A Different Kind of iPhone Case from Diffr3nt

Steve Jobs encouraged us to Think Different, and at least one company has named themselves after this motto. They even spelled it differently, as in "diffr3nt." Their name isn't the only thing different. Their products are made in the USA, which is certainly different. They use unconventional materials, like canvas for their iPhone cases. And the inside of the case is lined with a grippy rubber material that looks like it came from an inner tube. All of this goes together to make a compact, comfortable, and colorful case that nobody else is likely to have.


Another nice touch on their Wallet model is a slot on the back for credit cards or ID. It's definitely a handmade item, and I'm not sure how it would hold up. Some of the edges could fray and unravel. But in reality, before the case wears out, I'm more likely to upgrade to a new phone, which won't likely fit. Fortunately, diffr3nt offers various coupons if you like them on Facebook or follow them on Twitter.
