In front of the bamboo house where we were staying, sitting on the grass with monkeys and parrots squawking in the trees above, and a warm ocean beach in front, I looked at the expensive but now raggedy cover on my iPhone with the paper thin, faux leather starting to peel away from the cardboard that provided the structure of the wallet case, and I thought "This can be better."
I’m one of those guys who can’t have nice things. If I took my iPhone out of the wallet case. inevitably, the iPhone would pop out of my hand like a slick bar of soap and crack the glass or worse.
But keeping the iPhone in the wallet case that I had felt like I was hiding a Picasso inside the trunk of a rusty old Dodge Pinto.
So what to do? .... And that’s when Covered Planet was born.
Our goal is simple. Make the world’s best leather iPhone wallet cases.
Why leather? It adds just the right amount of grip and protection, and the leather, as it wears, becomes art, growing darker and more textured every day that you use it. (things should getter with more use, not worse, right?)
Why a wallet case? Life is too short to spend time looking for the two critical pieces - your wallet and your phone - you need to start your day, and a wallet case efficiently consolidates these two pieces into one rugged piece of menswear that’s easy to remember and easy to use.
So that's a little bit about how we came to be. Thanks for your interest, and we appreciate your business!
Please let us know what we can do better!
