iPhone 5 - "Sweater" Case

Choose Material
  • White

    White nylon plastic polished to reveal a smooth matte finish.


You don’t have to sacrifice style when protecting your iPhone. This case resembles the charm of a “Sweater” but is protected by advanced science.

Handwoven by robots, the cross stitching can move separately from each other creating an awesome tactile feel while acting like mini shock absorbers that protects your phone.

On the Shapeways website, this case is only available in “white” polished nylon without stain blocking protective coating. Before you use the case, I recommend that you apply this coating (not included with the case). This will help protect the case from ordinary stains.

On the ArtizanWork website (www.artizanwork.com), this case is available in 4 colors – white, red, grey, and black. All cases sold from this site are polished and sealed with our protective coating. The prices will be higher on the Artizanwork website due to the additional hand finishing of the cases with the protective coating.

Bdickason, thanks for the comment. No plans at this time but we will revisit it again in about a month. P.S. I just updated from a i3 to an i5 about 1 month ago. I love my new phone. Cheers, Marlon

That's awesome and very elastic! Do you have the 4S version to buy? Still keeping my old model.

I've got near the same case for my iPhone 4S. Looks like a lot to the Janne Kyttanen design : http://www.freshfiber.com/products/iphone-4s/maille/ Your case is more expensive than the original
