Tapper is pioneering the new way to wear your AirPods. Stockholm-based Tapper is an innovative fashion-tech brand that creates the original straps, chains and metal cases for AirPods and AirPods Pro plated in precious metals. Tapper launched at the iconic concept store colette in Paris on the 1st of March 2017.
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. Today the Tapper range includes nylon straps, leather straps, rope chains and metal neck cases for AirPods and AirPods Pro plated in 18K gold, 925 silver and hematite black that steps up your AirPods game beyond what you thought was even possible for a statement accessory. Handcrafted and designed in Sweden, Tapper also offers a solid 18K gold mesh chain for AirPods and AirPods Pro, like fine jewelry for your AirPods. In short, Tapper has become the must-have AirPods accessory brand.
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.
