IPHONE & IPOD ACCESSORIES
Grove Skate Case
Once upon a time, there were the SkateBacks that covered only the back of your precious iPhone. Now, the folks at Grove are teaming up with Maple XO to bring you the Skate Case
for the iPhone 5. This eco-friendly iPhone cover is made from recycled skateboard material rubbed with citrus oil to bring out the unique coloring of the wood.
When skateboard manufacturers build skateboards, there are plenty of leftover materials and scraps that go to waste and according to Grove, the Portland-based Skate Case manufacturer, there is enough skateboard waste material from PS Stix each week in Portland to fill up an entire school bus. In essence, they take thin wood strips and laminate them into a single block. From there, the team mills the case from that single block, and then hand-files the fine details like the docks and buttons.
Durability will not be in question either; according to the founders the Skate Case is made with a solid surface core that sits underneath the laminated maple, which helps to protect your phone.
Also, originality is guaranteed since they are made from recycled skateboard material no one in the world will ever have the same case as you.
