Natural - New Zealand Paua Seashell Phone Case

$45, Ships Free!


Unique to New Zealand, this shell is harvested from southern coastlines home to great white sharks. Also known as blackfoot paua, New Zealand Paua or Abalone is the most colorful abalone shell. Its iridescent nacre features various blues and greens with flashes of pink and purple.

Once discovered by free-divers in cold waters, these precious shells are loosened by hand. Most New Zealand Abalone divers wear data loggers to record their area of harvest, and quantities brought to shore are limited by the Total Allowable Commercial Catch (TACC) set by the Ministry of Primary Industries. This quota is updated annually with guidance from industry research groups to ensure sustainability.

  • Made with responsibly harvested New Zealand Paua seashell
  • Precision Laser Cut
  • Made At Our Shop In Elkhart, Indiana

The iPhone 7 Plus Cases Collection

Simple, unique & protective phone case.

Our Traveler case is everything you need for your phone. We've made it our mission to produce the most unique and original phone cases you've ever seen. We love using natural materials like wood and seashell to create small pieces of art for your phone. We worked hard to find the perfect balance of a protective case and a minimal feel and we think you're going to love it!


How protective is it?

A Carved Phone Case isn't just a pretty face. The outer rubberized shell on each of our cases will keep your phone safe and protected from day to day drops and bumps. We worked hard to find the perfect balance of a protective case and a minimal feel.

We could put a fancy badge here, or make up some snazzy name for our "exclusive" technology, but we think there is one simple way to answer this question.

Almost everyone who works at Carved uses one of our cases on their personal phones. We didn't just design this case to sell it to you, we designed it to use it ourselves.

Watch the unboxing...

At Carved we sell one of a kind products that come in useful packaging. As a product designer and manufacturer, it's really important to us that we minimize waste in all that we do.

Watch our unboxing process to see everything you get when you buy a Carved phone case!

Works with Wireless Chargers

Our phone cases are slim enough that they will work fine with most standard wireless chargers (including ours!). Some wireless chargers don't have their charging coil very close to their surface though, if this is the case you may notice your phone not charging consistently and you may need to remove the case to charge consistently.

Completely Unique!

We love working with natural materials because each finished case we make is unique. The grain pattern will react beautifully to lighting changes. The product you receive may have a slightly different pattern than what is pictured. It will be one of a kind.

Natural Feel & Finish

Our finishing process is non-toxic and maintains a natural look and feel to the material. This is an amazing finish that ensures your new case will look great for years to come. Our finish is very hard and will protect the back of your phone against most scratches.

Why do some photos look different?

Our products are made using natural materials which will never be exactly the same and will react to lighting changes. Every case will have a different and unique 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 real materials! Your 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!

Awesome Case and Team!

I just got my case and I am very happy about it. However, there are 2 small holes and I was scared that cracks might start on it so I emailed the team about it and got a reply the following day. They offered me to choose a new case and gave me a discount code which is worth this paua shell case. I chose the satellite casing and just added a few dollars for it (cos I miss my old phone with carved satellite case that was stolen unfortunately). I'm just waiting for it to be delivered and I am very excited! Overall, I love their cases and I wish to thank the team for their exceptional customer service.

I was expecting a more durable case when I ordered. I wish it provided a little more resistance against drops and other accidents. Overall, I love the case and have gotten several compliments.

Very pretty! but...

It's really a gorgeous case, looks even better in person! The only thing I'd change is that I wish the buttons were raised even a little bit so I can locate them without having to actually look at the side of my phone to find the right one. I keep hitting the wrong volume button or missing entirely because I can't feel the buttons at all and that's quickly become fairly annoying. I'm probably going to have to scratch some texture into the buttons myself to fix it and I wish I didn't have to deliberately damage a brand new case to make it functional. 5 stars for beauty minus one for the design.

This phone case is so beautiful and illuminating. Of course I purchase a phone case to help protect my phone but I am so happy with my purchase, I want to protect my case! Good fit, side buttons are functional through the case and I do like the bit of raise it has around the camera lens. Good job guys!
