Own a piece of history, a piece of the worlds' heritage! The foundations of Venice from Ancient Oak transformed into a handcrafted phone case.
Crowdfunded backed project to bring a one of a kind case to the world made from Ancient oak over five centuries old, like no other and found nowhere else.
THE PROBLEM OF VENICE, ITALY:
Venice is facing a crisis! Because the city is standing on water it's future is uncertain because of climate change and rising sea levels. The city is completely flooded numerous times a year and only increasing in number.
REDUCE, REUSE & RECYCLE:
An opportunity came by that we could use the material from the ancient discarded oak stakes used for foundations in Venice because they were not suitable anymore. Over time the ancient oak stakes that were exposed above sea level began to rot because microorganisms need oxygen to multiply. Instead of being thrown away we found a new way to use them. Over five centuries of sea water made their structure like no other and it is truly a sight to behold once held in hand.
If you want a fine and unique wooden case, you found it. Each case is oiled and finished by hand and made from the best and most exquisite wood. Each case is also unique because two pieces of wood are never the same and that’s why the carving can be slightly different. The case is warm and pleasant to the touch, very thin and rubber coated to prevent slipping.
