Pad and Quill Blog on iPad Cases, iPhone Cases and Technology
It’s a gray, chilly day here in Pad & Quill land. Ice is forming at the edges of lakes and solidifying ponds, encouraging the remaining waterfowl to sequester and follow the gray-haired snow birds south. It’s a chill that defies overcoats ands sweaters, and immobilizes hands. It also invigorates double coated dogs, and so I found myself at the local dog park with Bear the psuedofox. It’s my forty minutes of solitude away from iPhones and Aria’s, spreadsheets and ledgers. It’s his forty minutes to be all canine, racing and romping with any of a dozen other friends, sans the restraints of a leash. It’s a thing of beauty fashioned by nature. Then nature collides with reason when frozen hands and the office beckon and the mutt decides to become the official greeter for each dog entering the park.
Designing new products is somewhat akin to the dog park experience, whereby “twenty” minutes of poor quality control can become the bane of “forty” minutes of design and craftsmanship. With the design process of our new line of bags we sought to marry the best of natural beauty with the precision of excellent craftsmanship, because we know luxurious leather can travel miles upon miles so long as it’s stitched together with parachute grade nylon and the integrity of seamsters that have generations of sewing in their families. Quality such as this ages like dog years, in reverse. We thoughtfully designed each bag to neatly hold power cords, writing implements, files and of course your trusty Apple device.
Our bags are imbedded with personality from the inside, where burnt orange brings a splash of color and illuminating functionality (in other words, you can find your stuff at the bottom because it doesn’t disappear into mirky blackness), out, where our signature bookmark is discreetly incorporated. If you’re looking to invest in a bag that will travel like a trusty companion, that won’t break down just as you’ve begun to delight in it’s artistry, then we invite you to try the new Pad & Quill Messenger, Field and Satchel bag.

For many people in the United States, winter is quickly descending as the mercury keeps dropping everyday. But along with keeping yourself bundled up and warm, make sure to keep your Apple gear safe from the freezing once the thermometer starts to hit 32F.
Most people think an iPhone and its leather case is good for one thing: to co-exist. But explore the technicalities of it, and you've suddenly got a device that can do so much more.
Well not exactly, Kari decided awhile back that four quills is enough for this full house. Let’s just say it would be completely miraculous if we had #5 on the way… I’ll leave that there. What I mean is that one of our most popular iPad cases just had a baby brother.
-Yes this is occasion for multiple propping celebrations!
-iPad mini users, time to bask in the glow of practical goodness!
-It’s a ‘mini’ celebration of function and beauty!
I’m going to stop now.
You might ask why didn’t we do this last year? Good question, that’s why I had you hypothetically pose it. Two reasons. First, we were swamped! Seriously the growth of our iPhone cases was so huge that we could barely keep up with the newly announced iPad mini. The second reason was design. We wanted to make the design of our new Contega for the iPad Air and iPad mini Retina to be as slender and strong as possible. This one has adopted those new design features from it’s bigger brother. Couple Highlights:
-Strongest wood frame to date
-Thinner design then previous Contega’s
-More durable leather/cloth materials
So welcome our baby brother case to the family. We are very proud parents here at Pad & Quill!
