On my quest to find an awesome iPad 2 case, I have discovered that the spirit of entrepreneurship and craftsmanship are still alive here in the USA. The guys at grove, who are based in Portland, OR, do absolutely amazing work, and ultimately, I gave them my business. However, I wouldn’t want to sell short companies like Blackbox, who are located in Golden, Colorado; or Rustic Case, which is in Templeton, MA.
I went through dozens and dozens of case options before picking grove’s, and I know it’ll be worth the wait to get it. The best part of the search, though, was finding that the most beautiful, elegant, innovative products were designed and hand-built by happy workers, with genuine quality and safe materials, by companies right here at home.
