Griffin has just announced the availability of Papernomad Tootsie Folio for iPad and iPad mini. The new folio’s exterior is made from water-resistant and tear-resistant paper. It is both unbelievably durable, and the perfect blank canvas for artistic creativity.
Austria-based Papernomad is a group of socially conscious artists whose customizable and durable case designs meet the needs of modern nomads: identity, mobility and sustainability. Papernomad’s passion is to question existing systems and design sustainable solutions with respect to social and environmental issues. Nashville-based Griffin Technology fell in love with Papernomad’s philosophy as well as their products and is proud to serve as exclusive distributor of Papernomad products in North America.
“We’ve really enjoyed working with the Papernomad team to develop a case adapted for North American customer’s preferences,” says Keavy Murphree, Product Line Manager at Griffin Technology. “Papernomad brought a solution to the table that delighted us all, one unlike any case we’d ever seen in the folio market. Tootsie’s unique magnetic system combined with Papernomad’s patented paper composite make it the ideal solution for creative people seeking device protection.”
Papernomad products are meant to be drawn on, marked on, and written on with crayons, ink, coffee stains, lipstick, pencils and everything people use to make their mark on the world. This collection of marks and traces turns every Papernomad into a unique companion that tells its owner’s story. Tootsie for iPad is not only a work of art, it is designed to protect the iPad with minimum impact on the environment.
Tootsie Folio is created with Papernomad’s patented paper composite, a wool blend lining and a natural hemp fiber closure-strap, all sewn by hand in Europe. Embedded magnets in the strap hold the folio closed or folded into a stand for viewing and typing. A magnetic strip on the interior of the folio grips the iPad’s built-in magnet and works with two corner straps to hold the iPad securely in place.
Each product in the Papernomad collection is named after places where significant progress on them was made. The new iPad folio is named after Tootsie’s Orchid Lounge, a world-famous watering hole in the heart of downtown Nashville. Tootsie’s cold beer and live music left such an impression on Papernomad’s creators, they’ve commemorated it in the name of their new folios.
Tootsie Folio for iPad, $69.99, and iPad mini, $59.99, are now available. For more information about Griffin’s offering of Papernomad products, please visit: www.griffintechnology.com/papernomad.
