For this week's giveaway, we've teamed up with Woolnut to offer MacRumors readers a chance to win a leather case designed for one of Apple's newer iPhones.

woolnut1
Woolnut makes a whole range of cases and sleeves for Apple's iPhones, iPads, and Macs, and has iPhone cases that fit the ‌iPhone‌ X, XS, XS Max, XR, 11, 11 Pro, and 11 Pro Max.

woolnut2
Slim in fit and priced affordably at 32.50 to 40 euros or $36 to $45, Woolnut's ‌iPhone‌ cases are made from a high-quality vegetable retanned full-grain leather sourced from Scandinavia. The soft pebble-textured leather will age and darken over time, taking on a rich patina that's unique to each individual user, plus it provides grip.

woolnut3
Microfiber that matches the leather of the case lines the interior of the case to provide protection for the glass exterior of the ‌iPhone‌, and a leather lip extends over the edge of the ‌iPhone‌ to keep the display safe when it's face down.

woolnut4
Buttons remain covered but usable, and at the rear of the case, the leather frames the camera cutout while protecting the camera. The tapered design of the case leaves the Lightning port accessible, and wireless charging is supported.

woolnut5
Woolnut's cases are available in black, green, and cognac, depending on the ‌iPhone‌ model. We have 12 ‌iPhone‌ cases to give away, with the winner to pick a case that fits their ‌iPhone‌.

Isn't it time we (humans) finally let go of that idea that wrapping high tech devices in the SKIN OF ANOTHER MAMAL is somehow stylish, luxurious or sexy!?!? Is this not just one more aberration that finally needs to end along with all the other abhorrent, racist, unjust actions of humanity? Come on Macrumors! Now is the time, to put an end to offers, giveaways, companies and advertisers that create, fuel and support this brutal, archaic practice!
Oh, here we go with more wokeness... And the whole, hi-tec world we live in, and which I guess you thoroughly enjoy (Apple products etc) and play an active part in has no effect on mamals? These particular animals are bred for eating, and we use their skins as well. They would not even otherwise exit. And honestly, that is as nothing compared with the impact we all make on the planet (and its mamals) just through living day-to-day, leather cases or not. Unless you are completely off grid (which clearly you are not) on some deserted island eating the fruit and drinking rain water, quit complaining about leather cases. Jeez! :rolleyes:

As a more priviliged person you could of course opt for rare snake leather. However, personally, I would recommend marsupial leather, preferably from the koala bear (or some other endangered species).

Nah, seriously... leather is mostly a by-product, at least unless you really buy exotic leather.
Quite frankly, leather is a natural product, quite durable and long lasting if treated properly. In comparison, synthetic products may be based on plastic, which is usually based on oil and difficult to impossible to recycle (unless we talk "thermal recycling"). So, as long as there's a surplus of leather it would be smarter to use that rather than synthetic stuff.
(But there's also people who believe adding 5% bio ethanol to car fuel is helping the environment... Meanwhile rainforest gets roded to plant sugar cane for production of the latter.)
Easy there... You are getting into arguments far, far too complicated for the woke brigade. Best just leave them to enjoy hemp sandals, coconut lattes, travelling to protest over supposed injustices about which they know nothing, with their iPhones enshrouded in synthetic cases, doing no harm whatsoever to the environment. If the world was full of them, it would be a fairer and much better place, natch.

My iPhone had all of 5 seconds of freedom between its retail packaging and its otterbox defender. Not exactly sexy but they sure do work.

These leather cases look nice but I doubt they would have saved my phone from any of its several trips to the ground.
I've dropped mine several times on direct concrete and it never broke! I'm surprised at how well built the 11 Pro Max is.
On topic: that green one is gorgeous. I might buy it anyway.
