Completely Unique!
All of our products are made from real wood, no fake printed wood grain. The grain pattern will react beautifully to lighting changes. The product you receive will have a different grain pattern than what is pictured. It will be one of a kind.
Natural Wood Feel
Our unique finish is carefully sprayed onto our products. This finish maintains a natural wood feel and look while providing a very high level of protection for your device. This is an amazing finish that ensures your new wood skin or case will look great for years to come. We carefully spray two coats of this finish and sand in between to give the final product a natural smooth feel.
Why Do Some Photos Look Different?
Our products are made from 100% real wood which reacts to lighting changes. Every skin or case will have a different and unique grain pattern. We do our best to photograph a variety of grain patterns and lighting conditions to give you the best idea what our product will look like. We love the changing nature of wood! Your skin or case will look different in the sun than it will inside your house or car. That is what makes our products so beautiful and unique!

  • Great product, and company to deal with!! , 01/22

    I ordered a Black Limba iPhone 4S case. The whole process was simple, and quick. Now that I have the case on my phone, I couldn't be happier. The wood product is amazing, feels great, and looks incredible. I highly, highly recommend CARVED if you're looking for a wood case for your phone

  • Awesome ! , 01/16

    I was searching for an elegant, classic yet original case for my Iphone. First, it was shipped very fast and arrived really fast considering I'm in France. There are nice stickers given with the case. I am absolutely thrilled by the Black Limba case I juste received. It's obviously designed and crafted with a great care and love. The matte material is comfortable and has a good grip and the wood is just absolutely beautiful. The photos can't do justice to its smooth feel and slight shiny reflections.
    Thank you so much !

  • Great product, great service , 12/29

    A great looking product, just like the way I expected it to be. The shipping went without any problems and arrived in less than 2 weeks in Belgium. The personalized message within the package is very much appreciated. Thanks Carved!

  • Black limba for iphone 4s , 12/10

    This is my 2nd Carved case for the same phone and I must say that I am once again amazed at the way it looks on my phone. While the previous cedar case had a nice subtle look, my new black limba case is really striking with the wood grains even more pronounced. I'm loving the new case! Thanks and great job to everyone on the Carved team!

  • AMAZING! , 07/31

    Wow! This was not just buying a phone case; the people were incredible, the case is gorgeous, quality, and even smells good :) The personal signatures on the inside of the case made my day. I know it's 'just' a phone case, but it's NOT, this case is made with love, beauty, and I really appreciate the kindness and hard work of this group of people!! Everyone should support this company! The Black Limba is sexy and well made and I look forward to purchasing many more cases :) Thanks - Sandi

  • Looks great , 07/14

    And that's all I've got.

  • Great product & service , 07/05

    The phone case is perfect--admired by all who see it. Shipping was unbelievably fast. This is my best on-line shopping experience EVER!

  • Beautiful , 06/18

    I'm not normally a reviewer... but this is my second Carved case and they're both amazing. Love the black matte look with my old black iphone

  • High Expectations , 05/27

    I have been a fan of wooden iPhone cases for a long time and most of the examples I have seen have been high dollar hand crafted cases that were out of my price range. Carved has produced a case that is hand crafted from exotic natural wood, it's beautiful, classy and exactly what I wanted.

  • my first tailor-made case , 03/23

    Not only the product itself, but the lovely packaging and thank you note on the receipt gives the feeling that it was worth to buy it.
    I am really passionate about my woodcase :)

  • Great product and FAST shipping to Canada! , 03/07

    I am SO supprised my case is already here. I expected 3 weeks. It was more like 1 week. Thank you for a beautiful iphone case... I didnt have any trouble putting on the front plate. My only concern is breaking myiphone now since I was used to the otter box. Thank you again for the coolest iphone case. Now cheers to me not dropping it!!!

  • Awesome Product , 02/19

    This phone case is great!

  • Steve , 02/04

    Even better than the set of skins I ordered last year. The thinner profile was a nice surprise. Thanks again!

  • Great product! , 12/15

    I'm very happy with my purchase of this phone case. It's beautiful, slim, and well made. My only wish is that the sides went up a little higher than the face of the phone for protection. I would recommend, you guys make a great product!

  • Fantastic Product that matches the service , 12/12

    Excellent overall quality! I'll be sure to be back when it's time for a new iphone.
    - Kirk

  • Awesome , 12/11

    The case looks great, guys. Thank you for what you do.

  • Amazing case, amazing service , 10/07

    Ordering from they uk I was fully aware of the fact it would most likely take a while to get here which I was okay with, however I received my order this morning which means it has come much earlier and faster than I thought which is brilliant! The case is gorgeous and cool, yet protective so it's perfect for me.

    To top it all off the fact I received a thank you card and that the case was signed by you guys just makes it all just that much more brilliant, also the written thank you on the receipt was sweet too! Thanks again so much it's so nice to see a company which treats their customers so well, will be ordering again for certain! - Sian M

  • Amazing case, amazing service , 10/07

    I live in the uk, so I knew full well this case would take a log time to get here, but I was wrong. It came today which is so fast an in perfect condition.

    To top off the brilliant delivery, the product is perfect, cool and not bulky but protective all the same. And what is really amazing is the thank you card and the fact the case is signed by you guys! I also had a written thank you on my receipt which is just so sweet, so thank you so much for the case I will buying again for certain! - Sian M

  • excellent , 09/11

    I received my order few days ago and I'm simply delighted - this is a wonderful company, great marketing and excellent products - we will buy again

  • not just cause i'm in construction: , 08/28

    while at a construction meeting we laughed as one acted like my phone disappeared on the big wooden conference table... handed it back with a smile and that's a cool case wink. my 2 boys also compliment my phone all the time. wait till they see their names carved on them soon as this will be my next purchase! I hv a black iphone so got the matte black case - excellent quality! - Nick D.

