Initially I was based in Sweden 15:21the cases in natural cork on this list, but they are not that easy to buy in the United States and the custodians in Similarly styled Woodpeckery cork cost much less. Note that these are slim cases that aren’t incredibly protective, even if the edges are slightly raised on the corners a help protect your screen from cracks should you drop it (other cases offer more corner protection). Also, the bottom of the case covers half of the bottom of your phone rather than leaving it fully exposed, which it is good.
