Grove's new SkateCase
Grove is a small team of creative folks located in Portland, Oregon who make handcrafted bamboo for Apple products. All of our design, production, fit-testing, packaging, and shipping are handled in-house. Our newest SkateCase for the iPhone 5 is a special collaboration with MapleXO and uses upcycled skateboard scrap material! PS Stix, a skateboard manufacturer, makes more than 4,000 skateboards a day, 200 per hour, three per minute! Each week, the factory throws away one city-bus load of scrap wood material. Together with MapleXO, we’re rescuing the waste from the dumpster and giving this vibrant wood a second life. Each case is hand-sanded and rubbed with citrus oil to bring out its unique color combination.
