I know I had so, when the folks at Issential offered to send me a real leather case for my iPhone 5 I jumped at the chance. After all, Issential is a French luxury mobile device accessory designer, offers stylish and elegant cases made from genuine leather for most mobile devices so I expected something really classy.
Right from the start the black box housing my Ultra Slim Prestige case looks first class but, it gets better, slide the box open and you will find a pure white cloth pouch housing the case. The second I slid the case out of the bag I realized why I like real leather so much..you can’t beat that soft buttery feel and then there is the smell..nothing smells like genuine leather.
I couldn’t wait to wrap my iPhone 5 in this beautiful soft case..I chose red just because I like the colour..it is available in 10 other colours. It is a simple process..the phone just snaps into the rigid back section which grips the iPhone firmly then snap the flip cover closed. The cover is padded producing a pillow effect. Now the the phone is warmly wrapped it is time to admire this case…the soft leather is highlighted with nice stitching around the edges and the Issential logo graces the bottom right of the cover. As light as the case feels it offers solid protection in case you drop the phone.
Now you would expect to pay a small fortune for such a luxury real leather iPhone 5 case. Well think again, this case sells for $59.90 which is about average for a good case and shipping from France to Canada and the US via FedEx is a surprisingly reasonable $9.90.
You can order Issential cases from the company’s online store and you may want to browse around for other luxury accessories for your mobile devices.
