Sleek and sustainable gift ideas for Father’s Day 2013: Case Closed tech accessories made out of felt
Sunday June 16th is Father’s Day. What will your gift be this year? Will it be the usual tie or wallet? Will dad get another cologne, coffee mug, watch, pair of socks or set of BBQ utensils?
If the father you are shopping for is technologically up-to-date, with a sleek, elegant taste and conscious of sustainability issues and the environment, then Case Closed tech accessories may very well be the optimal and most satisfying gift solution.
The company has been designing and making their products for the past 5 years and the sleeves can be used for Google Nexus, iPads, iPhones, Kindles, and Macbooks. They are all made out of felt; some have finishing touches in Ultrasuede.
The 3 mm felt fabric is made in Germany from 100% pure wool without added synthetics or plastics. Felt is soft to the touch, extremely durable and easy to care for.
The Ultrasuede fabric, a relatively recent invention by Toray Industries, uses recycled materials. Case Closed explains that it is thanks to a very sophisticated process, developed by Dr. Miyoshi Okamoto and perfected by Dr. Toyohiko Hikota, which means the initial polymer ultra-microfibers are transformed into “a richly complex non-woven fabric.” Ultrasuede offers an “unparalleled combination of luxury, appeal, performance and ease of care.”
The purchase is directly made with the makers thus allowing for great flexibility in custom orders and personalized items. All packaging is recycled or biodegradable.
