Strada by Orbino

Posted on July 17, 2007 Under Gadgetry

Like every other non-owner of an iPhone, I am beyond sick of hearing about how beautiful this piece of economically elitist technology is, but even so I couldn't resist sharing this gorgeous hand made Italian leather iPhone case by Orbino called the Strada. The palladium clip can be removed and is spring loaded so you can email or change songs or just fiddle with your phone so people notice it and see how cool you are without removing it from your belt; it can also be used to make a stand on your desk if you want to watch a movie. The leather, which comes in calfskin, soft napa, and exotic skins, is stitched so it fits perfectly around the phone and unbuttons on the bottom for easy dock access. It comes in a variety of natural colors but if you don't find one you like, you can have it custom colored, along with being monogrammed. Nauseating, or disgustingly good-looking? The answer will probably fall depending on which side of the fence you’re camped out on.
