Gregory Schmidt, writing for The New York Times:
It was craftsmanship rather than the bottom line that motivated Brian Holmes when he decided in 2010 to start a business and went looking for a manufacturer. He and his wife, Kari, started Pad & Quill, a company based in Minneapolis that makes high-end cases and other products for the iPhone and other Apple products.
This is a great profile on the founding of Pad & Quill. I’ve never owned any of their products but I’ve been aware of the company for quite sometime and always admired their work.
