Carved Wood and Resin Phone Case
Carved Wood and Resin Phone Case Review
It’s hard to write a case review unless the company is offering some high-technology differentiation for drop protection or waterproofing. Other than that, a case is just a case. But Carved challenges the notion of phone-case-as-commodity by placing a thin slice of wood and resin on the back of each case, creating an absolutely one-of-a-kind piece of art to encase your Apple or Samsung Galaxy phone.
The case is made of Thermoplastic Polyurethane or TPU, a flexible rubber alternative that absorbs the impact of falls. A recessed pocket at the corner enhances the drop protection. The TPU covers all the corners and sits slightly above the phone’s display to protect it from tiny objects on desks and tables. A lip also extrudes from the camera area, helping protect the lenses from scratches. The case also covers the buttons but leaves them with a mechanical feel.
For Apple products, the case is also MagSafe compatible.
The real star of Carved cases is the wood and resin art that shines along the back of the case. It’s hard to describe the variety of colors and patterns. Don’t look at the website stoned or you might never look away. The following image provides just a glimpse of the diverse case options, each one with its own first name.
Carved Wood and Resin Phone Cases are kind of like a trip to Costco. If you see something you want, buy it now because it might not be there the next time you visit.
Packing was not only minimal but beautiful. The case arrived in a nicely sewn sack and was accompanied by a wood-grained cardboard custom envelope with a company backgrounder, a social sharing encouragement card, and a sticker.
iPhone 15 Pro cases run $64, and older cases run $59 and lower. See the Carved website for selection and precise pricing.
If you love being close to nature or have a friend or loved one who appreciates nature and the collaboration that comes from caring humans not just taking pleasure in it but enhancing it, then a Carved case should perhaps become permanent protection for a beloved device, or at least a change of clothes.
