Kickflip With a Recycled $200 Skateboard Deck iPhone Case

There are just five of Grove + MapleXO's skateboard deck iPhone 4 cases left, of the ultra-limited edition 50 piece range. Made over the course of a year, 300 skateboards were slices and sanded-down into layered strips, and constructed into cases. Pretty tricky craftsmanship, to say the least.

With 50 per cent of the proceeds going to the Oregon Humane Society, they're all in excess of $200 now on eBay. One is even at $485—with four days left to go! These aren't your average cases, as I'm sure their new owners will constantly repeat to anyone asking why they spent so much on a wrapper for their cellphone.
