Two minutes after unwrapping my new Kindle I started to think about dressing it up. Preferably in couture, which to me means handmade and/or custom made, not necessarily name brand. The destination was clear: Etsy.
The choices for e-Readers sleeves, cozies and cases on Etsy are so many one can spend hours browsing unable to decide. Some are sleek, others are adorably homespun; materials range from recycled wool, upcycled oilcloth to leather. There are hand-knitted options, appliqued, felted and hand-stitched. Prints go from the ubiquitous retro owls to the tackiest and funniest Star-War characters. When buying make sure you order a case that fits your gadget's model as they vary slightly. I went with the one you see above: Personalized leather case with peacocks ($46, TinderBloom).
Here are a few of the other items that caught my eye:
Herrigbone pattern, navy & cream ($22, Echoshop).
Octopus & Seahorse ereader sleeve ($15, Pogtotes).
Faux Croc Kindle Fire cover ($39, GardenourLeather).
Oilcloth Dots (22GBP, ArrooDesigns).
Red Knit Kindle Sleeve ($20, haramis).
Red & Cream Toile Kindle Cover ($20, JonahDay).
Recycled Padded eReader Cover ($10, CitrusSister).
Leather Kindle Sleeve ($95, NomadUnlimited).
