Nature and technology go together like toast and butter, especially when the combination yields beautiful covers for your smart phone, iPad, or Macbook Pro.
But trust us: this Toast is anything but plain.
Toast, Inc. is a Portland, Oregon company using 100% renewable energy to make cool, unusual covers for your gadgets. Whether you have an iPhone, a Samsung GalaxyS4, an Android, an iPad, an iPad Mini, or a Macbook Pro, they have lovely real wood covers to protect and enhance your favorite tech.
Each cover is a marvel of engineering that wraps your gadget in 100% real wood veneers with fun designs from their library–or a custom design of your own for a little more. There are four woods available with designs to suit every taste, and you can even customize your cover with text. I tried a Toast cover in Bamboo for my iPad mini, and I really love the look of the clean wood wrap-around. All the speakers, ports, and cameras have cut-outs, and the feel of the device is lovely.
Keep in mind, you need to be super careful removing your Toast cover from the packaging, as it is a very thin, real wood veneer with sticky tape on the back. I accidentally tore a corner on mine before I understood how fragile it is, but once I stuck it back on, it’s impossible to see my goof.
Although these covers provide some protection, they’re not Otterboxes, so you wouldn’t want to hand your iPad to a toddler over a marble floor (but when would do that, uh, ever?). Rather, Toast covers are the sort of thing you would pull out on a plane or at a business meeting and receive lots of oohs and ahs.
Just know that Toast covers are a one-time deal. Once you’re ready to change it, you’ll pop off the cover and toss it. So choose your Toast wisely. –Delilah
