Leather Options

Modern Leather Case for AirPods Pro is available in two leather options. 

Our standard leather was developed by Nomad in collaboration with Danish tannery Ecco, utilizing modern tanning techniques that are adaptable, efficient, and innovative. It will still develop a patina over time, though it is slightly less susceptible to scratches and marks than our Horween leather.

Horween leather is handcrafted entirely in the U.S.A. using old-fashioned techniques. It smells richly of leather and will absorb marks, scratches, and oils into a lustrous patina that is totally unique to you. If you're looking for authentic, American-made leather, we would point you to Horween.

More questions? Check out these FAQs.

Will Modern Leather Case scratch?

Both of our leather options are naturally and minimally treated and will therefore easily scuff and mark within the first weeks days of use. With time, scuffs and marks will buff out into a rich and lustrous patina. If you’re after an authentic leather patina that evolves with time, this is absolutely the case for you.

How do I attach a lanyard to Modern Leather Case?

The lanyard attachment point is built into the right-hand side of Modern Leather Case. To attach the lanyard, use a paperclip to push the thread through the openings. Shop our Wrist Strap here

How do I remove Modern Leather Case?

Plug your AirPods in to charge, then hold your case and push on the Lightning cable to remove the AirPods. 

Does this case work with AirPods Pro (1st gen)? 
Yes, AirPods Pro (1st gen) are fully compatible with Modern Leather Case. The external speaker cutout is an added benefit for AirPods Pro (2nd gen).
