Japanese iPhone Cases So Pricey, They Have Their Own Cases



If a Japanese warlord from the Sengoku period had an iPhone, this is the case they’d protect it with. It’s handmade with special lacquer and gold dust, takes a craftsman four weeks to make, and costs a cool $1,000. It’s so special, it has its own protective case — that’s right, a case for the case.

Japan’s SoftBank BB has just started offering a series of five handmade iPhone cases called the Japan Texture line.

Designed with the help of a historian, the cases are inspired by the rich pageantry of the Sengoku period (1467 to 1615).

Each case comes in a swank wooden box, and includes a historical booklet and its own protective pouch.
