Home decor and furnishings nerds will likely recognize the brand Chilewich. They make some of the nicest textiles products out there,from luxurious floor mats to table placemats. We think some of those decor-oriented types may be interested to know Chilewich has partnered with Apple accessory maker, Griffin Technology Inc., to bring some of that woven style to the iPhone.
The Griffin + Chilewich iPhone is made of Mini Basketweave woven vinyl, providing grip, protection and very unique textural appearance that is sure to impel friends to ask, "Can I hold that?" The inside of the case is an impact-resistant Griffin-engineered polycarbonate shell. All the iPhone's controls are accessible while the case is on.
"Weaving with extruded vinyl yarn provides me with endless design possibilities . . . the intrinsic sheen of the yarn, its durability and the fact that it can be washed makes the finished textile modern, elegant, and functional,"
