Our iPhone cases are designed to offer the best possible combination of style, elegance, exclusivity and functionality. The case we dress in Italian leather is made of polycarbonate which is an extremely elastic and durable material that is used globally in a very large number of products. Polycarbonate can also be recycled and 50% of the content derivers from recycled polycarbonate.
After the leather has been applied and cut off along the edges of the iPhone 12 case a matching edge paint is applied in several layers, which seals the edges, including those on the camera hole. The construction is made so that the case can be easily removed while protecting the screen. This is achieved by the case being 0.5mm higher than the thickness of an iPhone, which means that the screen avoids contact with any hard surfaces when it is placed with the screen down. The contact with hard surfaces is made with the edges of the case. The inside of the iPhone 12 case is covered with microfiber which gives an extra cushioning effect and protects against scratches. The case has an opening at the bottom to facilitate access to the charging port and to provide maximum reproduction of the sound from the two speakers located on each side of the charging port. Even if you drop your iPhone 12 on the ground, the corners and edges of the case will protect the iPhone.
The leather on our iPhone 12 cases
To guarantee the highest possible quality of our products, the iPhone 12 cases from The Case Factory are made of genuine leather from the best tanneries in Italy, which also supplies leather to companies such as Prada, Hermes, Bottega Veneta, Tod’s and Chanel. All our cases are made by hand and carefully checked individually before being offered for sale. Apart from the fact that the covers offer protection against your iPhone from breaking when dropping it on the ground, they have increasingly become a way of expressing personal style and preference, just like all other fashion accessories. Our ambition is to be the best at what we do. Our covers and cases transform an industrial mass product such as the mobile phone into a personal and stylish fashion accessory that we are proud to bring with us. Our iPhone 12 cases are bought by customers who value quality, craftsmanship, fashion and style as well as environmentally friendly raw materials that can be recycled. In this context, it is important to point out that "PU leather" and so-called "Vegan leather" have nothing to do with genuine leather. Vegan leather is only a new term coined by the chemical industry for "PU leather" which is an abbreviation of Polyurethane which is a synthetic polymeric material that is commonly called plastic.
The Case Factory uses hides which tanneries recycle from the slaughterhouses' operations for meat production and therefore a 100% ecological raw material. The hides are subject to a refining and production process that meets the requirements of the REACH regulation.
Vegetable tanned leather
Whenever possible we also strive to use vegetable tanned hides which are the most natural and environmentally friendly type of tanning. This process is based on the use of the natural substance tannin, which is the main ingredient in transforming animal skin into a compact and resistant material that retains its properties and appearance over time. Another important reason for using vegetable tanned leather is that the manufacturing process has less environmental impact. Hides tanned with natural tannins can be easily recycled at the end of its life thanks to its chemical-biological properties. iPhone 12 cases made with vegetable tanned leather also develops a dark patina and acquires a vintage look over time.
Our iPhone 12 design philosophy is to combine the minimalistic and stylish Scandinavian heritage with Italy's creativity and craftsmanship. We only offer products that we are proud to use, show to friends and give away as gifts. Our autumn and spring collections of iPhone cases reflect fashion trends in both colors and patterns. You can often find the same leather on both bags and shoes made by the global fashion houses.
Emboss your initials
Our iPhone 12 cases allow you to emboss your initials in gold or silver foil in two different sizes. The initials can be placed at the bottom or top of the case. Embossing your initials makes the case even more elegant and special. A case with the initials is a perfect present!
