This phone case is made from leather with a fabric-lined interior. It is only sold online as “Classic Phone Case Pouch Quilted Iridescent Caviar.”

Its iridescent blue, quilted leather design is instantly recognizable, accentuated by gold hardware and an understated Chanel logo in the center.

Quilted leather uses leather pieces sewn together around another fabric used as insulating material, giving it that fluffy feeling that quilted leather has. It’s softer and more heavily padded than normal single-piece leather, giving a phone case like this a lot of insulation and protection.

Rebag sells this phone case for $1,995 on their eCommerce site, but different colors on the aftermarket can sell for as much as $3,000.

The Phone & Airpods Pro Case with Chain was made by the luxury fashion brand, Chanel. The case is light blue, made from shiny grained calfskin with a metal chain and logo toned with gold.

Calfskin leather is of course made from the sheared skin of baby cows, conditioned and tanned until it’s shiny and incredibly soft. As a phone case, calfskin is incredibly durable material despite its softness.

However, as with any leather with a soft feel, your Chanel phone case will be vulnerable to marking and scratching. A professional can restore the leather if this happens.

The Chanel phone case with matching Airpods case retails from Chanel for $3,050.
