Treating that iPhone to a handmade leather case. I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear. To lots of folks…a smartphone is a fashion accessory. And if you’re looking for something to dress up that new iPhone, Shinola is on the market with handmade leather wrapped cases. Co-design director John Truex….
“We are using one of the finest leathers from America. It is from a tannery outside of Chicago called Horween. It’s a big part of the Shinola heritage. So that is an important aspect of it. That and the fact that it’s offered in a variety of colors. It’s fashion direction. The idea of being able to select a color in a leather and have that part of your daily accessory life.”
A leather wrapped case for the iPhone 6 will set you back about 90 dollars. A case for the larger 6 plus is five dollars more. There’s more info at Shinola.com. You can find us at BootCamp.com. I’m Fred Fishkin.
