Want your smartphone of the future to look like the Ghost of iPhone Past? If so, this case is for you. It makes even Apple’s latest, greatest iPhone X look like the device that started this whole crazy smartphone thing.

Slickwraps’ new Anniversary Skin covers the iPhone X (and older models as well) in two separate pieces of … something. The site describes it as a “full back ultra-thin durable protection.”

The retro case gives new iPhones that two-tone look that OG iPhone owners remember so well.

“Celebrate 10 years of beautifully elegant Apple design,” says the Slickwraps site. “You can now protect your iPhone X or any other iPhone going back to the 5 with the Anniversary Skin from Slickwraps. Constructed of two individual pieces, you will receive a black bottom and silver top piece to give your new device a classic look.”

While I’ve never actually seen a Slickwraps case, and can’t find exactly what material the company makes its cases from, I like the look of this throwback iPhone case. (Update: “The 10th Anniversary Skin is made with 3M Di-Noc,” Slickwraps says. That’s a type of vinyl film.)

I’m also intrigued by the company’s background, as listed on Slickwraps’ “Our Story” page:

“We pride ourselves in often being the first to come out with new ideas and custom materials, such as the hugely popular iGlowPhone. Another thing that sets Slickwraps apart from the competition is how we manufacture our products and how we procure our materials. Slickwraps, unlike many of our competitors, is American owned and operated. Every product sent out by Slickwraps is made in America and we get as many materials as possible from local vendors. With state-of-the-art machinery and very tight quality control, we can ensure customers that every product they buy from us will be extremely high-quality and made in the U.S.A.”

The company also crafted an iPhone case that makes your smartphone look like an old-school Mac.

Made in the U.S.A.? And vintage Apple cool? What’s not to like.

The Anniversary Skin is a supposedly a limited-edition iPhone case. Plus, Slickwraps is having a flash sale offering 30 percent off right now, so get one while you can.

P.S. Slickwraps’ promo video for the vintage-look iPhone case is a nice stroll down Apple memory lane, too.
