Protect your iPhone 6S with the durability and natural resilience of wood

In a marketplace filled with cookie cutter plastic cases, the distinctive look of wood is often imitated but never achieved. That’s why Woodcessories cases, designed and crafted in Germany exclusively for Apple products, actually use genuine wood.

The EcoCase is a slim case custom fit for the iPhone 6/6S that consists of a thin, polycarbonate snap-on shell and full wood back panel made from bamboo, walnut, or cherry wood. Each case has its own unique wood grain pattern, and no two cases are exactly alike. The wood panels are laser engraved near the bottom with the Woodcessories logo, two crossed axes, for a look that is clean and elegant. In the hand, the case feels warm and solid with enough texture for you to keep a firm grip on your phone.

The interior of the EcoCase is a lined with a soft-touch silicone rubber that protects the back of your phone from scratches and adds some shock absorption. When combined with the hardwood backing, the case provides a fair amount of protection against everyday wear and tear or the occasional drop.

However, there is virtually no protection in front for the phone’s screen. While there is a very slight rim around the edges, it’s nearly flush with the screen and won’t raise it up much when you place the phone face down. We highly recommend adding some sort of screen protector, like tempered glass, for a bit of impact deflection or at least PET film to guard against scratches.

The iPhone 6 slides easily into this snap-on style case, and its trim profile barely adds any dimension to the phone. The buttons and ports are fully exposed through sectional cutouts on the sides and bottom for easy access to all the exterior features of your phone, though these large gaps offer a bit less physical protection overall.

EcoCase

The wood comes pre-sealed with a natural wax that extends the life of the wood, provides some water resistance, and prevents it from cracking due to dryness. However, over time, this coating may wear off. While no specific care instructions are included with the case, occasional maintenance of the wood with oil or wax sealants from time to time can help preserve it.

In addition to its aesthetics and durability, wood is arguably a sustainable and eco-friendly resource that is both renewable and recyclable for a greener alternative to plastic. Since the EcoCase is available for less than $25 on MobileFun, that makes it not only an environmentally conscious option but an affordable one as well.
