Treating that iPhone to a handmade leather case. Shinola.

Boot Camp feature for Friday, January 9, 2015

Treating that iPhone to a handmade leather case.    I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.     To lots of folks…a smartphone is a fashion accessory.   And if you’re looking for something to dress up that new iPhone, Shinola is on the market with handmade leather wrapped cases.  Co-design director John Truex….

“We are using one of the finest leathers from America.  It is from a tannery outside of Chicago called Horween.  It’s a big part of the Shinola heritage.   So that is an important aspect of it.   That and the fact that it’s offered in a variety of colors.   It’s fashion direction.  The idea of being able to select a color in a leather and have that part of your daily accessory life.”

A leather wrapped case for the iPhone 6 will set you back about 90 dollars.  A case for the larger 6 plus is five dollars more.    There’s more info at Shinola.com.   You can find us at BootCamp.com.   I’m Fred Fishkin.
