With each iPhone release comes a bevy of accessories to complement Apple’s latest gear, and this year, Grovemade is back to accompany the iPhone 7 with its wooden and leather designed cases and wallets.

The Portland, Oregon-based company specializes in designing and handcrafting wooden and leather accessories and introduced a new collection to pair with Apple’s newest releases last week.

Grovemade’s newest products include a folio wallet case, a leather and wood case, a wood case, wood iPhone bumpers, and a wood iPhone dock. Ken Tomita, one of the company’s co-founders, said in a release that the company has refocused its direction to iPhone cases with the latest release.

“We’ve spent the last year creating pocket knives and speaker systems and with the launch of the iPhone 7, the team has returned to its roots by setting out to make the best wooden iPhone accessories on the market,” Tomita said. “Not only have we redesigned our current styles, but we now offer our customers a hybrid wallet case that minimizes everyday carry.”

Quality craftsmanship is at the core of the company’s values, according to the release, as “each case and dock is milled, hand sanded and minimally treated to retain the inherent beauty of the wood.” Each product was conceptualized, fabricated and manufactured in Grovemade’s woodshop in Portland.

The lineup includes variants to fit both the iPhone 7 and the 7 Plus and focuses on minimalist design. The folio wallet case, for example, features a “frame of solid domestically sourced wood with a premium vegetable-tanned leather cover that develops a patina over time.” An interior flat will hold two cards vertically and a few folded bills.

While the wallet isn’t meant to be a rugged, all-purpose wallet to stash the contents of your bank account, it’ll serve as a solid, fashionable accessory item to pair with your new iPhone. The iPhone 7 folio wallet case retails for $129, and an extra $10 for the 7 Plus. Grovemade has made the latest wallet design available for all iPhone 6 variants as well.
