Tell us about your business.DODOcase designs and manufactures book-bound cases, sewn canvas sleeves, paper notebooks and other accessories to accommodate today’s most popular digital devices. Each one is made by hand in San Francisco using traditional craft techniques and the company quickly rose to popularity following its launch alongside the Apple iPad in April 2010. Overwhelming consumer response led to notable critical acclaim and the eventual expansion of its San Francisco operation to include an in-house Bookbindery, Woodshop and Sewing Studio. DODOcase has succeeded in creating products unparalleled in style and quality, and now supports Apple, Kindle, Nexus and Samsung products. DODOcase recently launched its Build-A-DODO online customizer – a unique custom craft experience that empowers customers to create their own DODOcase. DODOcase is based in San Francisco, California, and continues to find ways to connect tradition and technology through handcrafted products to meet today's modern needs.
What makes your business stand out?Every DODOcase is made by hand in San Francisco. Each product evokes a sensation of eras gone by, of detailed craftsmanship and lasting quality. Each DODOcase has its own unique character as it was handmade using techniques developed hundreds of years ago with rich materials and good, old-fashioned hard work. DODOcase continues to hone its craft techniques and find new ways to bring handmade products to its customers while providing transparency and a view into the company's everyday operations.
