Arte di Mano Leather Cases

We're all pretty familiar with the usual purveyors of fine leather cases and straps. However, a relatively new player from South Korea is now on the scene and offering a quality perhaps not seen before - with prices to match. Called Arte di Mano, they offer custom cases for the M Monochrom, M (Type 240) and M9 style (M9, M9-P and M-E). The folks over at Leica Store Miami have given these cases an in-depth review that's worth checking out.
