That Good Wood

iWürk cases are built to last

There are 1001 ways to personalize your Apple products running the gamut from shiny crystals to colorful animal skins. Now there’s intricately texturized wood covers for that earth-tech connect.

Würkin Stiffs, the innovative menswear brand best known for its magnetic collar stays, recently unveiled its iWürk collection of cases for iPads ($135) and iPhones ($85). A laser etches classic patterns such as argyle and houndsooth on bamboo and walnut, and the covers are made with a layer of felt between the wood and your device to keep it from scratching. (This is a good thing - we hear that an iPhone with a splinter is impossibly cranky.)

Grab them at wurkinstiffs.com.
