After belittling the Apple Smart Cover elsewhere on this site, I decided to customize one of the several (3 dollar) plastic backs that I've bought from Amazon and eBay. I took my bench grinder and cut away the plastic where the magnet attaches to the mini. The results were amazing, and now the Apple Smart Cover is something that is useable for me. It stays attached as it should, and my cutaway job almost looks professionally done and the back of my device has the protection it needs.
But.... Still not satisfied. I don't like the feel of the polyurethane smart cover. And I think it's because I have dry skin - the feel against my fingers is irritating and the rubber makes it hard to slide into a tight pocket. (I don't like Incipio cases for the same reason-the feel is irritating to me)
So I need for Apple to offer the smart cover in leather. I have seen several smart covers offered in imitation leather and have ordered one, but it won't have the feel that an Apple offered product would have and will the magnet/hinge hold up?
I'm sure my imitation cover will work for now, but please Apple I need a leather smart cover.

Sure have. The folks there are great listeners and agree with me often. ;) but are mostly not in charge of manufacturing. One lady told me they would surely have one available, but couldn't promise a date.

They do make a leather smart cover for the iPad, but not for the iPad mini.
I just checked their website again. It is still not offered. :(
