Shoots...just the straight awesomeness of the most amazing Hawaiian curly grained Koa on the planet wrapped in a case designed with minimal bulk and maximum protection. Our wave design draws its inspiration from the Japanese woodblock prints that have weaved their way into the fabric of Hawaii.
The cases are a combination of hard plastic backer and soft TPU sides which will bounce when dropped...we don't recommend testing that although we're pretty sure you'll find out eventually. All this work to create a one of a kind reminder of the islands...The Islands are Calling.
A ton of work goes into getting you the perfect phone case...here's the rundown...I hand pick every piece of Koa for amazing grain patterns which I then hand sand, finish with water-based poly, laser cut, sip a beer, etch a design, apply ink and assemble. Like I said, pretty much ridiculousness...but it makes a super unique wood phone case.
We use only the finest sustainably harvested "curly" grained Koa wood from the Big Island of Hawaii. Koa only grows in Hawaii and was once reserved for royalty. It was used for the first surfboards, warrior's weapons and the outrigger sailing canoes that explored the Pacific.
two words...drunken sailers...that's what we are like in the shop...dropping and generally mistreating our phones. The case bouces when dropped (take my word for it) and protects nicely while being as thin as possible...cause who wants a brick in their pocket.
The perfect reminder of Hawaii that will literally go everywhere with you. Don't forget to grab one as a gift for someone missing the islands.
...if you can call it that. Each case is made in my shop...I sand, finish with poly, laser etch and cut, assemble, and ink every case that goes out the door. No wonder I'm not surfing these days.
We love our new cases. They look and fit perfect. Pono wood works No Ka Oi. Mahalo Nui.
