Koa Wood Phone Case, Hawaiian Islands Design, All Models

Note--for all i13 models...iʻm waiting to get the blanks...they should get here late next week and then I need to program all the cuts and get them perfect.  Should take a day or so to start shipping once they are in hand. 


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.  

  • Slim case design (all the protection, none of the bulk)
  • Sustainably Harvested Koa from Hawaii (no need to feel guilty here)
  • Drop tested and approved (we're like drunken sailors around the shop)
  • Protection on all sides (including raised front lip to protect the screen)
  • Made in Hawaii (yes that's still considered made in the USA) 

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.  

but How bout the Case???

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'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.

Still need more info? That away to be thorough!

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.
