No big deal...just the straight awesomeness of the most amazing Hawaiian curly grained Koa on the planet. A case for the purist...no design to clutter the beauty of the wood...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 my new phone case and the company spirit portrayed in their correspondence!
I instantly fell in love with the honu reef design and the smooth Koa wood finish! It fits perfectly. I love the material used for the sides (the black parts). It has some sort of slip-resistant finish that allows me to grip my phone better. I definitely will be using this case for as long as I can. This phone case will also make a great decorative piece even after you get a new phone model. Wonderful service and craftsmanship! Mahalo Pono Woodworks!
I am very happy with this beautiful koa wood inlay case. Fits my phone perfectly!!
Jealousy abounds when I show people
My case is amazing and I love it
