Great iPad Cover Find!



I received an Abas zippered folio cover to review for my blog. The post went up today with lots of photos. I have only found one mention of this company on here, which surprises me. They offer beautifully made covers and in a variety of colors (don't worry they have black too) and some really unique styles. Love this cover!

They also have black (as noted in post), orange, yellow, green and red and I think you can get it in brown though it may be sold out right now. Choices! How refreshing.

Well, it is very pretty, but $135? I don't think so. Love your blog BTW

I understand it is not cheap but it is very high quality and I have spent as much or more on wallets or purses. I also Have seen people on other boards spending more on covers, so IMO it is worth it.

maybe you can tell us why you like it? what features does it have? what cases have you compared it to? durability? what makes it worth the high price?

Wow! My last purse was $12 but then it isn't leather either. My iPad cover is from Griffin and cost $48. it also has business card slots and the inner flap, not hot pink though! Thanks for your post.

BTW, I've seen a pink Hummer today at a gas station. A friend of mine was impressed by the blonde driving it. He's color blind, but has no problem spotting the blondes.

No it's not. It's *very* pink. It's the Platonic ideal of pinkness. My infinitely better half would swoon over such pinkitude. But she hasn't got an iPad. Yet.

Before WWII, pink would have been considered very masculine (there were even pink Spitfires... although that was for camouflage). It was like a "young red", with its fiery, bloody, aggressive undertones. Back then, blue was the dainty, delicate, feminine colour!

Excuse me, but what are you saying about all those brave young RAF boys and their blue uniforms? I think we should be told.
