In this tech-obsessed city, almost nobody leaves home without at least one gadget in tow. And with all the real-world dangers (i.e. concrete curbs!) that can cause chips and scuffs on our precious devices, we need some quirky-yet-tough armor for protection. That’s why we (along with President Obama and J.Crew's Mickey Drexler) covet San Francisco-based DODOcase, since the brand nails it in assembling top-notch carriers that are anything but boring.
To see how the holders come to “protect from extinction,” we poked around the company's Dogpatch factory to learn first hand. What'd we find? A stellar team of swift-working DODO makers and an industrially cool workspace. Antsy to greet the bookbinding folks? We’ve caught the team in action, and chatted up co-founder Craig Dalton for all the DODO deets, meaning you’re bound to learn a thing or two! Click through after the jump, and once you see how awesome the digs are, we’ll rest our case.
