  • [GIVEAWAY] PEACHii iBooKas - Bamboo for your iPhone


    In our third PEACHii review in the past week or so, we're taking a look at their iBooKas, an all-bamboo case perfectly machined for your iPhone 4 or 4S.

    Designed in Florida, and "made in a sweaty shop" according to the engraved text on the inside of the case, we've become big fans of the stuff Nick from PEACHii and his crew make. Over the past couple weeks I and my wife have both been using the iBooKas around town, and get a lot of compliments on them.

    These pieces are nice in their unique look - wood cases (ok, ok, we know bamboo is TECHNICALLY a grass) are rare, and this one fits perfect on the device and looks good, too.



    Precision machined from a single piece of bamboo, all the necessary cutouts are on the case to allow you to access the various buttons and ports of the iPhone 4 or iPhone 4S (the SIM tray is not accessible with the case on; the though being it is used rarely). The back also has an circular opening where the Apple logo shows through.

    There are also indentations cut in where your fingers and palm tend to gravitate to on the case, making for a solid, contoured grip. The warmth of wood makes a nice step away from the hard plastic or metal most cases offer. Each case is hand-sanded and finished with an oil blend before getting to you.

    Getting your device in and out of the case is simple, but snug enough you're not worried it's going anywhere. You can simply bend the bamboo (VERY slightly, please) just a tad as your putting the phone into the case, and it snaps in with a satisfying feel.



    The iBooKas comes in a few colors - natural (pictured standing up in the first photo in this review), carbonized (a browner color), or marbled (a combination of the two). They don't add much thickness to the device (you know you've got a case on, but it's still thin), and run $49.99 each on the PEACHii website. Give an average of a week before it ships, as PEACHii is busy!



    The guys at PEACHii were cool enough to hook us up with a giveaway iBooKas, so feel free to leave a comment here with your bamboo thoughts or experience, and we'll pick a winner to send one of these to tomorrow!

      This has got to be one of the best looking cases out right now. For me its either this case or just not use one since the iphone is such a nice looking phone anyway.

      I would love a bamboo case. These things look sweet. Not to mention I've been debating getting a wooden case for a while because I have a ghetto fabulous rubber one that doesn't really fit.

      The bamboo cases definitely seem like they would spark a lot of unique conversations with friends, family, and strangers alike. I do wonder how durable they would be though and how much protection they provide. None the less, I'd be interested in walking around with one (I won't be testing my protection questions, rest assured).

      actually, this is one of the most successful iPhone 4/4S case Series ever! I mean, using bamboo for the material means that this case WILL actually protect your iphone like never before, try picking a bamboo stick and try to break it as many pieces you can, and you'll see how hard this material is. As student for Chemistry I would highly get one of these, because when you study some materials, it means you know how strong will be, or maybe when could break up. And come on, after seeing all of that cases made of plastic, or even metal, all of them are one-color boringness, few people realize how to make case very stylish and great looking this days. the wood finish of this case make your iphone looks like an antique and bring some extra coolness on the iphone itself. Give 10 of 10 at this case!

      These cases are of amazing quality. They're well crafted and they provide great protection on top of that. They're quite beautiful to have around the house!

      This case is AWESOME. Ever since my 3GS I have always used an otter box defender series. The only problem with that is that the case is so bulky and takes away from the unbeatable design of the iPhone 4 and 4s. This case is something that I need, and if I could win one for free it would only be that much better. Thanks ModMyi Team.

      Bamboo grows very quickly so if it fits your phone perfectly when you get it, it will probably be to big the following day....

      Looks cool and more importantly, it is a different taste compared to other generic cases. Keep up the good work!
