What is a burl? Great question, I'm glad you asked. A burl is a protrusion that typically grows on the roots of trees. The burl is formed when a tree has undergone some type of stress and is often not seen until the tree has died or fallen over, exposing the roots. The ethical harvesting of these burls results in a beautifully figured wood that we craft into unique, one of a kind phone cases.

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.
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.
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!
This is my favorite case of all time. The walnut burl is gorgeous and feels very well-made. I catch myself touching the case just to feel the wood grain . The textured sides are a shade abrasive but I'm used to it and it never feels like it's going to slip out of my hand. From now on I'll be checking for a case on Carved.com before I buy a new device, it's a requirement.
Great looking case! Walnut Burl is very unique and has garmered lots of attention and compliments. Only things I don't like are the lack of raised buttons for the power and volume, and the front of the cover is flush with my screen - which means if I place my phone face down, to show off the case, the screen is laying on the tabletop. Neither is a deal breaker, the case looks amazing and is worth the minor inconveniences.
I have had the case for about 2 weeks now.
1. It's thin and minimal so it doesn't make my phone feel bulkier than it should be.
2. Sturdy and easy to grip.
3. The wood grain I ordered is to my expectations.
4. Looks good just laying around.
