Newly designed slim wallet case offers iPhone enthusiasts a barely there, essential accessory to simplify their everyday carry
Distil Union, a modern product design company creating inspired everyday solutions, today introduced Wally Ether, a custom-made iPhone 7 case designed to give the best iPhone wallet experience with minimal materials. Wally Ether utilizes a 2-part design consisting of a hard-shell frame and slim leather back with hidden card-carrying functionality. The Wally Ether’s core is made from strong, crystal-clear polycarbonate that allows the Jet Black or Rose Gold iPhone 7 to shine through. Additionally, the hard shell combats daily wear and tear, while the soft microfiber minimizes surface scratches.
Crafted with full-grain leather, the Wally Ether is guaranteed to develop a rich patina, deepening in color and sheen unique to each individual. The durable vegetable-tanned leather also lends a grip that feels warm to touch and allows for the complete concealment of must-have cards.
Wally Ether is designed to easily slide into pockets and is constructed with enough thickness to protect the raised camera. Free access to all ports and buttons allows the truest experience of features, including the iPhone 7’s new surround sound. Wally Ether holds 1-3 cards and a folded bill, featuring the original Wally Pull-TabTM, made from thin and durable nylon grosgrain ribbon that features a ribbed texture for tactile feedback. The Wally Pull-TabTM ribbon allows users to quickly and easily access their hidden cards in one seamless motion. Distil Union’s Wally Ether is available for the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus in Hickory, Ink, Rust and Slate, and retails for $34.99.
“We are big believers in paring down to the essentials,” said Lindsay Windham, co-founder and art director, Distil Union. “I admittedly carry my iPhone with me everywhere, and Wally Ether ensures I always have my wallet with me, too – without even thinking.”
“It’s an exercise in restraint to create something useful yet unobtrusive, to add functionality without distracting or detracting,” explains Nate Justiss, co-founder and industrial designer explains, “With Wally Ether, we’ve created a most minimal card-carrying solution that pays utmost respect to the design of the iPhone.”
The Wally Ether is part of a larger collection of minimal wallets that support the Distil Union mission to simplify daily carry by using the best materials and innovations.
