With Father’s Day approaching, the perennial problem of what present to buy rears its head. Fathers are notoriously tricky to shop for and finding a gift that they will use and appreciate can seem a Herculean task. Enter Greenwich Design with their high tech, handcrafted, luxury phone cases.
At first glance a phone case might seem an ordinary gift. Most cases appear to fall into one of two camps. There are the protective ones that resemble breeze blocks and conceal all traces of a phone’s sleek design. Or, there are the cases that are stylish and slim, but breath in the wrong direction and the result can be a cracked screen.
Greenwich Design have been creating technology accessories for over 20 years and in the process have accumulated considerable expertise. Their cases marry luxury with innovative features resulting in a case that will appeal to the technology minded and practical Father, as well as the Dad who appreciates the finer things in life.
With their ethos, handcrafted to the last stitch, Greenwich Design approach their cases in the same way a tailor creates a bespoke suit. The leather is the jumping off point. Full grain nappa bullhide from Southern Germany, reared with care to be virtually blemish free. The resulting leather, with its impeccable aesthetic, is so soft and durable that Bentley Motors upholster their incredible cars with it.
The luxurious leather, complemented with hand stitching and craftsmanship, is the key to the slim, precise feel of a Greenwich Design folio case. This elegant and form fitting exterior conceals a wealth of cutting edge features which enhance phone usability and provide serious levels of protection.
Starting with a carbon fibre panel concealed in the cover that is so strong it will stop a shotgun blast, yet so light, as to be barely noticeable. It also safeguards against excess pressure on the phone screen.
Providing another layer of protection is an injection moulded polycarbonate shell. This is precision engineered to hold the phone in place as well as giving full access to all buttons and ports. A hidden ferrous metal plate in the front flap allows the folio case to be mounted on the minimalist Greenwich magnetic car mount.
The smartphone case also boasts a cleverly designed recessed credit card slot which ensures the case sits flush when closed. The slot has a subtle chamfer that allows the card to slide in and out with ease and provides RFID protection against contactless credit card fraud. The strong closure magnets ensure the case stays closed when it needs to but also holds the front flap out of the way when the device is in use.
Not only do all of Greenwich Design’s cases feature the finest leather and latest innovations, they come in a myriad of colours. Perhaps Scarlet Red for the English rugby supporter or Ferrari fan; maybe Beluga or Saddle to coordinate with a favourite pair of shoes; or Canary Yellow to make a statement.
For the father who has an eye for design, and an ear for music, consider the Evening Sands cases. Produced in collaboration with Burntaxe who are known for their custom guitar designs. This collection features their signature laser etchings, producing a truly bespoke phone case. The Burntaxe Greenwich phone cases are highly sought after. The Collection is not only available from Greenwich Design’s website but also in Harrods where it is a best seller.
Further personalising their phone cases as a Father’s Day gift, Greenwich Design offer debossed engraving so you can add that personal touch by adding the recipient’s initials. Ordering is a simple click on their website and the phone case will arrive beautifully gift wrapped in their signature textured black box, complete with a leather care kit. Greenwich Design accessories all come with a no quibble lifetime warranty. And from May 20th to June 16th Greenwich Design are offering free personalisation on all orders.
When choosing a gift for a father it needs to tick a few a boxes. A phone case from Greenwich Design will not only be used and appreciated but will fondly call to mind the gift giver with every phone call and text. Not many Father’s Day presents can do that.
