Not Gecko, the other one And it's golden Gecko cover (I have it for Aura in blue/turquoise) is heavier than other slimfit covers.

I don't know. They look a lot like the €10 or so cover I've been using for my KPW1 for four years. I wouldn't be surprised if they are actually the same as some of the el-cheapo e-bay covers, but with their own brand name/stamp on it.

There are a lot of companies who do this. I've often seen covers in Dutch web stores that look exactly like the €5-10 China-made covers, but will cost €15-20. The only difference is the brand name stamped on the inside of the cover. Some of the more expensive ones have a logo worked into the front cover, but I wouldn't be surprised if you can just contact one of the manufacturers to have this done.

That's strange, the German Amazon version doesn't have this penholder thingy, but the English (and American) Amazon does.

I do like Gecko covers in general, good quality, but I really would prefer a slimfit...

Thank you for your message.

The luxe case for the Aura One will only be in the color black.
However there will be a slimfit cover for the Kobo Aura One and this will come in multiple colors.
I can not say when this will come out for sure.

If you have any furthermore questions please ask me.

If that Norève cover works like a auto-sleep slimfit cover without a clasp, then I think it's worth the money (if you don't go for the super expensive versions). You can personalize it, and it's real leather. The older Norève cover always had some sort of 'claws' to hold the reader, which I didn't like.

I'm going to look into this.

What does it look like in real life? The black one does have the frame but the red one looks like it has no frame and two magnets on the side on the photos. I didn't dare to buy one because I wasn't sure what I'd get.

Does your red cover have a frame or not?

Yes they do! And I already found a colour or two that I love.

Oh my! Looks like it will be a noodles-with-ketchup-month once again

I found the way to get these without my husband complaining:

Me: I found a very nice cover for my One. The most expensive is €155!
He: And the one you want is €170?
Me: No, only €60.

See, everything is better if you start high

Edit: I ordered it, ended up at €75, as I wanted a different inside colour... (and the colour I wanted was €65)
