  • the story

Global Mobile

This extraordinary iPhone case gets its warm, earthy look from natural wood. The world map on its surface is actually crafted from precision-cut, hand-inlayed wood, and the rich colors are not stains or paint, but the natural appearance of each variety used. The completed panel is finished with a protective coat that helps to preserve and highlight the materials. The panel is attached to a clear plastic case that helps to protect your phone, and keeps the screen up off of surfaces. Made by John and Grant in Elkhart, Indiana.

      I love this case! I got the cover for my iPhone 4s and 5s. Unfortunately, I will be getting the new iPhone 6. Will the maker of this case be making cases to fit the iphone 6 or 6 plus???

        This is such a gorgeous iPhone case- the design is incredible! I was smitten with it as soon as I saw it. Unfortunately (SO unfortunately) I need to return it because it simply will not provide enough protection for my iPhone. If it had rubber lining and corner protection, I would feel better about using it. So so sad!

            I bought this for my world traveling adult son. He has everything and I struggle to get him gifts. He opened the gift and was really impressed with the wooden inlay. It is very cool looking and holds up well.

                  Bought this as a birthday gift for my man. He is into geography and LOVES it! Fits his iPhone 4 perfectly, it's not bulky at all, very slim and the sides are clear, looks cool. Stays on well. The wood pieces are flush to the case, look well-made and of high quality. He took off the old case and put this one on right away and said a few times how cool it is! Couldn't be more pleased. Well worth the price.

                  This is my third iphone cover of this kind. I have given 2 of the puzzle ones as gifts (on one occasion the word pieces began to warp when the cover came in contact with a wet surface). Otherwise very nice and classy cover with beautiful real wood. Each is unique, which extends to the quality as well. The finishes are inconsistent but i guess that adds to the charm. First case had a glossy finish, the second had a better pattern but a matte finish (gave it the appearance of being unfinished) and then i got tge world map one for myself. I assumed the islands would be inlaid with wood as well (giving it more contrast) but they werent and its not sealed so it feels a little unfinished but perhaps im just being picky. Overall i am happy with my purchase

                            I ordered this for a friend's birthday and it was absolutely beautiful. I'm an Android person but I have seen at least a dozen cases on my friend's iPhone. This is something he would use but it's also very unique that it's made of authentic wood. This isn't the most practical case as far as screen protection or durability but it's well-constructed and looks great!

                                The world map pattern on this case is definitely pretty, but what's even more impressive is that the colors are all natural! Take a look at the product story to see how colors and textures come together to create this smart, sophisticated smartphone case, then let us know whether it has your vote.

                                Great! Very attractive and a perfect gift for a man. Not that a woman couldn't use it, but most cases tend to appeal more to women. This isn't so girly.

                                Very nice positioning with the space for the camera lens and microphone open.

                                Not my taste.But they are on top of the iphone 5 which is cool seeing as most companies are slow at making neat cases that will fit the iphone 5.
