Share Article

Just in time for graduation, English Retreads turns recycling into a bold fashion statement with the iPad Sleeve. Made from upcycled inner tubes and recycled PET material, it's as stylish as it is sustainable.

English Retreads, an eco-fashion handbag and accessories company out of Boulder, CO, is announcing the debut of their iPad Sleeve handcrafted from recycled material. This new accessory expands a growing line of vegan totes, computer bags, wallets, and belts which combine to make a high-impact fashion statement with a low impact on the environment.

The iPad Sleeve accommodates all versions of the iPad. Reclaimed truck and tractor inner tubes are given a new life as the protective material for the sleeve while colorful, recycled PET material lines the inside of the padded sleeve. It is the perfect graduation gift.

Some deductive reasoning: Keeping modern technology safe and secure is an important and sometimes trying job, which can drive one crazy. Therefore, with the English Retreads iPad Sleeve life will be better due to a lack of insanity. Think about the headaches, heartaches, and lost money incurred when dropping an unprotected iPad in a puddle and have to have it repaired or even buy a new one. Problem solved with the new English Retreads iPad Sleeve.

“We recognize the opportunity to integrate fashion and environmental consciousness on behalf of the consumer's need for stylish and sophisticated accessories,” said Heather English, English Retreads’ Founder and Designer, “With the release of the iPad Sleeve we are excited to lead the market in innovative, repurposed material use, while simultaneously delivering on functionality with a fashion forward style all our own.”

About English Retreads: In 2001 Heather English had a predicament; she was searching for a new vegan handbag that was stylish and eco-friendly – a lofty request at the time. While some people get their best ideas in the shower, Heather got hers while floating down Boulder Creek on an inner tube. “It occurred to me that this inner tube could be made into the handbag I’d been dreaming of.” English Retreads hit the road in 2002.
