The Original Tech Jewelry
Pioneering the new way to wear your AirPods, Tapper has become a leading innovative fashion-tech brand that creates the original straps, chains and metal cases for AirPods plated in precious metals. Selfie-friendly iPhone cases with 18k gold plated details and their largest collection yet of luxe AirPods accessories was recently added to the product mix. The brand was launched at the iconic concept store colette in Paris on the 1st of March 2017.
The people behind Tapper are based in Stockholm, Sweden. With backgrounds in upscale sustainable and major fashion companies, the diverse team are working towards building an ethical and inviting fashion tech brand with products made to last.
Tapper’s debut product is a lamb leather strap with brass details, designed to magnetically snap your AirPods around your neck for convenient and hassle-free usage. The idea of a strap for the AirPods came into being on 7th September 2016, the same day as the Apple AirPods were announced for the first time. The following days the AirPods went viral on social media, some of the comments and memes being based around how easy they will be to lose. On 10th September, the Tapper website was launched.
The name Tapper comes from the Swedish word for being brave or courageous. Inspiration for the name was derived from Apple's senior vice president, Phil Schiller, saying that the decision to lose the headphone jack wasn't about a wireless future, it was essentially about being brave.
