If you opt for a Manna case, you can be sure to purchase a quality product, in the design and manufacture of which we put a lot of time and dedication. So for example, all our protective covers have hand-stitched seams. Besides, we use premium leather and high-quality materials for the production of our cases.
Here we have compiled an overview of all our Manna lines (leather types) and their features. It should be an aid for you to know which case is best for you and your device and helps explaining possible differences in price. For more detailed information on our types of leather, click here: About leather. Please note, differences between our Manna lines refer to the appearance of the leather, but do not relate to colours as the cases of one line often come in different colours.
The cases of our product line "Astana" are made of exquisite leather of the first or top layer of cowskin. Nappa leather is a very soft, tanned leather. Its particularly fine pores and smooth surface characterise the "Astana" protective cases. They are durable and of the highest quality.
Examples for "Astana" covers: MN60067, MN60099
The cases of our product line "Dakota" are made of exquisite leather of the first or top layer of cowskin, too. Nappa leather is very soft, tanned leather. In contrast to type "Astana", whose surface has very fine pores, our leather "Dakota" is somewhat more coarse-pored or grained. The leather has a rougher texture, which is popular with many of our customers, particularly in conjunction with coloured seams. Nevertheless, our "Dakota" cases do not lose the particular softness so typical for Nappa leathers. Moreover, they are durable and of premium quality.

Our product line "Meerana" stands for exquisite Nappa leather, which is made from the first or top layer of cowskin. Nappa leather is very soft, tanned leather. The special feature of this line is the shiny surface of the leather, which distinguishes all "Meerana" cases from our "Astana" and "Dakota" ones. However, what all three have in common is their extremely soft and smooth grip. Our "Meerana" cases are durable and of the highest quality.

Our Manna "semi-aniline leather" covers are special. Aniline leather is a dyed, open-pore leather without surface pigmentation. It has received only a thin coat of paint, which is why one can still see the natural texture. Semi-aniline and aniline leathers count among the most natural as well as the most expensive and valuable leathers. The cases of our semi-aniline leather line have a pleasant, warm, soft feel to them and a beautiful surface structure.
Examples for "semi-aniline leather" covers: MN60084, MN60096
Buffed surface leather
All protective covers of this line are made of suede. They differ from our other cases by a rougher surface texture. Suede leather is made from the inner splits of a side of leather and is buffed on the bottom side during the production process. A special feature of our Suede cases is their lovely velvety grip. The covers are very soft and of excellent quality.
Examples for "Suede" covers: MN60066
For our "Nubuck" cases, we use fine nubuck leather, which has been sanded or buffed on the grain side, or outside. This gives it a soft, velvety feel, and its distinctive grain texture. Our "Nubuck" leather cases are robust, durable and truly something special.
Examples for "Nubuck" covers: MN60071, MN60093
All Manna cases of this line are made of durable leather of the second layer of cowhide. This is a so-called pigmented leather, which was treated with primer, pigment colour and a finish coat to make it more hard-wearing. Its particularly fine pores and smooth surface characterise the "Ravenna" protective cases. They are very robust and of high quality.
Examples for "Ravenna" covers: MN60063, MN60069
The cases of our "Nevada" line are also made of durable leather of the second layer. Again, this is a so-called pigmented leather, which was treated with primer, pigment colour and a finish coat to make it more hard-wearing. It is durable and of very good quality. In contrast to type "Ravenna", whose surface has very fine pores, our leather "Nevada" is somewhat more coarse-pored or grained. The leather has a rougher texture, which is popular with many of our customers, particularly in conjunction with coloured seams.
Examples for "Nevada" covers: MN60018, MN60029, MN60050, MN60052, MN60058
For some smartphone and tablet models we offer sturdy PU leather cases, which act primarily as a cheaper but no less durable alternative to our real leather cases. These cases come with a polyurethane surface coating. This coating gives the material the necessary stability and protects your device efficiently against spray water and impacts.
Currently, we stock faux leather cases in black (MN60005), brown (MN60046, MN60075, MN60078) and wine red (MN60033). In addition, we offer plastic cases with view window for the Samsung Galaxy S4.
