This is for anyone on the fence about the new case… I’m sticking with leather.
Oh that tan leather should be nice! I went with Nomad’s leather folio, but Andar was on my list too.I ordered a finewoven case but will most likely return it. Hopefully a lot of people return them so Apple gets the message that they shouldn’t have done away with the leather cases. I also ordered andar camel tan leather so will probably just go with it.
If you took a knife to the leather case I bet it would look similar to the fine woven he tore up in that video. Are they worth $60? No, but they aren't that bad.
Will be interesting to see how this works out for Apple. I guess we will see in 1-2 years if this switch was a success. (Meaning, if they stick with this material)
Margins on cases are crazy high. It is not a business they want to go backwards.
This is my biggest problem, they dress this up as an environmentally friendly move, but leather won't shed microplastic fibres into the environment, which seems a far bigger problem to me than using a byproduct of meat production that's going to happen anyway.its just synthetic fiber
Nailed it! If leather was good for the P&L, they'd have a sleek video touting the benefits and twisting the reality to make you feel so good about the green washing all the way to the checkout!But but... they are carbon NEUTRAL, guys! Doesn't knowing that just give you the warm fuzzies and inspire you to
support Apple's shareholderssave the environment?
Mother Nature wants the environment to thrive, she wants to survive for billions of years more. She knows that a crap product like FW will only make people seek other alternatives that may endanger her. She is selfish, but wise.Your profile picture make me read every thing you say with Octavia's tone and expression. And I like that Mother Nature is not having it with FW ! 😂
