INKAcases [2] are sustainable laptop sleeves that are made in the remote Andean highlands of Peru and have multiple social and environmental benefits. The production of INKAcases provides impoverished artisans a way to continue traditional weaving and significantly increase their income. Our weavers use natural plant dyes and alpaca and sheep wool. These laptop sleeves also preserve culture knowledge by using local iconography and patterns.
