This is just sexy, convenient, practical and classy.

I like the design and functionality so you don’t have to carry a wallet AND a phone. Its just in one well designed package. Great for going out with only the essentials on weekends when you don’t want too many clumpy things in your pockets.

The specs are below;

» Phone is cushioned between two layers of felt
» Snug leather pocket holds up to 2 credit cards
» Slide your phone out by squeezing the bottom
» Asphalt grey 100% wool felt
» Hazelnut brown 100% vegetable tanned leather
» Also fits Blackberry Bold 9700 and Curve 8900

This product was made using leather that has been tanned with natural vegetable dyes. Various textures and irregularities in colour and shade add value to the appearance and make every single piece of leather unique.
