    I loved my leather Smart Cover on 2 and iPad 3, but they don't make and maybe won't, I really like how leather wears,
    Is there anywhere I can buy real leather (I'm not looking for case with cover), just Smart Cover.

    There's a leatherette smart cover for the iPad Mini from Invellop here:

    I know leatherette isn't genuine leather, but I personally haven't been able to find anything else there. I hope this helps!

    The Kavaj Berlin is genuine leather:

    It's a little pricey but that's to be expected for real leather. It also comes in black: http://www.amazon.com/KAVAJ-leather-cover-Berlin-Apple/dp/B007IFVSDI/ref=pd_sim_sbs_pc_4

    Thanks, but I'm looking for Smart Cover only! Not case w. Smart Cover.
    I have BSE on the back and loved this combo on my iPad 2/3.

    I have the same back cover on my iPad mini and would like to find just a leather smart cover.

    I did order the KAVAJ "London" in black today. It's actually not a bad case to use for going to meetings. Sometimes I like to just take my iPad to a meeting and this would work well.

    Still would like to see some leather smart covers though. I'm hoping they'll eventually come out from third party manufacturers.

    No, this is not a smart cover but A smart case. The whole point being that we do not want a smart case. we're looking for something that simply covers the front. I am amazed that no one offers anything The only smart covers that are available are made out of polyurethane or what they call PU leather which still feels like rubber. There is got to be one case manufacturers out there with enough sense to know what people want. I have been searching for weeks and cannot find anything.

    Leather Smart Covers are a gold mine for Apple because they can charge $80 for a $3 strip of leather. So the fact that they don't have one might be because its impractical for THEM.

    I love my leather iPad Smart Cover, but after a year then my beige one started separating layers due to the glue wearing out and my wife's black one is all fringed at the edges. So, IMO, they just don't hold up well.

    Also, the Smart Cover design is brilliant for the bigger iPad but on the mini it's only 3 sections which makes it highly unstable as a stand and a bit annoying.

    Same here.. I took a red smart cover, dyed it brown and LOVE the way it looks on my iPad 2. I'm hoping someone comes out with something leather..
