PROCESS: THE PHONE CARD CASE

The Phone / Card Case has been a Francli essential since we started our workshop 5 years ago. A minimal solution to stuffed pockets and losing important bits to the depths of a bag. Something to  give us quick access while on-the-go, run around 'hands-free' and prevent cracked screens (top camping tip - turn on the torch and face out the pouch for a night light!)

We chose a durable leather that's processed with only natural minerals and vegetable tanning agents. A much more eco-friendly method than chrome tanning that is recyclable and features more natural animal characteristics. This tanning process leaves an evolving quality to the finish, darkening gradually with exposure to sunlight.

An every-day essential to keep your phone and cards safe that becomes uniquely yours as you use it
