The engraved Material6 wooden iPhone cover adds a uniquely personalized touch to the iPhone.

Each backing runs at upwards of $89 a pop with the option to have a personalized design etched onto it for $5. Material6 created a template to be used to design each backing, and their Flickr page is loaded with past examples to use for inspiration.

Made from South American Rosewood and Ebony Macassar, the woody backings don’t sit over top of the phone, but rather, replace the original back. The backing comes equipped with a screwdriver, so it can be snapped onto a phone quickly and easily. The company uses wood veneers as they are more ecologically friendly and resistant to damage and moisture than solid wood.

The engraved cover is sure to add some distinction and flair to one’s smartphone.
