Frederick James designs and manufactures fashion iPad cases made out of luxury rescued and vintage fabrics such as Cashmere, Silk, Rayon, Organza and Wool. Now, they’re taking these recycled iPad cases to the next level- using Bernie Madoff’s salvaged clothing. Yes, that’s right…..Bernie Madoff’s salvaged clothing.
The iPad case collection called “The Bernie Madoff” uses a limited number of personal clothing items belonging to the notorious felon, Bernie Madoff. After his arrest, US Marshalls seized and auctioned thousands of items from his New York homes. Each iPad case is one-of-a-kind and they range in price from $250 to $500…..Wait, how much does an actual iPad cost? $500? Ok… Founder John Vaccaro warns purchasers that the cases are strictly for fashion use and should not be trusted to keep an iPad safe in the case of a drop.
And if you’re wondering “Who is that guy?”, Bernie Madoff is the admitted operator of what has been described as the largest Ponzi scheme in history. He was sentenced to 150 years in prison in 2009.
