Groovemade iPhone 6 Case “Walnut” Collection


It didn't take long after the announcement of the launch of Apple's iPhone 6 for companies to drop some innovative cases. For a design-focused, refined case with greater functionality, turn to Groovemade. 

The “Walnut” collection includes three different designs. The first is a case crafted from ultra-thin Oregon Claro Walnut with a unique precision joint design, the backplate adheres easily to the phone, and the smart engineering of the case means putting it on and taking it off are a breeze. 

The Walnut & Leather Case follows the design of the previous one but with the addition of a premium leather cover which folds over, doubling as a stand. The last and most minimal case of the three is a simple bumper case, designed to add a subtle amount of style while increasing strength and durability.
