Leather Options

For iPhone 13 and beyond, we are proud to offer two leather options. 

Our standard leather was developed by Nomad in collaboration with Danish tannery Ecco, utilizing modern tanning techniques that are adaptable, efficient, and innovative. It will still develop a patina over time but it's slightly less susceptible to scratches and marks than our Horween leather.

Horween leather is handcrafted entirely in the U.S.A. using old-fashioned techniques. It smells richly of leather and will absorb marks, scratches, and oils into a lustrous patina that is totally unique to you. If you're looking for authentic, American-made leather, we would point you to Horween.

Note, Modern Leather Case for iPhone 12 and earlier is only available in Horween leather.

More questions? Check out these FAQs. 

  • Will Modern Leather Folio scratch? Both of our leather options are naturally and minimally treated and will therefore easily scuff and mark within the first weeks days of use. With time, scuffs and marks will buff out into a rich and lustrous patina. If you’re after an authentic leather patina that evolves with time, this is absolutely the case for you.
  • Will Modern Leather Folio leave marks on my MagSafe chargers and accessories? If you frequently use Modern Leather Folio on MagSafe chargers and accessories, you may notice a subtle ring appear on your MagSafe puck. This is completely normal and can be wiped away with a damp rag.
