Grove, maker of quality bamboo cases for the iPhone, has just begun pre-orders for its new iPhone 5 case. The design of this case is milled from a solid block of bamboo and sanded/oiled by hand. You have the option to get a custom engraving too.
Beautiful, natural, and durable – our iPhone 5 case is stronger than ever thanks to a plant fiber composite core fused to a solid bamboo exterior. Made of 100% post-consumer fibers and renewable bamboo, this product is fresh and sustainable. Its strength comes from being bound with water-based resins under tremendous pressure. A smooth feel and the graceful aging of the bamboo round out this ace of a case!
Each Grove iPhone 5 Case journeys through several days of hard work: milling, filing, gluing, sanding, soaking, oiling, laser engraving, inspecting, and packaging before finally shipping direct to you. And we do every last step from one building in Portland, Oregon.
Since the iPhone 5 doesn’t technically exist yet, Grove is doing more of a Kickstarter-style preorder. Potential customers need only pay $20 now to get that much off the total $80 price of the case when it becomes available. The perk of preordering is that you’ll get the case before everyone else, which is nice if you plan on buying the iPhone 5 right away.
Head over to the Grove website for more details, including where to place your preorder.
Apple is expected to announce the iPhone 5 on September 12th and offer preorders on the same day. The device is expected to ship on Friday, September 21st.
