Vaja is a relatively new case manufacturer that deals only with the highest quality leather and craftsmanship, and they’ve announced new cases for the Galaxy S4 via their official blog.
The price tags for these luxurious cases are not for the faint of heart, but for those who want guaranteed excellent craftsmanship and rare materials in their phone case, these are definitely among the best. Here’s the details of which types of cases are coming from Case-Mate’s and Vaja’s official press release:
• Crafted Woods, $80: Inspired by vintage automotive interiors, the Crafted Woods Collection is a marriage of sophisticated natural materials with a thoughtful attention to assembly and finishing detail. The texture and warmth of each wood is contrasted with a slowly polished brushed aluminum. This ageless combination creates a classic look that is a staple of sophisticated style. Available in Rosewood and Blackened Ash.
• Genuine Mother of Pearl, $150: To ensure a dazzling luminosity, the Crafted Pearls Collection features genuine Mother of Pearl harvested from mollusks found in the Pacific South Seas and Hawaii. Individual pieces of the exotic pearl are thoughtfully selected and carefully laid into a unique artistic design pattern that enhances its pigmentation and luster. Available in silver.
• Gemstones – $150: Inspired by statement gemstone jewelry, the Turquoise Gem case is crafted from genuine turquoise highlighted with warm gold striations and finished with gold brushed aluminum creating a statement piece for your smartphone. Available in Turquoise.
• Tortoiseshell, $50: The Case-Mate Tortoiseshell Case is created by first tinting a molded translucent polycarbonate shell and then delicately hand-painting each tinted shell individually – staying true to tortoise shell’s original characteristics where no two designs are exactly same. The outer edges of the case are meticulously chamfered to enhance the feel of the case when held in the hand. The Case-Mate Tortoise Shell Case is minimalist by design to maintain the sophisticated appearance and sleekness of your smartphone.
• Brushed Aluminum, $50: Sophistication is in the details. The Brushed Aluminum case excites with a blend of sleek & sporty with top-notch protection. Available in Brushed Gunmetal with Black.
• Carbon Fiber, $80: The Carbon Fiber Collection is crafted from the technologically advanced lightweight fibers used by Formula One racecars and luxury automobiles. By combining a weave of carbon fiber threads with a touch of brushed aluminum, the Case-Mate Carbon Fiber Collection creates a handsome aesthetic for high-performance automobile enthusiasts. Available in Nero (Black) and Argento (Silver)
• Glam, $50: Designed for elegantly styled women, the Case-Mate Glam Collection is inspired by dazzling fine jewelry that shimmers. The dynamic sparkle of the Glam Collection is created through a unique finishing process in which vibrant sparkles are captured onto a glossy, smooth surface, ensuring durability and a stunning depth of color. Available in Champagne, Rosegold, and Midnight.
• Madison, $100: The Madison Collection embodies the iconic trend of quilted fashion accessories. By combining quilted genuine leather with the added refinement of Swarovski Crystals, the Madison case is perfect for the fashionable, modern woman. Available in Black.
• Signature Flip, $50: Fashioned from genuine leather, the tailored design has 360-degree front and back protection. An ultra-soft microfiber lines the inside for extra protection and polish. It’s the perfect accompaniment to the boardroom and beyond. Available in Black.
