XHiBT Inspiria- Where Surfboard Manufacturing And Book-Binding Techniques Collide

XHiBT Inspiria- Where Surfboard Manufacturing And Book-Binding Techniques Collide


When it comes to iPad and iPhone cases there is a nearly endless sea of options to choose from, so what makes XhiBT’s offerings stand out? Today XhiBT announced its new Inspiria collection of iPad and iPhone cases which are hand-made from a solid bamboo frame and finished off with a durable book-bound cover. The end result is a carefully put together case design that truly stands out. XhiBT brings together traditional book-binding techniques and vintage surfboard manufacturing in order to create their cases. At the moment, XhiBT Inspiria book-bound cases support the iPad, iPhone 4 and Kindle Fire. Its most basic Inspiria offering begins at $49.95 and goes up from there. While this might seem a little on the high side of pricing, keep in mind that everything is hand-made, while most cases you buy are generally cheaply massed produced in a large factory setting.

XHiBT becomes the summer rage for iPad & iPhone cases

SAN FRANCISCO and SANTA CRUZ, Calif., July 20, 2012 /PRNewswire/ —

XHiBT, a specialty manufacturer of locally crafted book bound iPad & iPhone cases, inspired by the artistic greats, has launched an exciting new line of vibrant and colorful cases, as part of their Inspiria™ collection.  These custom cases come in a variety of dazzling exterior and interior color combinations and finishes and can be personally monogrammed.

Having brought together two orthogonal industries, traditional book binding and vintage surfboard manufacturing, XHiBT is adding flair to the mix as it continues to innovate and surprise.  Each case has a beautiful handmade solid bamboo frame that securely protects the mobile device and is finished off with a lasting and durable book bound cover.  With its 100 year old San Francisco bindery and its Santa Cruz vintage wood surfboard manufacturing team, XHiBT wants to keep things local and made in the United States.

“Our products are about celebrating individuality… our customers design their cases with our offering of exceptional variety, craftsmanship, and now, striking colors,” says Marcia Ferrante, Marketing Director for the XHiBT.  “Unique personalization is what our customers want and is what we intend to deliver.”

“Having gone to great lengths carefully specifying and sourcing unique and rare industrial strength materials is paying off,” said co-founder Dale Rossi.  “We are in continuous search for the road less traveled and hope to stand out on our merits. We hope to earn customer loyalty and be around for generations to come.”

“I own a lot of cases, then I have my XHiBT case,” said one customer. “In fact, my wife and older son have them as well, and each is one-of-a-kind.  When I go into a coffee shop, it’s my case that turns heads.”
