Bamboo covers for computers are still getting a lot of mileage. As one of the most sustainable materials for woodworking, bamboo is also just plain pretty -- especially when it comes to a stylish way to protect your laptop. Checkout this gorgeous case made specifically for Macbooks.
Silva Ltd has a custom-made case for the 13" and 15" Macbooks. It is lined with wool felt to keep your computer safe from scratches, and has a leather strap. While that adds a nice look to the case, you might be able to convince the makers to use a vegan option instead, since the cases are made by hand by creator Justin Silva.
The cases are light -- only about two pounds -- and are likely quite sturdy since they're made from solid wood. But they aren't cheap. The quality is reflected in the price as these sell for $179.99. But if you take care of it, it'll last far, far longer than the Macbook it's carrying.
I've been looking for a nice, sustainable, heirloom-able cover for my Macbook for awhile now and if I had the bucks, this would be at the top of my wish list.
