We’re in a world where we find ourselves carrying our iPhones as much as our wallets, but this has got many of us asking: do we need both? Many companies have answered this by joining the trend of wallet-phone cases, with the latest coming from Bellroy; known for their high degree of quality and sensibility in lifestyle wallets.
Traditional meets contemporary with the new Bellroy 1-3 card ‘wallet’ cases, a slim case which wraps your iPhone in leather (back & sides) while giving you the ability to slide in up to 3 cards. It is both an elegant and easy solution to carry your iPhone in your pocket. Bellroy are well known for their slim wallets, and it’s clear they’re bringing that philosophy to these new cases. It’s almost hard to believe they’ve managed to get 3 cards in while keeping it slim.
We really focused on materials for the phone case. A microfiber lining cushions your phone and a polycarbonate shell adds grip. Both pair nicely with our vegetable-tanned leathers to create a case that uses the best material for the job at hand. ‐ Joe, Bellroy Designer
It’s important to be able to get access to our cards quickly and easily – Bellroy have come up with one of the best solutions I’ve seen in an iPhone wallet case so far. A simple, angled square cut out at the back isn’t just there to look cool, swiping your thumb over the cut out will slide your cards with ease. This clever design creates a sensible way to carry all your essentials, such as your I.D., bank card or even an Opal Card for us Sydney siders.
It’s clear Bellroy spent a long time getting the design right, with the product designer of Belroy sharing the design process on Twitter:
