We said it once and we’ll say it again: Accessories for Apple products are all the rage these days. Feeding on that rage is the new rugged leather folio from Griffin and Prophetik. With sustainable as its buzz word of choice, the leather used here isn’t new but 100% recycled. This explains the lack of posh stylings and smooth contours. Your iPhone plus the related contents of your wallet just slide in and stay there, snug and warm.
A collaboration between digital accessories maker Griffin and environmentally conscious fashion house Prophetik (who are notorious for their hand-made aesthete), the real clincher if you purchase one of these is they already look worn. When inside, your iPhone’s edges bulge and the leather is creased all around. It’s a preference best suited for those who want a prolonged attachment to the things they own, be it a favorite watch or an old wallet. It’s an emotional bond difficult to explain but manifests itself in the things you buy.
Available in brown and black, these cases are a limited edition run and can be had for $59.99.
