Fan of skateboarding? iPhone owner? If you’re both this is the perfect thing. Portland iPhone case manufacturer Grove has decided to make use of the vast quantity of waste produced by a skateboard manufacturer to create Skatebacks, unique iPhone backplates that are guaranteed to set you out from the crowd.
They are made out of the excess wood discarded by the skateboard manufacturer, and as such, they are completely unique in terms of pattern and regularity.
Skatebacks, which have been made with the help of MapleXO, a manufacturer who makes jewelry hout of skateboard waste, come in three varietes, Vibrant, Calm and Neutral, so there’sa flavour for everyone.
At $49, they’re not the cheapest, especially considering they only protect the back of your iPhone and aren’t really reusable once you’ve stuck them on, however if you’re looking for something different and eco friendly, then it’s for you. You can order them here, they ship in one to two weeks as of writing.
