Vaja introduced its new Nuova Pelle, a beautiful minimalist cover-like case for the iPhone 5 similar to Twelve South's SurfacePad, albeit superior in function. The Nuova Pelle is an ultra-slim, seamless and hand-stitched one-piece cover made out of luxurious Argentinian leather that protects the iPhone 5 by wrapping around it and sticking to its back using a special removable/reusable adhesive - whilst offering minimal protection. Unlike Twelve South's SurfacePad, Vaja's Nuova Pelle features a magnetic closure system to keep the front cover at bay. Yes!
The Nuova Pelle is unique in that its sleek, minimal design incorporates a single, seamless piece of full-grain, vegetable-tanned Bridge Leather. Intricate design details like a hand-stitched, finished edge, and a proprietary magnetic closure system further set the Nuova Pelle apart from the competition. At less than 2.5MM thick, the Nuova Pelle offers full back and front screen protection, while adding virtually no dimension or weight to the overall smartphone.
Vaja is known for its craftsmanship and premium leather. Its first ever minimalist iPhone 5 cover case is an excellent upscale alternative to the SurfacePad if you're someone that is looking for the best quality leather and a magnetic closure. It doesn't feature a built-in stand however which the SurfacePad boasts. The Nuova Pelle is available right now in 6 colors made with Vaja's Floater leather. You'll be paying a premium for it too, at $80. Video awaits down below!
