New Zealand Paua Shell
Galaxy S8 Plus Traveler Protective Case



One of the best things about working with natural materials is the unique differences between each piece. We first added seashells just as small inlay pieces but they were so beautiful, we just made an entire case out of them. This is Paua Shell from New Zealand. Take it out in the sun and see how it shimmers and shines as you move it around. Slim design without sacrificing protection, minimum bulk. Protect against minor mishaps. This case is perfect for the person who wants some extra protection for their phone without having a super bulky case. Hand finished real seashell cover, combined with a bumper case. Flexible rubber sides easily wrap around all four sides of your phone to better protect against minor mishaps. Not too bulky, just a simple case designed to help protect and show off both your Galaxy S8 Plus and the beautifully finished seashell. The Traveler case features wide openings for your cables and a raised lip to protect your phone when it's face down. Made to order and hand-crafted by Carved in Elkhart, Indiana.

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. We hand finish and sand every piece to create a natural, smooth feel.


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!

Not Long Lasting

Review for: New Zealand Paua Shell - Galaxy S8 Plus Traveler Protective Case

This is a beautiful case. The phone heats up and loosens the glue. It becomes sticky, tacky feeling. It has not peeled yet, but I expect it to at any moment.

Love it!
Review for: New Zealand Paua Shell - Galaxy S8 Plus Traveler Protective Case

I recently purchased a wood cover from Carved, that I love. I ordered this one because the picture looked so unique and beautiful. Did not disappoint when received. I get so many compliments on it. Thank you! Will order again and again.

Great product

Review for: New Zealand Paua Shell - Galaxy S8 Plus Traveler Protective Case

I ordered this case for my mom's Samsung Galaxy s8 plus, and she loves it! The price a bit high, but the design and build quality is worth the price you pay. The only complaint I have is that I didn't order me a Carved case. If the case I got fails or just get tired of it, I will buy a Carved case for myself. Would definitely recommend these products.

Nice Case
Review for: New Zealand Paua Shell - Galaxy S8 Plus Traveler Protective Case

This case is great! It's stylish most of all. Protects phone pretty well but I may be switching to an Otter Box Commuter for some added protection.
