Long Live Alfred

In appreciation for the way his Kindle revolutionised his reading habits, Liverpool-based leather artisan Robert Beaver decided to build it a good home. The result was the Long Live Alfred case, which uses hand-stitching to create a form that a machine could not create. The vegetable-tanned leather is designed to age and patinate over time and start to reflect the environment it resides in. While Long Live Alfred is currently only available for the Kindle, Robert hopes to create homes for other life-enhancing gadgets in the near future.
