Enshrine your iPhone 5 in a beautiful wooden case made entirely of bamboo! A single piece of bamboo is cut, drilled, sanded, and smoothed by a computer-controlled machine to create a unique and protective iPhone case.
Precision machining provides beveled and silky-smooth openings for each of the iPhone 5's ports, switches, and buttons.

Wrap your phone in the world's largest grass!
Bamboo is widely known for being one of the fastest-growing plants in the world and as a versatile raw material. But did you know that bamboo is actually a member of the grass family? Pretty cool!
But beyond its taxonomic classification, bamboo is unique for its variety of useful and sustainable applications. It's used as a building material, a food source, a fiber in paper, and one of the coolest iPhone 5 cases we've seen! Shielding your smartphone in a perfectly-fitting piece of wood provides an intriguing blend of technology and nature.
Every detail considered
Computer numerical control (CNC) machines make it possible to cut, drill, and sand a single piece of bamboo to the precise dimensions of the phone. It also makes it possible to create smooth, beveled edges for the various camera and button openings.
Bottom line: The Bamboo iPhone 5 Case fits your phone as snugly as any plastic or silicone case. And no, there won't be any splinters!
Two inter-locking pieces, one piece of bamboo
The Bamboo iPhone 5 Case is made from a single piece of bamboo. This ensures a consistent grain pattern throughout.
A simple friction-spring tightly holds the two pieces of the case together. They're not going to slide apart unless you deliberately pull them away from each other.
Yep, that's one handsome iPhone 5 wooden case!
The Bamboo iPhone 5 Case provides a natural and stunning contrast to the metal and glass iPhone 5.
Frequently Asked Questions
Question: Why does it have to be two separate pieces?
Answer: Wood isn't flexible. In order to facilitate a proper (and snug!) fit, you must slide the iPhone 5 into one piece and then slide the other piece into position. A spring is cut into the wood so that the two pieces snap together.
Question: It's been sanded smooth, right? I don't want splinters.
Answer: Nobody wants splinters! Yes, of course, the case has been sanded super-smooth.
Question: How much protection does it provide?
Answer: Tons! Remember, it's made out of 1/8" thick wood. We've dropped it onto concrete and the wood merely suffered a small nick. The iPhone, of course, was fine. The Bamboo iPhone 5 Case is a perfectly capable replacement for your ABS plastic or silicone case.
Question: Does it provide access to all of the ports, buttons, and switches?
Answer: Yes! Every button, port, switch, and camera features an appropriately-sized opening which has been cut to size, sanded, and smoothed. It's just like any other case except this one is made from bamboo! So, buy, buy, buy!
