One of our favorite parts of traveling abroad is finding unique accessories and home décor to bring back home. Yes, yes, the sights and sounds are all beautiful, but bringing home an unlocked cell phone from Korea or discovering Japan's next Domokun is just as exciting. So you can imagine our delight when we discovered Incase's limited edition line of localized laptop sleeves and iPod cases.
For key Apple store openings, Incase designs a store specific line of Mac accessories. The limited edition collection is then only available at that store. Sure it's a bummer these fabulous designs aren't available for all, but then traveling abroad wouldn't be as rewarding.
