From Cultural Carved Cases to Timber Smartphone Accessories

 - Sep 23, 2012
There have been an increase in manufacturers and companies using wood to make wooden phone products. From smartphone cases to actual phones made from wood, adding a wooden feel to your devices somehow makes one feel a little bit more connected to the earth.

The sad thing is that it actually does the exact opposite, cutting down trees to make products that are so widely used is not a step in the right direction. Nonetheless, this collection of wooden phone designs has been filled with some interesting products that give your iPhone or smartphone a great timbered look.

Be sure to take a look at the Maple phone, which is a compact wooden phone that has touch-sensitive buttons. Hopefully companies will start to use fake wood in the future so we can keep our trees.