  • +23 awesomeness points , 07/19

    the Black Limba iPhone case has improved my life, and ability to attract the ladies, 50 fold. thank you carved..... thank you.

  • GREAT COVER!!!! , 07/16

    I received my Black Limba cover and it's AWESOME!!! Love the look it gives my phone and fits perfect in my belt holster. Well worth the money and it was delivered fast (just two days). Very Happy with the Case, it looks great. Really like the Black siding i got on my but will probably order another one down the road with the clear siding also. Both look great to me. Thanks.

  • Initial thoughts , 07/02

    I received my case roughly one week ago (today is July 2nd, 2013). The shipping was prompt, quick, and secure. The case was twice wrapped in bubble wrap; no damage, structural or cosmetic, upon arrival. The plastic case (matte white) snaps securely around my iPhone 4S. The case is comfortable to touch and does not fatigue your hand during long sessions of talking. The wood insert on the back has a beautiful grain ad a nearly perfect finish. If I did not woodwork occasionally, I may have never noticed the small imperfection with the lacquer.

    The case is beautiful. My carpenter father loves the case. I recommend the case.

    And hypothetically if the longevity of the case is short (1 to 2 years), it is a value purchase for the initial quality and low price.

  • Great Case , 07/02

    Not bulky, arrived ontime, got that small business feel from the follow ups and the cards. I wish all businesses were this friendly. Thanks for the case. Now I just need something to cover the front of my phone

  • Black Limba Case , 07/01

    The Black Limba iPhone 4s Case exceeded my expectations. The wood was darker then the picture depicts. The case is very slim and light however it doesn't offer much screen protection when the iPhone is face down, that would be my only bad remark regarding the case. Thank you Carved!

  • Excellent case! , 06/25

    I am very happy with my purchase. The case is a perfect size and looks great! It seems as if it will definitely last. Fantastic product!!

  • Too cool! , 05/23

    This is exactly what I was looking for. I was tired of the generic plastic iPhone covers, and this is the solution to that problem. The case fits and looks great. Thank you for making such a quality product!

  • Thanks for the woody! , 05/04

    This case turns heads and fits just right. The pattern is extra tasty and the pictures do NOT do the texture justice. And when the sun hits it? Like gold. Is practically perfect in every way.

  • Great experience , 04/24

    I was very impressed with the entire process with your company. From product selection all the way through delivery and follow up. The case is great too! I will be purchasing additional products from you in the future. Keep up the good work - you guys are doing it right. Thank you

  • Great quality and unique , 04/11

    Very happy with my purchase

  • Good fit and price , 03/23

    Do wish it had a little more gloss to it. Picture shows the wood with a satin type finish, mine is flat and almost feels unfinished. May do myself.

  • Gorgeous and practical , 03/20

    I previously owned a different wood stick-on cover but had to replace it along with the phone after it fell in water. This time I decided to try the hard case combo. I love it. It wasn't clear to me from the photos that the plastic is only on the sides of the phone so the wood is fully exposed. So you get additional protection of a hard case without any compromise to the aesthetic of the wood. I am very happy with the look of the black limba. The case arrived in just a few days. I can't say enough about Carved.

  • Love it! , 03/02

    I've ordered from Carved twice now, and both cases for my iPhone 4S are great. I didn't want to do a skin alone as I wanted to protect the phone, so the clear case with the skin is a great solution. Will definitely order again.

  • AWESOME , 02/28

    Very quick and courteous service is only as good as the product. I adore the new case. Fits snugly and elegantly. The wood is tactile and rewarding to touch. The plastic provides that much wanted protection against the inevitable pocket drop or table slam. Thank you Carved!

  • Beautiful and amazing quality , 02/19

    I got this as a present for my boyfriend. He loved it- the craftsmanship was amazing and the case was amazingly beautifil.

  • great! , 02/06

    it's really pretty, and fits like a dream!

  • love it! , 02/05

    i got this for my boyfriend for his bday, and although he hasn't seen it yet, i know he's going to love it, just as i do. the quality is great, the texture of the wood panel is legit, and it feels super resilient. i had been looking for a while for the best "wood" iPhone case and did a lot of research, and this is definitely the best one i found and the best price.

    thanks for this product, good job!

  • Nice work , 01/29

    The case fits my iphone 4s well. The wood edges are carved very precisely. Because the skin is thin, I was concerned about tears in the grain and wood fiber. I looked very closely at the corners to see any sign of breakage and did not find any. I don't believe you can get that kind of a result using routers or by hand. Fortunately, I have not dropped my phone yet, so I can't speak to durability but it looks and feels secure in the case. The finish is well applied and consistent, not splashed on unevenly. It's nice to buy a case featuring exotic wood that is made in the US for roughly the same price as the plastic Chinese cases that are found in Target & Walmart. Similar products are sold on etsy for more than double the price.

  • Birthday present , 01/25

    Received this case on time. It fulfilled my wishes. Very beautiful. Keep doing it! Greets from Belgium. X

  • Great case! , 01/21

    Received my order in just a few days. Case looks great. Very happy with it.

  • Great case , 01/19

    My new case look great and fits perfectly. My next phone will be covered in a Carved case. Thanks!

  • Great quality! , 01/12

    I love it! The real wood qualities shine perfectly! Very satisfies

  • Great Product , 11/16

    I really enjoy the entire line of Carved products, and I bought this to replace a skin from them. These clear cases are the best of both worlds, you get the great looks of the wood skin with some protection for your phone. I will definitely be ordering more to complete my collection.

  • First Time Buyer , 11/14

    Finally received my case today. Case looks good. Not exactly full of dark brown strips as i wanted by still looks good.
