also be available for the iPhone 5.
The idea behind the Gamuza
My idea for creating the Gamuza came from years of looking for suitable protection for my Macbook's palm rest from watch scratches, while also trying to add a little comfort along the way. Everything from stickers to gel filled pads just didn't cut it.
The Design Process
When we sat down to design the Gamuza a few things came to mind. Our product had to be affordable, beautiful, durable and protect, while at the same time be super soft and environmentally friendly. So, the material we chose was Ultrasuede®.
Material and Construction
Ultrasuede® combines the rich aesthetics of a suede-like surface with the benefits no animal product could ever offer. Ultrasuede® is soft, supple and sensuous to the touch, yet it's also resistant to stains and discoloration. Gamuza applies cleanly with a repositionable, reusable, patent-pending adhesive, and its removal is just as clean and simple as its installation.
For years, Ultrasuede® has brought unparalleled luxury, appeal, performance and its ease of care to the fashion, automobile and the interior design industry. Now we're bringing it to the portable electronics industry. The Gamuza is assembled and manufactured in the United States and we are looking for a late fall release for our product.

Why we need help?
Okay so this is where I need your help, Kickstarter. I need your funding so I can take our product from the design and prototyping stage to the production stage. Our funding goal of $10,000 is calculated to be just enough to pay for the press, the dies and the materials for the first production run, as well as packaging costs. I would also love to hear from you, as a project funder, for creative ideas that can further my project. All I need is your help to make this dream a reality!
Once the Gamuza funding is successful, we will:
- Place order for the Clicker Press and dies; this will take approximately 3 weeks
Week 2 thru 4:
- Place order for materials and packaging
- Move into full production of the Gamuza
- Package orders and ready them for shipment.
BIG Thanks to Aleksander Grinnbo Høyum for pledging $2040 to Gamuza!
Yes! The iPad 3 camera is slightly bigger than the iPad 2, however the overall size is still the same. The Gamuza will fit the iPad 2 with only a small ring showing around the camera on the iPad 2.
Yes! If you back a iPad 3 and want to change that to an iPad Mini when it become available that is not a problem. We plan to full support the iPad Mini.
