New Zealand Paua Shell
Galaxy S8 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 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.

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!

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

The color is different from the photo. It is not as peachy/pinky as it appears but is still beautiful. I love the natural characteristics of the shell combined with the fine craftsmanship of piecing the shells together. Gorgeous and high quality. This is well worth the money especially in comparison to cases that only have the image of shells printed on them. I am very satisfied with this product.

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

I love the unique case . I too am an artist so I appreciate the talent. I got the case 3 days after ordering . Fast and efficient communication. Price was a little high but I support companies such as this. I will definitely recommend this company. The packaging was really cool too this fits my taste perfectly. Thank you

Great but not perfect
Review for: New Zealand Paua Shell - Galaxy S8 Traveler Protective Case

This case looks and feels great and is certainly going to stand out. Only fault i could find is that the parts where the buttons are is flat so it's virtually impossible to feel where you need to press. Minor issue but it's also a little annoying and takes away from the premium feel of the case which other wise feels premium. The back has a smooth finish which i didn't expect. I thought it would be textured / rugged which i think would of given it that custom feel. None the less iam happy over all and would order again despite the fact they are a little pricey. I also appreciate the effort put into the packaging etc As a business owner myself. Small things like this go a long way.
