Drop Protection

The #WoodBack Explorer Case is a beautiful blend of technology and nature designed to give extra protection for your iPhone, 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 iPhone 12 Mini, 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!

Case - no response to Emails

I’ve tried on two occasions to email about returning the case for the correct iPhone case, however, I have had zero response from anybody. Great case. Wrong size.

Aishah Martins-Soares

So well made and sorts out the bulkiness issue I had with my phone due to the bulky camera on the 14 pro!! Now my phone lays down flat wherever I put it!! It’s a beautiful case to look at, the natural wood grain/pattern is gorgeous!! Also feels well protected and nice grip on the edges!! I’m in love… Thank you Cover-Up!!

Caleb Holloway

I love the finish on this case. The wood is beautiful and feels great. The texturing on the sides provides excellent grip and the case maintains a very slim profile. I am very pleased with my purchase.

iPhone 13 Pro — #WoodBack Explorer Black Case

Fantastic quality, good price and fast delivery. Can’t ask for more. This is also the first survey I have submitted on an email ever instead of a link to a website, which I probably wouldn’t have done, so thank you for doing it like this as it is so much easier!👊🏻

A very nice case with real wood

The case has been used for about a month. It’s a durable case with nice grip and it fits perfectly. And it looks great, the wooden back makes it unique and elegant. The only minor flaw of the case is that the side buttons are difficult to grope since they do not stick out at all. Nevertheless, it has no significant impact on usability. Definitely recommend the case.

I love it, it even smells of Transylvania. Super bit of kit.

Very Good Service and a Quality Product

Stunning as always

I've bought Carpathian Elm Burl cases three times now. Each wood pattern is unique on all them. Definitely extremely value for money, considering how functional and aesthetically pleasing the cases are.
