Since 2009, Native Union has prided themselves on generating high quality products that stand out from the norm. The Native Union product lineup ranges from Bluetooth telephones and speakers, to iPhone cases. We must say, that their products are innovative, intriguing and flat-out ingenious.
As we were browsing the halls of the Las Vegas Convention Centre, we stopped at the Native Union booth where we spoke with John Brunner, the Managing Director for Native Union. John gave us the rundown on the CLIC Wooden iPhone 5/5s case, Gripster Wrap, and the Switch speaker.
NATIVE UNION CLIC WOODEN IPHONE 5/5S CASE
The Native Union CLIC Wooden iPhone case is quite different from cases we have seen in the past. To start, the iPhone case is extremely light and flexible, which makes case removal very easy. The iPhone fits very comfortably within the case, as the edges of the case stop at the bezel near the side of the iPhone screen, this provides a very minimalistic look that is often hard to find.
The main aspect of the CLIC Wooden case, the cherry wood finish that is on the back of the case, is 100% real wood. This is really quite different from other cases that we have seen in the past, as it usually quite apparent that the wood is not real.
John showed us a variety of different CLIC Wooden cases, and each one features a different piece of wood, with grains running in all different directions. This means that there is not one Native Union CLIC Wooden case that matches another.
Additionally, over time the cherry wood finish will change to a darker shade of tan due to natural touch and the outside environment, which will just add extra personality to your case.
The CLIC Wooden comes in five different colors: white, aquamarine, black, green and orange. A quick check on Amazon shows that the CLIC Wooden has a MSRP of $49.99. This is slightly higher than your average iPhone case, but it is important to keep in mind that this is an extremely personal and unique case, that will change over time. That is a trait, which is very uncommon and hard to come by.
