It is important to examine and research quality and durability before selecting a leather folio case. A folio case made with real, quality leather in the desired color is ideal. Leather that looks or feels synthetic is low quality and should not be considered when a high-quality case is desired.
The quality of stitching on the case needs to be examined. Folio cases with loose strands or cheap linings should be avoided, as that likely indicates poor craftsmanship overall. The case must be the proper size to accommodate devices or the intended purpose. The number of pockets, ease of closing, and general style of the case are also important considerations.
