It doesn't always take a big brand name to come up with cool new iPad accessories. This week, Pure Mobile came across an ingenious waterproof iPad case designed by two Estonian students using recycled fire-hose as the primary material.
Working on the idea that "it’s rather silly that perfectly good material is wasted when firehoses reach their standard time of use," Ivar Arulaid and Lee Sakk started Hoswear, a line of accessories, from phone sleeves and iPad or laptop cases to messenger bags, totes and clutches, all made from recycled hoses.
It's a clever way to go about making a waterproof iPad bag or sleeve, and the look is just as cool.
Available in yellow, red, or white, and often including bits of text from the up-cycled hoses, Hosewear's iPad sleeves have a modern, industrial look that's just as appealing to women as to men. And of course, they'll keep your iPad dry, all while being friendly to the environment.
There's really nothing too complicated about Hosewear's product line. Their bags and cases for the most part have a pretty standard shape. But the small company has definitely distinguished itself by cleverly reusing a really effective and unique material that still has quite a lot of life left in it.
The result is a fairly waterproof and totally cool iPad cover that's sure to stand out from the rest.
