The #WoodBack Explorer Case is a beautiful blend of technology and nature designed to give extra protection for your Galaxy S8, to help it survive the most challenging of life’s adventures.

Combining a flexible rubber-like outer shell and durable polycarbonate body with a handmade real wood skin, each case is one of a kind. Just think of it as your very own work of art, all courtesy of Mother Nature.

Offering added impact protection, the lightweight case is moulded to precisely fit your Galaxy S8, guarding against drops, bumps and knocks, whilst allowing the real wood to take centre stage. Fully-covered edges and corners provide an extra layer of defence, while the specially textured sides give you added grip when you’re on the go. Not to be left out, a subtly raised bezel guards your screen against impact from drops and pesky scratches when placed face down.

Combining modern and traditional craftsmanship, each piece of wood is laser cut, before being hand-sanded (the good old fashioned way!) to create a super smooth exterior. Coated with a specially selected finish made from a blend of vegetable oils and waxes, the raw wood is given a subtle natural shine that allows it to age beautifully over time - with added protection from water and everyday dirt.

The perfect fusion of protection and style, the #WoodBack Explorer Case not only protects your technology but enhances it – naturally.

*All #WoodBacks are made from real wood so every skin or case will have a different and unique grain pattern. This means the #WoodBack you receive may look slightly different to the photograph. That is what makes your #WoodBack one of a kind!

I like the feel and look of natural materials. The wood grains has its own wonderful personality. Thank you, Abbie for producing this work of art.

Good case, but SLOOOOOOOW to ship

I completely understand about shipping delays and the holidays, but it took almost two weeks to even get "shipped" . Don't be fooled when you get that "It's on the way!" email. It took two weeks to go from "label created" to actually shipped. The case is nice and fits well but to be honest I only bought it from them because Carved did not carry cases for my phone anymore. I doubt I will be a repeat customer. Thanks.

Sadly I received the wrong size initially. After just 1 email I the correct case within a week.
Great quality product, sturdy yet looks very elegant :) !

Gift for my Husband

I bought this case for my husband as he loves doing woodwork. He has looked at alot of cases for his new phone but was not impressed with anything he saw until I showed him this case. He was actually excited to see it when it arrived in the mail. He loves the case. The wood is very masculine and the non slip grip is perfect. Also, the case fits perfectly. Thankyou for making such a great case. We appreciate the the time and effort that went into making this case.
