I want a case with this specific design. I had the Melkco Slimme (shown) but my iPad 2 was recently stolen with the case. I am buying another iPad and case to replace it. Melkco takes ages to ship from China, and their US reseller doesn't have the color I want. Plus they are expensive.

Any other OEMs making a near identical case design in quality leather?

No their case covers the bezel and doesn't have a magnetic close (i.e. case falls open.

The case I am showing above has a magnetic close (magnets hold case shut) and has open bezel (no point buying a white iPad and covering the bezel).

Their magic case doesn't cover the bezel but it does has a clasp to keep the case closed instead of magnets. (It does support the sleep/wake feature though.

you could come damn close with a dodocase leather back and leather smartcover...
Good idea, but wouldn't that be more expensive?

The magic case is similar to the Toblino case. I don't like that design because you have to pop the iPad out of two of the corners to stand it up. I don't like constantly popping the corners.

I just ordered this, which looks close to what you're showing:

I ordered mine in denim, because I like the look with a white iPad, and it should have some grip to it, but they have models in leather also. Mine is shipping from China, so it may be a while till I get it. They had a 40% discount over the Black Friday weekend.

Here's a YouTube review:

Fantastic. This case at 40% off is exactly what I'm looking for.
