It's a lovely piece of material. It's light lavendar in color and feels like faux leather like some of the nice cases you would find for an iPad out there on the market.
Either way, it's great to have something nice to work with instead of some cheap horribly made China based item that would not even phathom the ability.
The keyboard is about the size of a small netbook. A little getting used to but with time; I'll learn to master it.
