Portuguese Designers have “dressed” Microsoft’s Surface

Portuguese designer Ruth Gomes came up with the idea: to create a protective case for Microsoft’s new Windows tablet. The case would be made of burel, a national fabric made of wool and that is commonly used in Portuguese handcraft. Microsoft accepted the proposal and two other designers (Sara Lamúrias and Rui Grazina) were also invited to integrate the project.

Simple ideas make a difference.
