Case-Mate has introduced their Crafted Collection of smartphone cases featuring exotic hardwoods. These cases have a brushed aluminum body with a wood accent on the back. Case-Mate says this line is inspired by the interiors of vintage automobiles and “is a marriage of sophisticated natural materials with a thoughtful attention to assembly and finishing details.” Accent woods are rosewood, blackened ash, leopard wood, zebrawood, narra, or birdseye maple. As you can see from the photo, the aluminum case is sometimes colored to complement the wood. Each case is $80, and most of them are available for iPhone 4/4S, iPhone 5, or the Samsung Galaxy S3.
