This is the 2nd iPhone case by Proporta that I’m reviewing (see the 1st review – a Recycled Leather and Hessian iPhone Case), which is a mobile phone pouch for the iPhone 3GS made from hessian fibre. Your iPhone just slides into the case like a little sock. Simple, but effective.
This case also comes with a laser-cut bamboo sheet that’s designed to protect the screen of the iPhone by slipping into the pocket of the pouch. The bamboo doesn’t add any weight to the case really, but the case does feel appreciably more robust once the bamboo sheet is installed. You just need to slip the phone out of the case when you want to use the phone.
So in terms of being eco-friendly, the case is made from sustainable hessian fibre (fibre from a vegetable plant) as well as sustainable bamboo for the screen protector. The only slightly negative aspect was that the case came in a plastic bag, although it was recyclable! It’s a really nice case, and is my favourite out of the two cases that I reviewed.
The case is available directly from Proporta for £19.95 plus delivery. Again, I felt that this was a little expensive, and I would have expected the case to cost around £14 to £16.
Thanks again to Proporta for the sample to review.
