Leather cases for 5G, Nano
Tunewear today unveiled its PRIE Moccasin and PRIE Rawhide series of genuine leather cases for Apple's fifth-generation iPod and iPod nano. The PRIE Moccasin consists of a colorful assortment of five compact cases made from smooth vachetta leather, or napa leather materials that soften and mellow with age. Each case includes a hand strap that matches the color and design of the case, as well as a removable metal hook for easy detachment from the case. The flip cover design protects the portable player against scratches, while the interior of each case consists of soft felt to offer additional scratch prevention. The cases come with a transparent TuneFilm cover to guard the delicate screen and clickwheel, and the fifth-generation model offers space inside the cover to hold personal items. PRIE Moccasin and PRIE Rawhide are slated for shipment this month for $30 each.
The PRIE Rawhide series of cases consists of five compact leather cases -- also designed for Apple's fifth-generation iPod and iPod nano -- available in either black or brown colors with distinctive eyelets and stitch designs. Each case includes a built-in belt clip and is designed with a flip cover to protect the iPod against scratches.
A magnet ensures the case stays shut when worn, and the interior is made from a smooth felt material to further guard against scratching. PRIE Rawhide cases also ship with TuneFilm covers, and provide space inside for personal items such as credit cards.
Both the PRIE Moccasin and PRIE Rawhide cases feature an access hole on the bottom of each case to ease the process of syncing and charging the iPod without removing it from the protective case.
