It’s true. Every year, millions of cell phones are manufactured and nada one is Made in the USA. But, at least, with cell phone cases, there’s plenty of American-made options. Leather, wood or airplane siding, choose your poison and enjoy making a local choice.
for your inner Navy Seal…
In a Roxform case, your phone can fall off ladders, get hit with bricks and run over by a 7500 lb truck, and be just fine. And, parents, testimonies claim these cases even withstand teething six-month-olds. Founded by vets of the power sports industry in Santa Ana, CA, high tech manufacturing methods and material (Aircraft Grade Aluminum included) render these cases invincibly shock proof. We really like Roxform mobile cases because you can customize them using photographs of your choosing. Roxform makes their cases in the USA.

Time to bring out the leather. Grovemade, a team of 20 crafters in Portland, OR, combine local wood and vegetable-tanned leather into a wallet phone case that holds credit cards, cash and phone. We just love the convenience of this phone case! They also create refined Walnut and Maple wood cases, and if you’re in the neighborhood, they’ll even offer tours of their workshop.

We hadn't seen or heard of this before, but we love it! More from the industrious Oregonians…it’s the wallet phone case + a sketch book. Cool, integrated and so very left brain-right brain of them. Sourcing high-quality, traditional made in America materials, theGoodbook comes with two sketch books. Handcrafted in Portland, OR.

What would you get if you set up Fun and Function on a blind date in Hollywood, and they actually liked each other? The jimmy CASE. Made in East Los Angeles, California, the wood core is made from military-grade Mahogany and the woven elastic band can stretch to hold six cards and bounces back every time. There’s loads of cool band colors to choose from too.
