A Volgograd region company that produces knitted woolen goods has received an order for 50 individually designed iPad cases from the region administration, website LifeNews.ru reported Wednesday.
The Volgograd administration paid the company, called Uzory, 42,500 rubles ($1,383) for the woolen tablet cases.
"Every item will be exclusive, and skilled hands will do the embroidery — stripes, flowers, lace," said Uzory director Raisa Kazimirova, LifeNews.ru reported.
An administration representative told the website that the cases are not for members of the administration but will be given away as gifts to regional delegates visiting Volgograd for the 69th anniversary of the victory in the Battle of Stalingrad.
Another member of the administration called the idea of woolen iPad cases "excellent," since they will protect iPads from the "severe Volgograd winters."
