Cover-up Natural Wood Computer and Phone Case

For the nature lover in your life, these natural wood MacBook computer and smartphone covers are the perfect holiday gifts. Handcrafted in Wales, UK, each one is completely unique made from natural materials like a variety of woods, stone and shell. Combining modern and traditional craftsmanship, each piece of wood is laser cut, before being hand-sanded (the good old fashioned way!) to create a super smooth exterior. Coated with a specially selected finish made from a blend of vegetable oils and waxes, the raw wood is given a subtle natural shine that allows it to age beautifully over time – with added protection from water and everyday dirt. All #WoodBacks are made from real wood so every skin or case will have a different and unique grain pattern.
