I’ve been on the hunt for fun new leather products again, and I think I’ve found a gem. You have probably figured it out from the title, but these are leather cell phone cases that look like books.
What Makes Them So Great?
It isn’t like these are anything all that special, but I think they are kind of cool. They are nice quality leather, and they protect your phone while making it look super cool. What more could you want?
Plus, they are cheaper than a lot of other leather cell phone cases I’ve reviewed.
Where Can I Get One?
You can actually get these things from several different places. The one pictured above is from a seller on Bonanza that you can check out by clicking here. These ones are one of my personal favorites when it comes to features it has. With the wallet and kickstand built in, it is everything you ever need. Plus it is primarily made of full grain leather.
The reason I think they are great is because they make a variety of cool book style phone, tablet, and laptop cases, and they will custom make just about anything. The whole thing isn’t made out of leather unfortunately, the binding and other portions are, and you can’t get a lot of the designs she does if you made it entirely of leather. But they can handle an impressive fall of nearly 12 feet! Julia is an absolute delight to work with, and really cares about what she does.
If you don’t care as much about the customization part, but you want a more authentic, aged, all leather look, then I would have to go with the cases made by DesignedBySeda. They are made out of top grain leather from Turkey, and while they have a variety of different styles, they don’t do custom projects.
However, Seda, the owner of DesignedBySeda is all about customer satisfaction, so if you have a super cool idea that you would like, and you have some friends that think it would be cool too, you can suggest it to her and she may make a new model for you based off it.
You can also get similar cases on Amazon, but I prefer the other two sites, since they are small time artisans just trying to make a living. That usually means they have decent prices and great quality.
Plus that makes them way more customizable and you can contact the creator and ask questions, get specific orders, etc. I’ve personally had several conversations with both Seda and Julia, and they are wonderful people who put a lot of effort into delivering a quality product.
Watch the short video review below to get a visual feel of the pros and cons of these cases!
Christmas and Birthday Potential
For example, they have this Maurader’s Map case for your resident Harry Potter fanatic. Whatever your friend or loved one’s favorite movie/book/TV show is, you can make a case that reflects it and will be sure to make them scream like a fangirl.
It is simple, easy, useful, and lets them know that you put some thought into it. On top of that, it doesn’t empty your bank account.
Overall, I think they are pretty cool. If you agree and want to see some more, you can click here to check out the whole CaseLibrary selection.
