To make the case, Twelve South developed an entirely new technique for finishing leather that involves applying multiple layers of color, and then carefully removing selected elements by hand to reveal a brilliant tapestry of hues and patterns. Like a fingerprint, the resulting tones and patterns are completely unique to the natural variations of the leather itself.
The Rutledge envelopes your MacBook between two hardback covers with reinforced corners and a rigid spine. Dual zippers make it easy to charge your MacBook while it's safely inside the padded interior.
“We wanted to create a case that had the extraordinary colors of a sunburst guitar, or the deep sepia tones of a vintage film strip. What we came up with is this amazing new finish that is modern, yet retro at the same time,” said Andrew Green, Creative Director of Twelve South. “If you’re looking for something very special and unique to protect your beautiful MacBook, you won’t find anything else quite like this.”
Notably, since the 13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina Display has a footprint 7% smaller than the 13-inch MacBook Air, Twelve South has created a size just for this model.
