Must Have

Works as it should be and beautiful design! #musthave

Unfortunately Poor Quality

When new, I loved the fit and feel of this case. However, the original started fraying within a few weeks, and the replacement is not faring any better. I hate to give a bad review since the company and the iPad protector are just great. The folio case just does not have the longevity it should, considering the price.

Hi Scott, sorry to hear you’re unhappy with Paperlike's Folio Case! We’d love to help with the fraying of the case. Our Support team will be reaching out to you shortly!
