Orbino luxury iPhone cases
Joining the quickly-growing ranks of iPhone accessory makers is Orbino, which has launched its Strada line of luxury cases. Each case is made of genuine Italian leather and crafted by hand, from the waxed stiching through to the burnished edges and four coats of polish. Openings give immediate access to all the ports and controls on a phone, and the cases are all deliberately rounded, which not only makes them easier to handle but reduces the likelihood of splitting over time. Orbino is in fact guaranteeing each Strada for the life of an iPhone. A clip on the back doubles as both a belt attachment and a desk stand. Cases in five different leathers are now available, at prices ranging from $100 to $320.
