Although it’s only a simple sleeve case, the Basics in Style sleeve for the iPad mini is too elegant to truly be called “basic”. The Eccentric sleeve is “handmade in Italy by a small atelier in the heart of Italy” from vegetable-tanned calf leather. It is available only in the Cognac color for the exterior, but the suede interior is available in light blue, gray, brown, turquoise, or pink. The suede not only adds a pop of color, but it also protects the iPad mini. Basics in Style is a European company, but hopefully they will ship to the US. The Eccentric sleeve is available for € 69 ($89.33 US).
