Twelve South has just introduced another option in its popular BookBook case line for MacBook users. The standout feature of the new Rutledge edition is its unique leather exterior. Thanks to a new coloring technique that applies multiple layers of color and then removes selected elements, each cover offers a slightly different finish that highlights the natural grain of the leather. And beyond the exterior, two hardback covers with reinforced corners and a rigid spine help protect a MacBook from impact and drops. The padded interior also helps to cushion the machine. Its dual-zipper system allows users to charge their laptop while still keeping their MacBook safe.
“We wanted to create a case that had the extraordinary colors of a sunburst guitar, or the deep sepia tones of a vintage film strip. What we came up with is this amazing new finish that is modern, yet retro at the same time,” said Andrew Green, Creative Director of Twelve South. “If you’re looking for something very special and unique to protect your beautiful MacBook, you won’t find anything else quite like this.”Available for the MacBook Air, MacBook Pro, and MacBook Pro with Retina Display, the Rutledge can be ordered directly from Twelve South’s site now for $99.99. While it might be a little expensive, Twelve South does a spectacular job designing high-quality accessories, and this new case looks to easily continue that trend.
