iPhone case made from Nudie brand underwear

By now you’ve probably already seen me mention my iPhone cases a few times on this site and on my Etsy page, but I made a new one this weekend that I thought was worth a special mention. My friend Kiya recently purchased 4 pairs of Nudie underwear and gave me the awesome little bags they came in. Nudie Jeans is a very popular manufacturer of raw denim jeans based in Switzerland. I didn’t even know they made underwear.

I held on to the bags hoping to find something cool to use the material for. When I decided to make a custom iPhone case for my friend Baz, I knew these bags would come in handy.

Here is a picture of the case in progress. The denim I used is actually from a pair of Nudie Jeans. I used the bags drawstring to make the hoop for a wallet chain or for a key attachment. As an extra detail I lined the back of the iPhone pocket with the part of the bag with the sizing. It’s a subtle touch that you really don’t notice unless you are closely examining the insides of the pockets. I love hiding little bits of detail like this.

Here’s another picture of the finished case on top of one of the untouched bags. As you can see, the headphone still plugs in while the case is closed, but the speaker on the bottom of the is also uncovered too.

I have 3 more bags, so I’ll probably make 3 more cases to sell at craft shows in the Bay. Right now I’m just waiting to get 3 more pieces of Nudie denim to recycle. I will be selling some of my iPhone cases at the next Mission Indie Mart at 12 Galaxies in SF (on October 28th) and I currently have a few different models on my Etsy page.

If you’d like to see video of my iPhone case, I demonstrate one of mine on my Craft Catavlog.

    Hi DocPop,

    Great work…your cases look amazing and I would love to buy one from you. How can I get hold of one of your “Nudie Jeans” cases? I can’t seem to find them on your website for sale…

    Thanks and best regards, Carl

    hi Karl.
    Im just waiting to get more Nudie material. I have enough scraps of other nice jeans to make iPhone cases, but I’d like to keep the Nudie underwear bags on hold until I get some nudie jeans that are being altered by 6 inches or more.
    When I get the material and make the cases I’ll post a new blog and I’ll even try my best to send you an email.

    It’s funny you should ask Carl…

    I have literally been waiting for months (ever since this article was published) for scraps of Nudie denim to use for the remaining 4 iPhone underwear cases and today I actually received my first pair of Nudies that I thought might work.

    After seeing your comment, I seam ripped them and measured them, but my scraps are literally half an inch too short for iPhone cases!!!

    So, I’m still waiting for more short folks to buy Nudies in the Bay, but in the meantime I do have some iPhone cases for sell on my craft site http://www.DocPopCrafts.com.

    High-tech gadgets today are seen anywhere. People are very interested to the new inventions of our technology. Through the consumer and retail company NPD Group, Engadget reports that Apple’s iPhone 3G has taken the number one spot for U.S. domestic sales of cellular handsets. According to NPD, Motorola’s RAZR has fallen second for the first time in 10 years. The shift seems to indicate that U.S. consumers are more interested in intricate mechanisms that offer a wide array of features. Massive advertising campaigns certainly hasn't hurt Apple’s chances, either. Apple is still the best when it comes to taste making and trendsetting gadget styles, even through a 15 percent drop on overall handsets sales that took place since the 2007 Christmas season. In the long run – with the help of Steve Jobs – America’s handset may truly be full-featured when compared with what consumers in Asian countries have enjoyed for years. In comparable, when it comes to choices for things like short-term payday cash loans, Americans also have a wide array from which to choose. With Christmas shopping approaching alongside a faltering economy, people are going to need some help this holiday season. Similar to an iPhone, payday cash can be a very useful tool if taken with care and responsibility.
