I’m pretty sure everyone likes the words “affordable luxury,” but when a $500 bag is pegged as “affordable” we laugh it off. I’m here to tell you about a truly affordable line of luxe tech accessories made from the most impressive list of sustainable materials. Reveal, designer of covetable covers for tablets and phones, lives by four principles reflected in their logo with 4 R’s: reveal a sustainable way to design products, reveal the power of technology, reveal organizations that are making a difference, and reveal the beauty in nature and world cultures.
I’d say they have done all that and more spectacularly well. Utilizing recycled plastic bottles to create a sumptuous vegan suede, organically grown linen free of chemicals, recycled polyester tape and recycled metal sliders for zippers and planting a tree for each item sold in their Nature Tech line (all coming in below the $150 price point) their status is officially sustainable and attainable.
Nearly every type of techie can find an accessory that jives with their aesthetic, from girlie to minimalistic to sporty.
iPhone and iPad cases crafted from bamboo, wood, and cork are a great vehicle to show off your inner tree-hugger, while other tablet cases/makeshift purses boast shiny vegan patent leather, eco-satin interiors and chain straps ideal for ditching the device at the workplace and heading straight to a nice dinner.
Said best by Reveal, their products are where “tech meets sexy.” Indeed.
The Audrey Tablet Purse comes in a rainbow of eye-popping hues like pink, blue and this lovely lilac.
The Ashlee iPad Purse in natural linen would be for Coco Chanel’s environmentally-conscious offspring. (If she had any kids, that is.)
Tell your haters on Twitter they’re barking up the wrong tree by encasing your beloved iPhone in Reveal’s Zen Garden Wooden iPhone Case for 5/5S.
Whether you’re hitting the books, angry birds or just your stride, the Turin Backpack made with fleece from recycled plastic bottles has your back.
Kindle owners shouldn’t feel left out- that’s why the Becca Kindle Wallet is so fabulous. Stash your Kindle, iPad mini or smartphone in this appropriately sized zip-around shiny wallet. With a place for your chosen device, credit cards, change and cash- traveling light has never been chicer.
