No big deal...just the straight awesomeness of the most amazing Hawaiian curly grained Koa on the planet. Our Hawaiian Islands gracefully covers just enough case without overwhelming...Turns out, it actually is a pretty big deal.
We are proud to say our wood iPhone cases are carried in over 50 stores throughout the Hawaiian Islands. 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.
...sure it's amazing looking but that's just the start of it's story. We source our Koa from fallen or dying trees from private ranches on the Big Island of Hawaii. The curly grain pattern is the most rare and expensive and we use only the most beautiful (and therefore expensive). The current log we are using cost more than my truck...and it's a pretty nice truck. I personally hand sand, finish, etch, cut, ink and assemble all the cases going out of our shop. Hopefully this year I learn to delegate.
Last year I personally made over seven thousand phone cases...that's not a typo. During those efforts, I've learned a few things more than how to relieve aching finger pain and the marvels of watching Netflix into the wee hours of the morning. I found the case that everybody loves...it's not too thick, plenty of bounce if dropped, gripies (that's the technical term) on the side, and a protective lip for the front side. It's everything you need and nothing you don't.
Check out the video below. The islands are calling...answer already. No really, this is all I got. It's time to pull the trigger.
Love the Koa and the beautiful design on the phone protectors. they fit our Iphones perfectly and look great. Shipping was a bit slow, but their customer service was good and always with a sense of humor.
Form vs function is the tradeoff that most artists are faced with, but Pono Woodworks has mastered both. Their cases are stunning to look at AND they function extremely well! The case covers the volume and on/off buttons to keep the dirt out, and there is just enough of a raised bevel to protect the glass if the phone is dropped. The case has just the right amount of grip to keep your phone from slipping out of your hand, but not enough to prevent you from easily sliding it into your pocket. This is my second case, and the first one sill looks as good as new after years of use. Can’t say enough about this beautiful and functional piece of art! Bravo!!!
Being a nature conservationist at heart, I truly enjoy the well-crafted sea turtle design. Thank you for making such a high-quality product.
Love the new phone case! My husband is a Island lover and had one before and got a new phone and was missing his piece of Hawaii, great anniversary gift!
Love the case but need to return it and get replacement. I ordered the Galaxy S20 but need the Galaxy S20 FE 5G size.
