These days, it seems as though everywhere we look there are new iPad cases popping up, but who were the first to give these gadgets a proper cover? That would be James and Monica from Hard Graft.
The duo started stitching together a collection of cases, bags, and wallets, made of 100% leather and felt back in 2006. "For three years we have produced almost every single hard graft product ourselves, just two people, cutting, sewing and shipping," the two explained. But eventually, the demand of their hand crafted products became too high for them to do on their own. After much searching, they found an authentic workshop in Italy to produce their collections. "They wanted to make sure that each Hard Graft product showed an impeccable old-world craftsmanship and timeless appeal." We love the authentic look and sturdy feel of the Hard Graft products, as well as the spirit behind the name. "Our brand name is an old and often used english term meaning real hard work," noted James and Monica "when we started we knew it would take real honest hard graft to make it work, so here we are."
