Product Details

"The Rolls Royce of iPad cases." – Eli M.,Cult of Mac.com

Crafted locally at our book bindery in St. Paul, the Contega offers both artistry and beauty. However, the aspect that shines brightest is the engineering. An ingenious multi-channel positioning system allows you to prop the Contega in all sorts of useful ways.

I searched long and hard before stumbling upon a review extolling the virtues of Pad & Quill (who?) products. Unfortunately, Pad & Quill are not well known in the UK, however, don't let this deter you from giving their products a try.

The Cortega case provides excellent protection and can be used in multiple positions with ease. The charger socket, headphone jack and volume controls are all easily accessible, unlike some of the competition.

Although costing more than most of its rivals, the Cortega case appears built to last. The varnished birch frame is a nice touch.

I managed to secure a 10% discount which sweetened the deal, while the speed of delivery (3 days) to the UK was nothing short of stunning.

Only time will tell how long the elastic lasts before perishing, however, this shouldn't cost much to replace.

I love the Contega Case for iPad Air. I'm always receiving compliments on this. The product seems extremely well made and the attention to detail is magnificent. The power button works flawlessly and the case seems like it would protect well in case of a fall.

My only issues are the bookmark ribbon and the elastic band. I can't tell where the ribbon to help remove the ipad is supposed to go. Some photos in the product details show it coming out of the top where the audio jack is. Others show it coming out the bottom where the lightning connector is. I'm not thrilled with either location but which one is preferred?
The other issue I have is what to do with the elastic band when the case is folded in half. It tends to always stick out and be in the way until I intentionally tuck it back inside. I'm not sure if there is a good solution to this.

I love the product though and will surely buy from Pad & Quill again. (Posted on 4/14/14)

I was delighted when I received my iPad Air Contega case. The craftsmanship is really outstanding. It is a bit heavier than I would have liked, but this case is all about style, substance, and protection. When you consider it is only a little more than the plastic OtterBox cases, and just as protective of your device, this is a good value. My only wish: genuine leather on the outer skin!

I received the Contega case for my iPad air as a birthday present. It the second P&Q case I have owned and for good reason. Insanely high quality wood and binding, easy to use, and actually protects the iPad from drops. While being built well, it also looks amazing. I often receive complements on the case and I am more than happy to tell people about this awesome company. If you care thinking of buying it, just do it.

At $100 it is not a cheap case, but keep in mind, these things last a long time. I still have my original P&Q case for the first gen iPad. Even after 3.5 years it looks great. It is not cheap, but it is well worth the money.

Had one for 2 years. Saved device several times. Always a great aesthetic. Looks like a good diary when on the go, not a $1000 kit. I agree with 'the RR of cases'. (Posted on 1/16/14)

With my iPad 2 I had four different cases, this is by far my favorite. It is beautiful, compact, and classy. (Posted on 1/5/14)

A beautiful I Pad Air case.
The build is simple: leather, wood and cloth, hand bound by craftsman.
The function is ingenious, the variables to fold and stand are invisible and unobtrusive until you need them, then they are in place seamlessly and work perfectly.
Kudos to the staff as well, great on the suggestions and delivery.
For the discriminating consumer.

Even though this case adds a considerable amount of weight and increases the size of the ipad air the look and feel of the case is like any other. Anyone who sees it automatically notices and compliments it. Really does look as if the ipad is secure and safe in there and looks as if you are carrying around a regular book. (Posted on 12/10/13)

Very good sturdy case. Fits my iPad Air very well. Well designed. I'm very happy with it. My only slight disappointment is the wood cut at the charging and headphone openings are are jagged and not smooth like the rest of the design. Poor craftsmanship there. (Posted on 11/25/13)

This case is perfect. I actually was looking for a case with a book like feel and look. This fit the bill but added quality features like the multichannel positioning and sound channels of which is one of my favorite. Thank you Pad&Quill! (Posted on 11/23/13)

I just received my new cover and I just LOVE it!! It looks great, works great, and smells (wood and leather) wonderful as well. This is a quality product and I am going to recommend it to all my family and friends who have iPads or anything else that deserves a beautiful case. Thanks for an extraordinary product!
