Kimono iPod cases
MacWay today began offering Kimono cases by Miyavix, enclosures for various iPod models that are hand made in Kyoto, Japan. The cases are made from kimono fabric, and are available in a variety of colors. Areas of the case surrounding the screen, clickwheel (when applicable), and ports are finished in leather and offer unhindered functional access. Kimono cases come in various styles and fit fifth- (€45, "violet" style shown at right) and fourth-generation (€40) iPods, iPod nano (€40), iPod mini (€40), and iPod shuffle (€40) models. Each case is unique in design, and ships with a metal ring that can be attached to a bag, belt, keychain, or lanyard.
