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 Honu in the reef design draws its inspiration from my free diving days and the turtles that lazily meander through the reefs.
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.
My father loved Koa wood so much that he had custom Koa wood paneling made for his fishing vessel. Getting Koa wood today is nearly impossible and I had brought a cell phone case from Pomo several years ago and loved it. It brings back fond memories of fishing and cruising surrounded by Koa. I refused to update my iPhone 8 because Pomo didn’t make Koa case for the new phone models. Once I was able to a case for an iPhone 13 I brought the case and order the phone. It’s as beautiful as the first one and I’m sure it’ll bring back fond memories for many more years
