Proporta’s Head of Product, Lynnette Prigmore, explained more about dealing with such an announcement: “We’re sure that the new iPad mini is going to be on most people’s Christmas lists and being the busiest period in the retail calendar, we anticipate a high attachment rate on accessories. With any new Apple model it’s a race against the clock for accessories manufacturers such as ourselves, and the timing of the iPad mini will definitely see us wanting to have cases and screen protectors in stores as soon as possible. Fortunately many of our current lines are compatible with the new iPad mini and these will be live on our website first thing, with more designs to follow in the coming weeks.”

You can find iPad mini cases now at Proporta.

    I really like the handcrafted kindle leather cases. Will you be producing something similar for the mini ipad?

    Hi Paul, thanks for your comment. We’re pleased you like our leather Kindle covers. At the moment we don’t have leather cases for the iPad mini, but we do have some faux-leather options which are very high quality. In fact, many people say they can’t tell the difference. You can find these here http://www.proporta.com/cat/apple-ipad-mini I hope this helps. Do let us know if there’s anything else we can help with.
