Griffin Technology collaborated with Papernomad to make a unique paper case for iOS and Mac devices that folks can doodle on.
The European-made cases—which look strikingly similar to the leather Snugg line— feature patent-pending, water- and tear-resistant paper that is also organic and compostable. The materials used range from viscose fiber and biopolymer to hemp and wool.
“The paper used is made from sustainably forested trees and FSC Forest Stewardship Council certified,” said Griffin in a press release. “All other materials used are compostable and organic, such as the cotton stitching, hemp pull strap, and signature wool lining provided by happy sheep from New Zealand.”
Griffin said the line would be available “soon” for iPad, iPad mini, iPhone 4, iPhone 5, MacBook Air 11- and 13-inch, and MacBook Pro 13- and 15-inch for between $39.99 and $69.99 USD. Even the Samsung Galaxy S III is getting a sleeve.

Designed and made by Papernomad; offered exclusively by Griffin Technology
Nashville, Tenn. – January 24, 2013 – Griffin Technology, one of the world’s foremost creators of innovations for everyday life, announced the exclusive distribution rights of Papernomad® products in North America. Austria-based Papernomad develops organic, customizable, tear- and water-resistant sleeves for iPhone, iPad, iPad mini, MacBook and Galaxy S III. And, because they are made of a specially-engineered paper material, they provide the perfect canvas for personal expression and creativity.
“We are thrilled to bring Papernomad to North America; their products leave a lasting impression on people’s minds but not on the environment,” says Keavy Murphree, Product Line Manager at Griffin Technology. “With Papernomad, we offer users a sustainable way to guard their technology, as well as a canvas that allows individuals to express their imagination.”
“At Papernomad we pride ourselves in designing products that enable consumers to express their individuality while protecting their mobile device,” says Dr. Benjamin Kwitek, Co-Founder and Director of Papernomad’s US branch. “We’re excited to have Griffin on board to bring our environmentally-friendly products to North America.”
Each sleeve is made in Europe of an advanced patent-pending composite of paper, viscose fiber and biopolymer. The paper used is made from sustainably forested trees and FSC Forest Stewardship Council certified. All other materials used are compostable and organic, such as the cotton stitching, hemp pull strap, and signature wool lining provided by happy sheep from New Zealand.
Besides their environmentally conscious mission, what sets Papernomad products apart is their capacity for creative expression. Not only is the sleeve designed to look good, it can be marked with pencils, pens, and crayons, for the ultimate personalization, making each case as unique as its owner. Papernomad sleeves allow users to capture life experiences as quick scribbles, incorporating coffee stains, telephone numbers or the occasional lipstick impression.
Papernomad sleeves will be available soon for iPad, iPad mini, iPhone 4 & 5, MacBook Air (11″ & 13″), MacBook Pro (13″ and 15″) and Samsung Galaxy S III for $39.99 – $69.99 at http://www.GriffinTechnology.com
