About this project

We appreciate everyone that takes an interest in our project.


What exactly is a Rustic Case?

Rustic Case is a line of sleeve cases that are handmade in New England. We make them using 80% wool/ 20% polyester blend for extra durability. We hand select and buy the material from a small shop in Massachusetts that has been in business since 1905. We add 100% genuine leather accent pieces for an elegant touch with our company name branded into each piece. We've found small workshops all over New England that will supply us with all the materials needed to make these high quality, hand made products.

The devices we chose to start making these cases for are the Apple iPad and Amazon Kindle 3. We absolutely love the feel of these devices "Naked" (without a plastic case installed). This is why we designed our Rustic Cases to fit only these devices while they are naked. We feel if you add a case you are ruining the feel and slender appeal of these devices. And if you really think about it, when are you going to need a protective case for your Kindle or iPad? You're never working out or moving around with them so a sleeve like the Rustic Case is perfect and makes the most sense. With the classy look and feel of Rustic Case it is the perfect companion for your iPad or Kindle.

Our workshop

As of now, our company is solely a family run operation. My family has been making handmade crafts for as long as I can remember and I feel what better way to express and fulfill our desire for preserving the art of hand made products than to launch a line of high quality, handmade cases for our favorite devices. Thus the Rustic Case was born.

What we need the funding for

We came to kickstarter for crowd sourced funding mainly because the cost of materials are extremely high. Not to mention the specialty sewing machines and the time needed to craft these cases. With our goal of $5,000.00, this will fund all our material costs and production costs for our Rustic Cases. Since we personally hand make all of these cases we will need all the help we can get to supply everyone with their personal Rustic Case.

We hope we touched home with everyone and we want to personally thank you for helping us! With the support of everyone at kickstarter we can make this project a reality.
