One evening I was in need of a bit of distraction. For my work I had some very nice leather lying around. I used black Salamander (legally obtained) for the front, brown catfish leather for the back and white Salamander for the apple logo! Inside I used a soft chamois leather so whenever I take out the phone it's totally shiny! I padded the case with 2mm closed cell rubber. Nice, flexible and bouncy! I wish I was better at stitching. But going through 4 layers of leather is not easy! I guess I will not be returning the phone!
