The new cover doesn’t really add any functionality, but it’s designed to look and feel a bit more impressive than the usual fabric. The Signature Type Cover was unveiled at Milan Disign Week, a showcase for luxury and fashion products.
Microsoft says it takes five weeks to produce each cover using the Italian fabric.
The cover measures 11.6″ x 8.5″ x 0.2″ and weighs about 10 ounces, making it about the same size (and a tiny bit lighter) than a normal Surface Type Cover.
The Signature Edition model is designed to work with the Microsoft Surface Pro 3 and Pro 4 tablets and features a full QWERTY keyboard and magnets for attaching to the tablet.
