Remember the fat wallets our dad’s carried? Unfortunately, cash was rarely responsible for the back pocket bulge with things like receipts, business cards, a spare key, contacts list and of course an accordion fold-out of family pictures taking up wallet real estate and stretching them into a back-breaking burden.

Today, our iPhones can carry virtually everything, our memories, our money, our contacts and even a virtual key with the right Smarthome app. And what remains could easily fit in a case that serves as both a wallet and iPhone protection.

E-commerce accessories company Edward Field exists to merge wallet and smartphone and its latest line called Cordura strays from the usual Italian leather of their product lines to cater to people active in outdoor leisure.

SAN FRANCISCO — Teddy Winthrop is into leather. Like, way into it. In the year since he launched Edward Field, his high-end iPhone wallet case company, he’s been obsessing over ways to make his leather cases sleeker, more functional and more straight-up appealing to the humans who use them.

“It’s weird,” he told Cult of Mac while discussing the mission of his company, which launches a new line of products today. “I never thought I’d be passionate about wallets.”

Touted as “the ultimate iPhone leather case” by its creators, the Guardian Leather case for iPhone 6 and 6s is a new wallet-style accessory with a campaign that just launched on Indiegogo. It’s designed with various functions in mind, but the focus on music takes the cake: You can control the volume from the outside of the case and even store your earbuds along the side of it.

I spent some time with the Guardian Leather to test the various functions it promises to deliver and the overall quality of the case. If you’re a fan, you have plenty of time to back the Indiegogo project — just under one month left.

Longtime Cult of Mac readers know I can be a sucker for wood. It’s a material with integrity, and I like the way it juxtaposes with Apple’s preferred design materials of metal and glass. I loved using Monolith’s beautiful wood veneers with my old iPhone 5. And I can’t wait to try Pad & Quill’s new gorgeous wood cases for the latest iPhones.
