The story of Grove iPhone cases is, well, legendary but you wouldn’t know it till you read it. (The guys underplayed it but that’s how good they are!)

Grove released the iPhone 5/5s Bamboo cases for pre-order on September 5th, and ever since the release of iPhone 5, the cases have been doing pretty good, we hear. The strange combination of plant composite that feels like plastic and the bamboo outer-shell makes these bamboo cases a unique experience in itself. They’ve grown insanely popular right now and their catalog and product range is growing fast.

There are plenty of options in Grove iPhone 5 bamboo cases. From a plain bamboo case to custom-made engravings on the bamboo case, you can have it all. (As on writing this, the shipping for iPhone 5 cases is two weeks).

The good thing about these cases is that it’s all made of natural material:

Price Range

  • A plain bamboo iPhone 5 case sells for $79.
  • An engraved bamboo case sells for $99.
  • And a custom engraving, with your own design, sells for $129.

You can engrave the cases with some text too (Monogram).
The engravings can be on the back (top), back (bottom) and on the sides, with each engraving costing $14.99.

Flash is an ultra simple and neat engraved bamboo case for the iPhone 5 which makes your camera look like the source of a thousand rays springing outwards. Well, not exactly but I liked the idea. A $99 on this one looks a bit costly but hey, it’s a craft anyway.
